We respect the privacy of the visitors to the Wishbonebaby.co.uk and Philex.com websites and the websites connected with it. We take great care to protect your information. This privacy policy tells you what information we collect and how we may use it as well as the steps we take to ensure that it is protected.

 

What kind of information do we collect?

There are cases where we may ask you for personal information, such as your name, address, date of birth, gender, email address, etc. We do this for instance when you register for contests/promotions, respond to communication such as e-mail, and for services that require registration or subscription such as the extended warranty period. If you would like to be on our mailing list, we will ask you to actively opt-in. We might also collect personal information from you about a third party, for instance if the website allows you to send an email referring someone to our site or an active promotion, in which case we need to know the name and e-mail address of the recipient. That information will only be used for the specific purpose (delivering the email) and we will not further contact the third party unless the third party contacts us.

  • We may use ‘cookies’ to gather information about your visits to our website and enhance your experience. You can find more information on how we use cookies in the section ‘Use of Cookies’.
  • When you visit our websites we may collect so called ‘click stream’ data (server address, domain name etc). This information can be combined with information you have provided to us (for instance by registering), which will enable us to analyze and better customize your visits.

 

Use of visitors’ information

All personal information that we obtain about you will be recorded, used and protected by us in accordance with current data protection legislation and this privacy policy. We will primarily use your personal information to provide products and services to you and, for example:

  • To administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature and to provide you with the relevant products or services (for instance to deliver a prize you may have won in a contest). You may be contacted by phone or email.
  • To send you information/materials via e-mail or sms-messages about products, offers and news we think could interest you. This information may relate to products, offers and news of Philex and/or its licensees or carefully selected commercial partners. We only send you this if you have opted-in to receive Philex or Wishbonebaby e-mails and/or sms messages. In case you do not want to receive any e-mails and/or sms messages from us anymore, or if you want to modify you personal data or want your personal data to be deleted from our database, we refer you to the ‘Opt-out, delete or modify personal information’ section below
  • To analyze visits to the website and learn about the interests of our visitors in aggregate and also on personal level to better understand your interest and need, so we can improve our products and services and deliver to you the type of content, features and promotions that you are most interested in.

Disclosing personal information to third parties

Links to third parties

For your convenience and to improve the usage of the website we insert links to third parties, for which this privacy policy does not apply. These links take you outside our service and off the Philex & Wishbonebaby sites and are beyond our control. This includes links from partners that may use Philex Electronic Ltd or Wishbone logos as part of a co-branding agreement or sell Philex & Wishbone products. The sites you can link to have their own separate privacy policy and although we seek to protect the integrity of our site, Philex is not responsible and cannot be held liable for the content and activities of these sites. Your visit/access to these sites is therefore entirely at your own risk. Please note that these other sites may send their own cookies to users collect data or solicit personal information.
