Giving consent to receive newsletters

If you consent to receiving marketing communications from us, we will send you newsletters containing information about the management of angora goats, shows with angora goat classes, the annual collection and sale of mohair and angora goat related topics that we think you will find relevant and may occasionally tell you about a product or service we offer that we think you will find relevant.

In order to provide you with the best personalised experience and to anticipate which of our products and services you might be interested in, we will create a profile based on the information we hold about you. To create this profile we will store and analyze the personal data we have collected about you, including:

  • your name and email address, we may also store your telephone number and address.
  • your preferences and interests that you have either shared with us or we have inferred through your interactions with the BAGS and BMM website.
  • your purchase history with BAGS and BMM.

We will keep the profiles we create secure and we will not share them with any third parties.

You are in charge, meaning we may contact you only through the channels selected by you, such as email, telephone, or post.

If you wish to Opt-Out or unsubscribe from a particular channel, please follow the steps contained in the message you have received or contact us via the following email account: dataprotection@angoragoats-mohair.org.co.uk

What we will do with your information

For marketing purposes, we only use non-sensitive personal information such as your name, email address, postal address, business name (where relevant) engagement with previous marketing activity and, if you are or were a customer, a record of the products or services that you have previously purchased.

We may send you information on a range of topics that we think will be of interest to you. You can modify your preferences at any time.

If you choose not to receive marketing communications from us, this does not affect your ability to access our services or the way that we will provide those services to you.

Whether or not you consent to receiving marketing communications, if you are a client then we may still contact you in the future about issues relating to services you have previously bought from us. For example, if you have previously sent mohair to the annual collection then we might remind you when this years collection is taking place. This is because we believe that we have a ‘legitimate interest’ in sending such communication. You can ask not to receive such communication by speaking to us at the time that you use our services or by contacting us at dataprotection@angoragoats-mohair.org.uk.

Who has access to your personal information

We occasionally use third party suppliers to provide certain services such as to grade and sell the mohair each year. In such circumstances these suppliers may have limited access to your personal information.

The newsletters we distribute are serviced by MailPoet. We will therefore share your name and address with Mailpoet for processing in accordance with their Privacy Policy and Terms.

This is only so that they can provide their services to us. We remain in control of your personal information and work closely with all our suppliers to ensure that any personal information to which they have access remains secure.
