We use information held about you in the following ways:
Our main legal basis for collecting and using your personal information as described above is to perform our contract with you, i.e. to make sure you get your order when you want it.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties:
We will not knowingly sell or otherwise distribute your personal information to third parties, other than under the scenarios described in this section. That is our promise to you.
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall. For more insight, you may also want to read Shopify’s Privacy Statement.
In order help us meet our contractual obligation to deliver orders to you, your your delivery information may be shared and stored with external courier services and other delivery partners.
For email marketing purposes, we store email addresses and subscription preferences with both Shopify and Rare (Rare is our email marketing distribution application).
To enable our operations team to collate orders on a daily basis, send out our own overnight orders to our suppliers, put together delivery routes, and capture internal financial data for our own profitability calculations, we also store your information in a secure database outside of Shopify.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
We will retain your personal information where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so, e.g. while you hold an account with us or to enable us to meet our legal, tax or accounting obligations.
We will destroy or permanently anonymise your personal information at the point that we no longer need to process it for our ongoing legitimate business needs or for any legal reason. If this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store it and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
We will contact you via email when you have placed an order with us to confirm your order. We will also notify you via email when your order is out for delivery. In some cases we will outsource the notification to our delivery partners. This can be the courier service we are using to deliver a parcel to you.
We may occasionally need to contact you to enable us to fulfil your order correctly, for example if an item you have ordered is unavailable or if your delivery day needs to be changed. We will normally try to reach you by telephone or email.
We will not send you any marketing messages without your explicit consent. You can choose your marketing preferences on the checkout pages every time you place an order with us. You can also update or change your preferences by contacting our office or unsubscribing from any marketing email directly. We will always honour your updated preferences.
Security is important to us and we understand that when making payments online you need to have confidence in the website you are transacting through. We have highly secure facilities and processes to put your mind at ease.
We will never have access to any of your card details. At no time will any card details be stored on our website’s servers. At no time will we ask you to save your credit card details with us.
We process all payments through both Shopify and Stripe, an established online payment gateway that is certified to the highest security standards (PCI Level 1 Service Provider). You can confirm their certification in Visa’s Registry of Service Providers.
Delicatezza payment pages use industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), i.e. our payment pages begin with "https" and not "http". SSL does two main things: (1) encrypt data being transmitted and (2) verify that our browser is talking to the right payment gateway servers to minimise middle-man interception risk.
As part of the checkout process we undertake the following checks to prevent fraudulent use of cards:
