What we use your information for
When someone visits www.sparkleandco.co.uk we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
We may use your information for processing your enquiry, delivering any services or information requested by you; responding to complaints or account enquiries; verifying your identity when required to help to prevent and detect fraud or loss.
If you have consented to receive details of our services you can contact us at any time to have your details removed from lists or to update your information or to otherwise tell us how you would like to receive information about our services.

How long do we keep your information for?
We will only retain your data for as long as there is either a statutory requirement for us to do so or to be able to provide a service to you. This will usually require us to retain your personal data after any business relationship has ended for accounts and records purposes and to deal with any account support questions.
