We may also keep a record of these to inform any future communication with us and to demonstrate how we communicated with you throughout. We do this on the basis of our contractual obligations to you, our legal obligations and our legitimate interests in providing you with the best service and understanding how we can improve our service based on your experience.
  • To process payments and to prevent fraudulent transactions. We do this on the basis of our legitimate business interests. This also helps to protect our customers from fraud.

Security of your personal information

Our site uses secure server software to protect your information whenever you place an order or access your account information. This software encrypts information you input before it is sent to us to minimise the risk of this being intercepted before it is received by us. Our SSL encryption ensures that all online transactions made with us are completely secured. Access to your personal data is password-protected, and sensitive data (such as payment card information) is handled by SagePay (our payment service provider) and is secured by SSL encryption. 

We will take the highest level of precaution, in accordance with Industry Standards to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. However, whilst we take all the necessary steps to exclude viruses from this website, we cannot guarantee that such attempts will be successful and therefore we cannot accept liability for such viruses.

We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure password and firewall protected servers. Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure and unfortunately we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet. Please ensure that your password and user details are kept confidential. At Joel & Son Fabrics we will not ask you for your password (except when you log in to the website) and therefore will not take any responsibility for any misuse.
