1. The Information We Collect And How We Use It

Harvard International ltd collects personal information from you when you:

Register with the website on the 'Registration page'

If you register via this page, we collect information such as your name, address, Telephone No and e-mail address. This is used to personalise the service that you receive, for example by recognising you when you return to the website. If you choose to subscribe to any Newsletters on the 'Registration' page, then your name and e-mail address are used to send you selected Newsletters.

If you go on to PLACE YOUR ORDER, we will also collect the delivery address for the product ordered (if it is different from your home address). We use this information and that you provide when you register to progress your order.

If you order and pay we collect your credit card or debit card details. All payments are processed through a secure server by SagePay on our behalf. This means that we do not see or store your payment details.

Subscribe to Newsletters via the 'Mailing List' page

If you subscribe to receive Newsletters via this page we collect your name and e-mail address. If you wish to stop receiving our Newsletters, you can do so at any time, by clicking the 'unsubscribe' link on the bottom of each Newsletter that we send you or by clicking on Personal Details in 'Your account' and amending your preferences.

E-mail a friend information about a product on the website

If you chose to use this facility we collect your name and e-mail address and your friend's name and e-mail address. We use this to e-mail information about your selected product to your friend.


2. Information Sharing and Disclosure

2.1. We do not sell or rent your personal information. We may, however, give information about you to the following, for the express purposes as set out below:

If you subscribe to Newsletters from Goodmans any other Group company or our carefully selected partners

to other relevant members of the Group or our carefully selected partners (as the case may be) to enable them to send you their Newsletters.

If you register with the website or use the e-mail a friend facility:

to employees and agents of the Group for them to administer any accounts or services provided to you through the website.

and if you place an order with us:

to employees and agents of the Group for them to administer any accounts, products and services provided to you through the website, for example delivery services.

If you place an order so that we can determine whether or not to accept your order. In particular, SagePay will check the card details you have given against details held by your card issuer to ensure the payment details given are correct. If there is any anomaly with the details that you have provided, then SagePay may keep a record of the use of that card for the purpose of future security checks. This helps to protect you and us against fraudulent transactions.

If you buy a Set Top Box or Digital Television Recorder, to the TV Licensing Authority. We are obliged to notify them of your name and the address to which the TV will be delivered under the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1967.


Lastly, if ownership or operational control of all or part of our website were transferred, whether as part of the sale of Goodmans business or otherwise, we may disclose your personal information to a transferee. If that happens, we would require them to use your information in a way that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.


3. Credit & Debit Cards

3.1. If you pay for a product over this website, we use SagePay to process your payment. SagePay operates a secure server to process your payments details.
