Contractual obligation

When you purchase a service from me, or otherwise agree to my terms and conditions, a contract is formed between myself and you (the client).

I may use some of this personal information gathered from the contract in order to:

  1. Verify your identity for security purposes
  2. Sell to you or provide you with my services
  3. Advise you on my different services and how to gain the most from using this website

I will process this information based on the fact that there is a contract between us, or if you have asked that I use the information before entering into a legally binding contract.  I will keep processing your information until the contract between us ends or is terminated under the terms of the contract.

LEGAL OBLIGATION

On occasion I may need to process your information in order to comply with the law. This may include your personal information.

YOUR CONSENT

Where there is no contract formed between us, for example, when you browse this website or if you request further information about my services, you are giving me consent to process certain information which may be personal. I will try to gain your consent for processing such information, however, this may not always be possible.

When you complete my contact form, WordPress will share your personal information with me. I might then use this information to get in contact with you and send you marketing communications via email.

I will never use your information whereby you would be able to be personally identified unless you have given explicit consent for this.

I will keep processing your information as above until you withdraw your consent, or if it can be assumed that you no longer wish to consent. You are welcome to withdraw your consent at any time by emailing me at lydia@ellaparisa.com.
