Transferts of your information.
The information that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for Dream with Ava or one of our suppliers. Such processing may, for example, be required in order to fulfil your order, process your payment details or provide support services.
As the transmission of information via the Internet is never completely secure, we will do our best to protect your personal data, but cannot guarantee the security of 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.
How do we share the information we collect?
We are aware that it is Dream with Ava that you are trusting with your information, not some other company. But, to be able to carry out our business, we do need to work with a number of third parties who are experts in their particular fields – after all, we’re good at what we do, but we’re not good at everything! We are very careful who we share your information with, but it is important that you understand when that sharing takes place and why, and that’s what this section explains. The limited instances where we may share your information include:
– We share your information externally with our core service providers when required for our business to function: Dream with Ava relies on a number of
external companies to provide it with key services, products and applications in order to be able to provide the Services. These include for example companies who help us pick and pack orders, make deliveries, support our customers, carry out fraud protection and credit risk reduction checks, support our IT systems, helpkeep us secure, enable our marketing, audit whether we’re doing what we’re supposed to be doing, or make sure we’re keeping the books right. We just can’t do everything ourselves, after all, and working with experts in various fields enables us to improve our Services for you in the quickest, most efficient way.
Each of the external companies we work with has been selected by us for their ability to provide specific services needed. On that basis and only on that basis, we may therefore disclose your personal information to such third parties who need to be given specific tailored access to your information to facilitate our Services by performing key tasks on our behalf, and who are obligated to only use it in line with our instructions, and not to disclose or use it for other purposes. We are confident that we can trust those third party service providers with your information.
– We share your information when we’re required to comply with a legal request: to do business in all the countries that we do, Dream with Ava is required to liaise witha number of regulators and other law enforcement agencies in each of those countries. Whilst it doesn’t happen often (touch wood!), some of those regulators or agencies may legally require us to share your information with them, under law, under a court order or subpoena, or as a result of some other legal process. If we do come under a legal or regulatory duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, we will have to share your information if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply. Having said that, we may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overboard, vague or lack proper authority. We will also attempt to notify you about legal demands for your personal information when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency.
– We may share your information externally if we are considering a corporate transaction: We are always looking at ways to make our corporation stronger and more effective. As a result, we may sometime consider certain corporate transactions, such as a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganisation, or similar transaction or proceeding. If we were to consider such a transaction, that may involve the transfer of your information solely for the purposes of enabling that transaction or proceeding to be assessed. In the event that Dream with Ava sells or buys any business or assets, or if Dream with Ava or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, personal data which we hold about our customersmay be one of the transferred assets.
How we DON’T use your information
WE WILL NOT Sell your information without your consent: We will not sell your personal information– including your name, address, e-mail address, or credit card information – to any third party. We believe this is absolutely essential to receive and repay your trust in us.
We are always keen to hear from our customers and are always grateful for any time you spend providing us with the knowledge we need to ensure our customers are completely satisfied – after all, we want you to return to the site and to recommend us to your friends and family. If you have any questions or feedback about this statement, or if you would like us to stop processing your information, please do not hesitate to contact a customer service member of the Dream with Ava team, who will be delighted to answer any questions you may have. You can either contact Customer Care via Dream with Ava website or directly emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
