1. INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT FROM YOU
Your Customer Record
When you place your first order with us you’ll be required to specify your name, address, telephone number and email address. This will create a Customer Record which is stored on our website.
You will also need to specify a Customer Code which, when used in conjunction with your email address, gives access to your Customer Record and allows you to place further orders and download any maps you have ordered as PDFs. (Please see the section below, ‘Choosing your Customer Code’).
Logging on to your Customer Record using this email address and Customer Code will be able to access the following information:
Your name, address and telephone number;
Your order history;
The delivery address you have specified for each order.
You will also be able to download any orders you have placed for PDF maps.
No payment-card information is kept as part of the Customer Record (please see the section below, ‘Payment’).
When you are ready to make your payment you will be directed to the secure-payment site operated by our merchant service, WorldPay. Your payment-card details will be entered on WorldPay’s site, not on Cassini’s. At no point in this process are your payment-card details entered in or stored on Cassini’s website and so your Customer Code will thus give no access to this information.
Each time you place an order your Customer Record will access your address and delivery details (both of which you can change at any time) but you will on each occasion be asked to re-enter all payment-card details once you’ve been directed to WorldPay’s site.
On occasions, you may find during the payment process that you are asked for an additional security code through a pop-up box from ‘Verified by Visa’ or similar. As at that time you are on WorldPay’s site, not Cassini’s, Cassini cannot control nor predict whether or why this appears. Any password you will need to enter here will be one that you have separately set up with the company in question. If you have any questions about this you will need to contact your card issuer or bank.
Choosing, using and changing your Customer Code
We recommend that you choose a customer code that is easy to remember and also which is not the same as or similar to any that you use for high-security purposes, such as on-line banking. The customer code must be at least 4 characters long and is case-sensitive.
If you forget your customer code you can request that it be resupplied to you. As the security implication is low, this will be sent unencrypted in a normal email to the email address we hold for you.
If you wish to change your Customer Code you can at any time visit the ‘My Account’ section of Cassini’s website and log in using your email address and current Customer Code. Towards the bottom of the screen you’ll see a section called ‘Change Customer Code’ – click on that and follow the instructions.
Your order and payment confirmation
Once you have successfully placed your order you will receive two emails, one from Cassini confirming the order and one from WorldPay confirming the payment.
Neither of these will mention your Customer Code, your telephone number or any card-payment details (except for the amount paid).
Both of these will confirm the Cassini order number, the product/s you have ordered, the price and any p&p charges.
The email from Cassini will confirm the name and address to which the order is to be delivered: please check this and contact email@example.com (quoting your 5-digit Cassini order number) if this is incorrect.
The email from WorldPay will confirm the name and address of the person who placed the order and the transaction ID for that payment (this will not give access to any card-payment details).
Please note that one or both of these emails can occasionally get intercepted by spam filters or other security devices on your computer or at your ISP and the operation of these is beyond Cassini’s control. The non-arrival of one or both of these emails does not necessarily mean that your payment has not been received or that your order will not be fulfilled. If you would like to check this, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org (quoting your 5-digit Cassini order number).

5. SECURITY AND DATA RETENTION

We will retain your information for a reasonable period or as long as the law requires. Countries outside the European Economic Area do not always have strong data protection laws. However, we will always take steps to ensure that your information is used by third parties in accordance with this policy. Unless required to do so by law, we will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent.
6. ACCESSING AND UPDATING
You are entitled to see the information held about you and you may ask us to make any necessary changes to ensure that it is accurate and kept up to date. If you wish to do this, please contact us at email@example.com. We are entitled by law to charge a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.
