Your information and where it goes

Sovereign Attire Limited (“Sovereign Socks”) and/or any of its international partners or associated companies (“Sovereign Socks” or “we” or “us”) take our relationship with all our users seriously, and this includes how we handle the data you give us.

This Privacy Policy sets out the ways we process any personal data collected via our Website.

1. When do we collect personal information?

Our Website is free for you to browse through and read.

We only ask for your personal information for the following reasons:

  • If you want to purchase product(s) from the website.
  • If you want to take part in a prize draw or competition.
  • If you want to contact us, send us an email or offer feedback.
  • If you want to receive Sovereign Socks news and exclusive offers via email.

We only collect personal information (such as your name, e-mail, and address details) if you choose to provide that information to us in response to our request.

What if I am under 16?

If you are a child under 16 and want to receive Sovereign Socks news, we ask that a parent or guardian register. By this we mean that a parent or guardian can register on your behalf using their details. We ask this so that as a child, your personal details are protected, and to ensure that you have parental consent to take part. Sovereign Socks does not ask a person under 16 for more personal information as a condition of participation than is necessary for a given promotion.

2. What do we do with the information?

We may require you to provide personal information such as your credit card details and your billing address for the purposes of completing your order. We will only use this information for the purposes of managing your order or your usage of the Website.

Providing additional personal information is up to you. We collect personal information to enter you in contests and notify you of results, to e-mail you with updates, news and special offers, to respond to your questions or comments, to register you for certain features on the Website.

Sovereign Socks (and those people or companies employed by Sovereign Socks who help make this website, its content and its services) will process and use your personal information to respond to your feedback – like responding to problems, improving our services and gearing what we do to suit your requirements further.

Beyond this, we will not share your information with any other company without your consent unless we are required to do so by law, if you have won a prize or if you have made a request for specific information. If you give us consent then we may share your information with our partners in order that they can contact you with information, promotions, products, services and offers that may be interesting to you.

By entering competitions on the website where you can receive third party prizes, you give your consent to share your details with the provider of the third-party prize.
We will never sell your information to any other company.

3. Asking your permission

If you register on the website or make a purchase, we may also contact you by email with further information or updates concerning our products.

4. How to unsubscribe

Our policy is to allow users to unsubscribe from our regular emails at any time. You can do this by sending an e-mail to info@sovereignsocks.com [E13] requesting your information be removed from the mailing list.

If you have asked us to stop sending emails, and this hasn’t happened, it may be because the email address to which we are sending them is not the same as the address you sent your request from. Please check the address we are using and include this information in your request. The easiest way to do this is to return to us the whole of the unwanted email. The address we are sending to is included within the message.

6. Use of cookies

We may use cookies in order to provide a better service or identify which pages on the website are of special interest. A cookie is a small piece of information which a website stores via your web browser on your computer and which can later be retrieved. Cookies cannot be read by a website other than the one which set it. The main objective is to identify users and personalise their visit by customising web pages for them, for example by welcoming them by name next time they visit the same website. Most cookies last only through one session or visit to our website. None will contain information that will enable anyone to contact you via telephone, e-mail, or any other means.

We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to encounter that information to provide products or services to you or to do their jobs.

8. Links to other websites

We may offer links to other websites we use and recommend. However, we are not responsible for the content or information collection policies of websites operated by other companies. If you visit another website, we advise you to review their privacy and other policies.
