This privacy notice also describes how we process (i.e. handle) your personal data, the basis upon which we process it, with whom it is shared, how it is stored and certain other important information relating to the protection of your personal data. The following policy explains all of this in some detail but we have also summarised the key points below.

  2. How we collected it and from whom? We collect data from you when you sign up to our website and when you place an order, return an order or enquire about products or services. This is collected from our website and from any phone calls or email correspondence you make to us.
  3. What do we use your personal data for? We use your personal data in order to send your order, make returns or enquire about products or services. If consent is given on our website, we will also use your personal data (such as email address) to send you marketing communications about Rowan Books.
  4. What is our lawful basis for using your personal data? As a party to a transaction, we have certain duties, powers and obligations conferred on us by law. In most cases we need to process your personal data in order to comply with these legal obligations and duties.

  6. Do we share your personal data? A list of all the parties with whom we may share your personal data are set out in the detailed information below.

The personal data we collect about you includes:

  • Your name (first name and last name)
  • Your postal address for both billing and delivery
  • Your telephone number and email address
  • Your Paypal account to be used for payment/refund purposes only

Inability to provide personal data

If you do not provide us with personal data that we require by law or under the terms of a contract with us, then we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are attempting to enter into with you (for example, providing you with products you would like to order). In this case, we may have to cancel an order you have placed with us but we will notify you of this at the time if this is the case.

Aggregated Data

We also collect, use and share aggregated data with third parties which includes statistical and demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data is derived from your personal data. This data is, however, not considered personal data by law as it does not directly, nor indirectly, reveal your identity. We may share this data with our third party agency to identify specific areas on our website that a customer interacts with to help us formulate our marketing strategy. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate a percentage of users accessing a certain area or product on the website. If we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data, it will be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

3. How is personal data collected?

We collect personal data from you in a number of different ways:

  • you may share information with us in order to purchase products from us and to make returns or enquiries associated with those products;
  • you may create an account with us in order to store personal information such as delivery addresses and products you would like to add to your wish-list for later use;
  • with your consent, you may share other information with us so that you are informed of events, promotions and offers that we may hold from time to time via email marketing.
  • with your consent, you may enter a competition on our website that requires you to provide us with personal information such as your first name, last name and email address;
  • you may provide us with feedback on products and services you have purchased from us which will be posted onto a third party review website which you agree to at the time of writing this information. This review is then posted onto our website for customers to view;
  • with your consent upon visiting our website, we will collect technical and usage data such as IP address, browser type, time zone settings, current location, operating system and information regarding the device(s) you have used to access our website and how you have used our website.


We use cookies which are placed when you visit our website for the first time. You will be asked to accept these cookies. Please note that if you decide to disable cookies through your browser settings, certain areas of our website may become inaccessible or no longer function properly.

4. How we use your personal data

We use your personal data only when the law allows us to. We most commonly use your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • when we need to perform the contract we have, or are about to enter into with you;
  • where it is considered necessary for our legitimate interests, or those of a third party, and your interests, along with your fundamental rights, do not override these;
  • where we are required to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation

Below you will see all of the ways in which we plan to use your personal data:

  • registration as a new customer;
  • process and deliver your order(s);
  • managing our relationship with you (for example, asking you to review your purchase);
  • participation in a competition or survey;
  • deliver relevant website content and advertisements;
  • send email communications if explicit consent has been provided in order for us to do so;
  • use of data analytics to improve the website, products, marketing and user experience;

When you have given your consent, we may use your personal data to send you information on products, offers, promotions and events which we think you may be interested in. If you have decided to opt-out then you will no longer receive this information from us. You will, however, continue to receive transactional emails from us in relation to an order you have placed with us such as order confirmation, dispatch confirmation, product review, confirmation of returns/refunds and when an item has returned to stock if you requested a notification.

We use your technical and usage data to further improve our website in order to provide you with a better shopping experience. This is necessary for our legitimate interests and allows us to study how customers interact with the website, products and services which in turn contribute to the development and growth of our business as well as our marketing strategy. Please see Legitimate Interest section below for further information.

We may also use your personal data for the purposes of complying with any laws, procedures and regulations which apply to us. For example, to respond to enquiries from HMRC or the police.

We may occasionally use your personal data for the purposes of statistical analysis or to respond to government surveys (for example, questionnaires sent to us by the Pensions Regulator or the Office of National Statistics) but this is completed on an anonymous basis.

We may transfer your personal information to a country outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and such information may also be processed by our suppliers who are operating for us outside the EEA.

Third Parties

We may share your personal data with the following categories of third parties:

  • Providers of payment systems that process your payments for products.
  • Delivery companies that we use to deliver your orders to you or collect them from you.
  • With your consent, agencies and suppliers whom we have retained to assist us to conduct promotional and marketing activity as well as provide technical assistance and support.

We will also disclose your personal data to third parties:

  • if we are under a legal duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or any lawful request from any legal or regulatory authority; or
  • to respond to any claims, and to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.

Most third parties with whom we share your personal data are limited (by law and by contract) in their ability to use your personal data for the specific purposes identified by us. These third parties are themselves subject to the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). They will be responsible for their own processing of personal data to the extent that processing is subject to, or relates to, those regulations.

We will always ensure that any third parties with whom we share your personal data are subject to privacy and security obligations consistent with this privacy notice and applicable laws.

We will ensure that we get your opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any external third parties that we use for email marketing purposes. We do not control these third party websites and are also not responsible for their own privacy or cookie policies. When you decide to leave our website, we encourage you to read, in full, Privacy and Cookie Policies of every website that you decide to visit.

Types of third parties that we do use or may use in the future include the following categories:

  • Analytics – help us to track and analyse the usage of our website to further improve the shopping experience for customers. This data is gathered and collected once a cookie has been dropped which is at the customers discretion.
  • Advertising hosts and providers – allow us to advertise with adverts relevant to customer search queries. We also utilise their re-marketing campaigns to target banner and text adverts to customers who have visited the website and then left.
  • Email organisers – allow us to send marketing emails to customer who have subscribed to hear more about Rowan Books. Emails are sent on a regular basis and sometimes include a certain level of personalisation such as first name or product purchase behaviour.
  • Website activity trackers – these allow us for example to identify customers exiting our website and to offer them an incentive to either
  • sign up to hear more from Rowan Books or with an offer they can use at checkout.
  • Complementary third parties – these allow us to serve promotional codes and banner advertisements across the web on chosen partner websites. For example, you might find a promotional code for Rowan Books on a voucher code website and click on a link that takes you to our website.
  • Payment providers – such as Paypal to enable the customer to pay for an order on our website. We do not store nor have access to credit or debit card details or account information in relation to a customer’s PayPal account. We receive payments via this method and also refund or part refund an order if requested. Please visit the PayPal website to read their Privacy Policy in full.
  • Mail and delivery companies – these allow us to send orders you place with us to your chosen destination. Information we share with them is in relation to the delivery address you supply us along with the name of the individual who the order is being sent.

Opting Out

You have the right to ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing communications at any time. You can do this by opening an email you have received from us and clicking ‘unsubscribe’ which can be found at the bottom of the email. Alternatively you can email us at request that we remove your email address from our database which can take up to 5 working days to complete. You can also log into third party websites and update your preferences by un-checking relevant boxes in order to stop receiving marketing communications.

If you decide to opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us, you will still continue to receive emails about your orders when placing one with us. This will include emails such as order confirmation, order dispatch confirmation, product/service experience (i.e. product review), abandon cart emails and information relating to returns such as exchange or refund confirmations. This is a legitimate interest to our business and to our customers.

If we wish to use your personal data for any other purpose, we will update this privacy notice and inform you.

5. Legitimate Interest

Under GDPR legislation, we have the ability to contact you if we believe you have shown a legitimate interest in our business and products. For example, if a customer has purchased a product from us, has shown interest in the products and brands or has a professional interest in the products and brands that we sell, we therefore can contact them knowing they have shown a legitimate interest in Rowan Books.

When visiting our website for the first time, you will have the opportunity to accept all cookies. Acceptance includes performance and marketing cookies which we will utilise to ensure we advertise relevant information to you and to provide a better shopping experience. It is our legitimate interest to use and analyse this data for our growth and future development.

6. Data security and retention

We are committed to protecting personal data from loss, misuse, disclosure, alteration, unauthorised access and destruction and take all reasonable precautions to safeguard the confidentiality of personal data. We have also limited access to your personal data within our business and certain employees, agents, contractors and other third parties (as described above) who have a business interest will be granted access to this data. The processing of your personal data by these individuals will be on our instructions and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

Although we make every effort to protect the personal data which you provide to us, the transmission of information over the internet is not completely secure. As such, you acknowledge that we cannot guarantee the security of personal data transmitted to us over the internet, and that any such transmission is at your own risk.

Once we have received your personal data, we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorised access and take steps to ensure that any third parties with whom we share your personal data do the same.

By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including contact, identity and transactional Data) for seven years after they cease being customers for tax (HMRC) purposes.

If there is a suspected data breach, we have put in place procedures to deal with this in an appropriate way. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally obliged to do so.

How long do we retain your personal data?

We keep your personal data for no longer than we need to for the purposes for which we use it as set out above.

At your request, we will delete your data from our systems, unless we are legally required to retain it.

7. Your legal rights

Under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), which are designed to protect your personal data, we need to have what is called a lawful basis or ground each time we use, share or otherwise process your personal data. When you use our site to purchase products from us, the processing of your personal data is necessary to fulfil your orders and is a lawful basis for collecting and using the data you give us.

Certain uses of your personal data, or other processing activities, may not be strictly necessary to perform our legal duties, or to exercise our powers; however, they may be necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party. They may also be in your interests.

When we say “legitimate interests”, we mean ours (or a third party’s) interests in operating the service as efficiently and securely as possible. For example, we may choose to use a third party to store your personal data; we may do this because our use of that service means that your personal data is more secure.

In order for you to receive the full benefit of our site, such as to take advantage of offers, promotions or receive marketing communications, we will need your consent to collect and use your personal data. Under these circumstances, we will inform you of how the data you provide will be collected, stored and used before seeking your consent. In addition, you will be informed how to withdraw or modify your consent at any time.

You may withdraw your consent, or object to our processing of your personal data in a certain way (where you have the right to do so), by contacting Wendy Stewart, Administration Manager, Rowan Books, Swan Court, Chelsea Manor Street, London SW3 5RU.

What are your rights in relation to your personal data?

You have certain rights in relation to your personal data; those rights will not necessarily apply in all cases or to all personal data which is processed by us. For example, certain rights will not apply where we need to process personal data to comply with our legal duties.

You have the right to request that we:

  • provide you with a copy of any personal data which we hold about you;
  • update any of your personal data which is out of date or incorrect;
  • delete any personal data which we hold about you (although in these circumstances it may be difficult to provide you with orders that you may require);
  • restrict the way that we process your personal data;
  • consider any valid objections which you have to our use of your personal data; or
  • provide your personal data to a third party provider of services.

We will consider all such requests (including whether they apply in a particular case) and provide our response within the time period stated by applicable law which is 30 days (1 month of receipt)

When you make a request, we will acknowledge your request and we may ask you to provide us with some further information to allow us to confirm your identity.

8. Changes to our Privacy Policy

We may amend this privacy policy from time to time. Any changes we make to our privacy notice in the future will be notified to you in the next communication from us to you such as a new order or a newsletter that you have consented to receive. The date of our most recent changes can be found at the bottom of this policy and will be updated as and when an

amendment is made. The most recent and up to date policy will be available on the Rowan Books website at all times unless the site is undergoing scheduled maintenance.
