Falkon Digital Privacy Policy

...get yourself a nice brew before reading it all

Falkon Digital Privacy Policy

We have been told by very important people to rewrite our Privacy Policy to explain when and why we collect personal information about people who visit our website, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others, and how we keep it secure. But really we have always been nice people and have always looked after your data carefully; we are the company your data’s parents would approve of.

It’s quite long winded so you may want to get yourself a nice brew before reading it all.

We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively.

We will not share your information with any other third party for their marketing purposes.

16 OR UNDER

As a family business we are concerned to protect the privacy of children aged 16 or under, they are so influential at that age we wouldn’t want them sharing any information without thinking of it, be it an email address or selfie. If you are aged 16 or under‚ please get your parent/guardian’s permission beforehand whenever you provide us with personal information, but most importantly stay in school and drugs are bad.
