What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Sarah.pk collects personal information in several ways when you place an order or make an account with sarah.pk. By registering, you are consenting to the collection of your personal data. If an order is placed with us, we need to hold personal information including your name, email address, phone numbers, home address, shipping and credit/debit card billing address (es) for the purpose of the order process. Saved card details will never be shared with third parties and will only be used to process your order, using our Payment Service provider’s systems. We may also obtain information as a result of authentication or identity checks which may contain your telephone number. This number may be given to our courier for delivery services. These details allow us to process your order and to let you know the status of your order. Rest assured, your personal information is protected by an additional security layer called SSL which ensures your sensitive information is transmitted securely through an encrypted link. We also use non-personal data such as third-party cookies to collect statistics to enhance and simplify your visit.
The cookies used are both permanent and temporary cookies (session cookies). The permanent cookies are stored on your computer or mobile device for no longer than 24 months. You can easily erase cookies from your computer or mobile device using your browser.
