We use the information we collect to ensure that orders are processed smoothly. We are keen to make the experience of shopping at Blackmoor Nurseries as engaging as possible, but at no time will we pass on your information without your prior consent.

When you place an order, we need to know your name, e-mail address, delivery address and payment details. This allows us to process and fulfil your orders and to keep you up to date on their progress.
This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
3.1 Site visitation tracking
Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.
Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data processor (see section 6.0 below).
Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.
3.2 Our Website
Should you choose to add a product review on our website, the name you enter with your comment will be saved to this website’s database, along with your computer’s IP address and the time and date that you submitted the comment. This information is only used to identify you as a contributor, and is not passed on to any of the third party data processors detailed below. Only your name will be shown on the public-facing website.
Your comment and it’s associated personal data will remain on this site until we see fit to either remove the review. Should you wish to have the comment and it’s associated personal data deleted, please email us here using the email address that you commented with.

NOTE: You should avoid entering personally identifiable information to the actual comment field of any blog post comments that you submit on this website.
3.3 Contact forms and email links
Should you choose to contact us using the contact form on our Contact us page or an email link, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to / be processed by any of the third party data processors defined in section 6.0. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted using SHA-2, 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices.
3.4 Email newsletter
If you choose to join our email newsletter, the email address that you submit to us will be forwarded to Mail Manager who provide us with our email marketing platform. We consider Campaign Monitor to be a third party data processor (see section 6.0 below). The email address that you submit will not be stored within this website’s own database or in any of our internal computer systems.
Your email address will remain within our Mail Manager database for as long as we continue to use their services for email marketing or until you specifically request removal from the list. You can do this by unsubscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in any email newsletters that we send you or by requesting removal via email. When requesting removal via email, please send your email to us using the email account that is subscribed to the mailing list.
If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before joining our email newsletter.
While your email address remains within the Mail Manager database, you will receive periodic newsletter-style emails from us.
Your email address, name and business details are also stored on Office Outlook if you contact Blackmoor Nursery through our contact us form, email us or call us.
