Furness Tradition Privacy Policy

 

This year, the laws that decide how your personal details are used for marketing are changing. The idea is to hand control back to you, the consumer, and make sure that you don’t get spammed with loads of stuff that you don’t want.

Furness Tradition  are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our customers. We do not sell, rent or trade our email lists or customer data with other companies or businesses.

This Privacy Policy provides lots of detailed information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.
