Privacy & Cookies

Thank you for visiting 5DChocolates.com (the “Website” of Fifth Dimension Chocolates Ltd). Please take a moment to read this privacy policy, which tells you how we use personal information collected at this site. By using this website, you are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy. These practices may be changed, but any changes will be posted and changes will only apply to activities and information on a going forward, not retroactive basis. You are encouraged to review the privacy policy whenever you visit the site to make sure that you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.

 

Collection of Information

When you place an order or an enquiry about our products we need to know your name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, and, if ordering, your computer’s IP address and the time and date that you place the order, your credit card number and expiry date. If you have ordered products for a third party we will need to know their name and postal address. We gather this information to allow us to process your registration and process any orders you may make. The relevant information is then used by us, our agents and sub-contractors to organise delivery, provide you with information on your account, and to communicate with you on any matter relating to your order and the provision of our service.

We may also use aggregate information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring website usage in order to help us develop the website and our services and may provide such aggregate information to third parties. These statistics will not include information that can be used to identify any individual.

 

Review of Our Company or Products

When you place the order with us for the first time, we will provide your name and email address to our customer service agencies (e.g. Trustedsite, Stamped.io) for research and analysis purposes so that we can monitor and improve the products and services we provide. We or our agents (and sub-contractors) may contact you by e-mail or telephone to ask you for your feedback and comments on our products and services.

Should you choose to add a review to our company or any of our products, the name and email address you enter with your comment will be saved to our database, along with your computer’s IP address and the time and date that you submitted the comment. This information is only used to identify you as a contributor to the review section and is not passed on to any other parties. Only your name will be shown on the public-facing website. (Note: If the supplied email address is linked to a Trustedsite/Stamped.io account, your photo will also be displayed from the Trustedsite/Stamped.io review.)

Your comment and its associated personal data will remain on this site until we see fit to remove the product.

NOTE: You should avoid entering personally identifiable information to the actual comment field that you submit on this website.

 

Distribution of Information

Any information you supplied to us via the website or by email/post/phone, we may share information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us / liaising with us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when:

  1. permitted or required by law; or,
  2. trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized transactions; or,
  3. investigating fraud which has already taken place.

The information is not provided to these companies or organisations for marketing purposes.
