In order to process your order we will send you a confirmation email or we may need to contact you by telephone or email to verify details before we are able to process and dispatch your order or we may be unable to accept your order. Your card details will only be shared with any third parties as is necessary to process your transaction. We need to contact card issuers for validation checks and authorisation on all card payments. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. Friendship will validate the names, addresses and other information supplied during the order process against commercially available records (e.g Electoral Roll data, Credit Reference Services). A third party may also be instructed to complete these checks. By ordering from the friendship.shoes website you consent to such checks being made. Any information given may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of the information. These measures are taken as extra protection for you, to ensure your online shopping experience with us is as safe and secure as possible.
We also use your information to deliver the goods to you, or we might give your details to our carrier if they deliver on our behalf.
We may also use the information to improve our website and personalise your experience during your visit. If we are sold or merged with another company we may transfer, sell or assign information about your relationship with us to third parties, including information that identifies you and other information concerning your relationship with us.
If you “opt in” to receive information from Friendship by post and/or email and/or SMS and/or MMS and/or Mobile Push and/or telephone we may periodically contact you about new products, special offers, promotions or other information which we think you may find interesting using the contact details which you have provided.
