Cookies we use
Blooming Artificial uses third party remarketing cookies. This means we will continue to show ads to you across the internet, specifically on the Google Content Network. This cookie does not collect any identifiable information, but will monitor the pages you visit. This allows us to make special offers and ads more relevant to you.
You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page. You may also opt out of interest-based advertising entirely using your cookie settings.
What information do we collect from you?
Blooming Artificial will only collect personal information that is relevant to your order – i.e. names, addresses, telephone number and email addresses. We may ask for additional information such as birthdays, gender etc. though this is voluntary and will only be used to produce relevant, personalised offers for you.
Use of your information
The primary use of your personal information is to despatch and keep you informed of the progress of your orders.
We request additional voluntary information in order to provide a personalised service. We also aggregate this information to improve our website and marketing.
Sharing of personal information
We will only share personal information with our partner warehouses and our parent company Signwaves Limited. This will only include information on packing slips and despatch notes to enable them to ship orders to you on our behalf.
