Privacy Policy

This Agreement was last modified on 18/04/2020

To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used when you access CrepPlug’s website. We are committed to protecting your privacy and committed to developing technology that gives you the most powerful and secure online experience. 

This privacy statement covers personally identifiable information. Personally, identifiable information is any information that is associated with your name or personal identity. 

What we collect 

During the registration process, the types of personal information you provide to us may include, name, address, phone, PayPal address, email address, username and password. We will use your contact details so that we can communicate with you directly about the products you purchase and that you sell through the Service and the services we provide including any queries, issues or concerns you or other users have. If you are not a registered user and you purchase an item through CrepPlug, you will be required to provide shipping and email addresses, which will be shared with the Seller. The Buyer’s shipping information will be contained in the receipt provided to the Seller. 

When you browse our website, you do so anonymously. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our web site you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our website. Like many other commercial websites, the Website may use a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how you use the Website. Please go to “Use of Cookies” below for more information. 

We keep records of the products you buy, sell or exchange through the Service and the payment method you use for the transaction. We will use payment and transaction information to assist in the payment process for any product you purchase through the Service. We will provide your details to the seller of any item you purchase including your username and the name, delivery address and phone number you provide at the checkout. 

Other users can provide information that is associated with you such as comments and likes relating to your items and messages they send to you. We will use personal information about you that is contained in private messages sent by you to other users to assist the fulfilment of orders made through the Service and to respond to any queries, issues, concerns or disputes they raise. 

How we use it 

We use your personal information for the following purposes: 

  • To make the site easier for you to use by not making you enter your personal information more than once. 
  • To provide the requested services 
  • To personalise the website for you 
  • To enforce our terms of service, prevent fraud and to keep the site as safe as possible 
  • To permit Sellers to ship items to Buyers. 
  • To help us create and publish content most relevant to you. 
  • To alert you of updated information and other new services provided from CrepPlug. 

Who we may share it with? 

We never sell or rent your personal information. We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law (for example, a warrant under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act), or in good faith to (a) comply with legal processes served on the site, or (b) protect the rights and property of CrepPlug, or (c) where our records indicate fraudulent activity or other deceptive practices that a governmental agency should be made aware of, or (d) where your communication suggests possible harm to others. We disclose your information to facilitate your transactions on the website. 

When you register, we will not share your information with third parties without your permission, other than for the limited exceptions already listed. It will only be used for the purposes stated above. We use personal information to reply to inquiries, handle complaints, provide operational notices, keep records up to date to notify you via periodic e-mails of technical service issues, specials, or other related product/service information. 

All CrepPlug’s transactions are processed by PayPal. Your use of PayPal’s services is governed by the Paypal Terms of Use and Privacy Policy (please read both). 

Security of your Personal Information 

CrepPlug strictly protects the security of your personal information. We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. 

Your personal information is never shared outside the company without your permission, except under conditions explained above. 

We don’t send spam and do not permit spam on CrepPlug. 

You also have a significant role in protecting your information. No one can see or edit your personal information without knowing your username and password, so do not share these with others. We are therefore not liable for loss/access to their personal data if you share your login details with anyone else. 

We use SSL encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data and throughout the whole website. 

We are not responsible for the loss of your information in unprecedented events such as a breach to Crepplug and our service. 

Access to your Personal Information 

We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. You may review and update this information at any time by logging into your account. 

Use of Cookies

This information is used for internal purposes only. The statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information. 

The Website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server.
