At Music World we are committed to respecting your privacy.
General Data Protection Regulation
In May 2018, a new EU regulation came into force – The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR raises the standards by which data privacy is measured. Music World takes your privacy extremely seriously and makes every effort to follow the new rulings of GDPR. We will never contact you for marketing purposes without your express permission.
When you place orders or access 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 laws, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access.
All our website financial transactions are handled through our payment services provider. Payments through the Music World website are taken via Global Iris, HSBC’s online payment processing system. Global Iris is Global Payments’ online payment processing solution. HSBC Merchant Services has changed its name to Global Payments.
What type of data do we collect?
We collect personal information (PII) such as your name, postal addresses, email address, phone number, purchase history and browsing behaviour. We store this information when you place an order with Music World or submit your data to us (using a web-form or a newsletter sign-up form).
Because PII is particularly sensitive, we’re also particularly careful about how it’s used: we never, ever share or sell PII (or any data for that matter) to any other business.
Commitment to Data Security
Your data is held in accordance with our data protection registration notification. When you place an order on this website, we consider the information you enter as private. The information is kept on a secure server protected from outside parties.
What are cookies?
Cookies are pieces of data stored on your computer, which our website uses to help provide a better experience for you as a customer.
No personal information (PII) is collected by the cookies; they simply allow you to have a smoother shopping experience.
Security of your personal information
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure (password- and firewall- protected) servers. All electronic transactions you make to or receive from us will be encrypted using SSL technology.
You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will not ask you for your password (except when you log in to the website).
Third party websites
The website contains links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of third party websites.
Please let us know if the personal information which we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated.
