Privacy Policy

Personal information submitted to us through our website will be used for the purposes specified in this policy or on the relevant pages of the website.


SECTION 1 – Personal information Collection

  • When you purchase something from our online store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address.
  • When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.
  • Email marketing:  we may send you emails about our online store, new products and other updates. In practice, you will usually either expressly agree in advance to our use of your personal information for marketing purposes, or we will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of the use of your personal information for marketing purposes.

SECTION 2 – Use of personal information

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return of a purchase, it is implied that you consent to our collecting that information and the use of it for that specific reason only.

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will make it clear this is what it is for e.g. if we ask for your email address so you can subscribe to our newsletter.

If you wish to withdraw your consent for us to contact you,  please let us know via email on admin@paperprojects.co.uk  or by mailing us at: Paper Projects Ltd., Unit 1 Haslemere Industrial Estate, Bishops Stortford,  Hertfordshire, United Kingdom CM23 3HG

(a)      to the extent that we are required to do so by law;

(d)      [to the purchaser (or prospective purchaser) of any business or asset that we are (or are contemplating) selling; and]

(e)      [to any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.]

3.3     Except as provided in this policy, we will not provide your personal information to third parties.


SECTION 4  – Security

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

 5.2  Granting us permission to use cookies

If the settings in your web browser are adjusted as such that it accepts cookies, and your continued use of our website, will mean that you consent to us using cookies (implied consent). Should you not wish for us to use cookies then you can stop your browser excepting cookies by adjusting it's security preferences.

These analytics programs also tell us how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before. This helps us to put more money into developing our services for you instead of marketing spend.
