Privacy and Cookie Policy

At Filofax, we are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect from you to process orders and to provide a more personalised shopping experience.

What information do we collect and how do we use it?

When you order, we need your name, email address, registered cardholder address and delivery address (if different). This allows us to process and fulfil your orders and to notify you of your order status. We also ask for a telephone number, which enables us to contact you urgently, if there is a problem with your order. For some international deliveries this number may be given to couriers.

When you subscribe to our news bulletins or focus groups, we will ask you for your email address so we can contact you with any relevant Product or special promotions.

When you enter a competition or other promotional feature, we may ask for your name, address and email address so we can administer the competition and notify the winner.

Filofax personalises your shopping experience by using your purchases to shape our future product offerings available on this site. We also monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to improve and develop the design and layout of this site.

Will Filofax disclose the information it collects to outside parties?

Filofax does not sell, trade, or rent your information to others and is committed to protecting your privacy. Filofax welcomes your questions and comments about privacy. Please send your enquiries to webmaster@filofax.co.uk.

How does Filofax protect customer information?

When you place your orders or access your account information, we offer the use of a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, as required by the UK Data Protection Act of 1998, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we are able to disclose sensitive information.
