At Quirky Gift Library we are committed to ensuring that the trust you put in us by using our website is respected. We want you to feel confident that the information you share with us is being looked after and reassure you that we will never give your details to third parties. We know how important it is to get this bit right, so read our full privacy policy below.

The Type of Data We Collect

Your order Details

When you buy a product on our website in order to process your order we do need to collect some of your details. We need your name and address in which to send the order. We also need a contact email address to send you an order confirmation and to alert you when the item has been dispatched. We also like to take a contact number so we can update you with tracking information or get in touch if there is an issue with your order.

We hold onto this information for 12 months to ensure that if you reorder we have your details to hand. You can be assured that we hold this information securely and will never allow third parties access to your details.

Mailing Lists

At checkout we give you the option to sign up to our mailing list. The purpose of any correspondence will be to let you know about new products that we think you might like to see. The other reason will be to give you a special deal as one of our loyal customers. If there comes a point where we no longer make you smile we won’t make it any more awkward for you to break up with us. On any email we send, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time. We use a third party provider, MailChimp to deliver these emails. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.
