Future Postal Mailings – Opting Out

We respect your privacy rights and are registered with the Data Protection Register. Our brochure is usually mailed out 4 times a year but we often write to you with special offers or interesting deals from other parties or share our database with other respectable and trusted companies.

If you would prefer not to receive such mailings but are happy for us to write to you with our own offers, then please contact us asking for your details to be put on our “Suppression File”. You can do this by any of the contact methods at the bottom of this page or, if you are placing an order, telling us on the order form.

Alternatively you can remove yourself from all future mailings by contacting us using any of the methods listed at the bottom of this page or, if you are placing an order, telling us on the order form.

Do I have choices regarding how my information is used?

You remain in control of your information. At the time you provide your information, you can choose whether you want to receive further communications about special offers, product information or other marketing messages. You can opt-out of any marketing communications from The Calendar and Gift Company at any time by contacting us. All e-mail communications from us, such as newsletters, tell you how to stop receiving them.

Can I access/update my information?

How long will my information be stored?

The Calendar and Gift Company believes it is important, for privacy and security reasons, to delete information when it is no longer needed. Data retention periods differ depending on the type of information collected and its intended purpose.

If you order a product or service from us, shipping and billing information will be archived according to legal requirements. If you send us a question or concern, we will maintain your information for a reasonable period of time and then delete it.
