Processing of Personal Information
Styld undertakes not to sell, share or trade any personal information collected online. Personal information processed online will only be disclosed within the confines of our corporate group and that of our service providers, when permissible to provide a service to customers or improve online experience. When you sign up for our Styld newsletters or marketing mailers, you grant us permission to send you marketing communications. Marketing communication is standardised to one mailer per day, however, this number may increase during special campaigns and/or competition periods. You may unsubscribe to marketing communications at any time by clicking on the link located within the electronic marketing material, or by contacting Customer Service.
After an order is placed, Styld will send you transactional emails for the purpose of tracking your order and keeping you informed. Furthermore, once you have placed an order, you acknowledge consent to Styld contacting you for purposes relating to the order and performance of the purchase agreement. Transactional emails are not considered as marketing communications and/or direct marketing.
Please take note that Styld occasionally partners with other companies and institutions for promotions, campaigns and competitions. If you are subscribed to the third-party database and have consented to them sending you marketing material, you may receive marketing material from the third party relating to Styld, even if you have unsubscribed to Styld’s marketing communication service. Should a third party send you Styld marketing material without your consent, kindly report this to our Styld legal department (service@Styld.co.za) in order for us to investigate.
Any complaints regarding the processing of Personal Information can be sent to our Information Officer (Hello@styld.co.za) and will be addressed as a matter of urgency.
