In general, the third-party service providers used by us will only collect and use your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. Examples of such providers are online payment processing systems and courier companies.

What is GDPR?

Known as the ‘General Data Protection Regulation’, GDPR was created as a means of granting citizens across the EU control over their personal data. Companies and businesses, such as Happy Beds, require your consent to retain your information, such as your email address, which can be used to keep in contact with you about campaigns, promotions and various other marketing purposes. The act came into effect on the 25th of May (25/05/18), which is why you’ve most likely heard the term frequently.

How does GDPR affect me?

If you decide that you don’t want Happy Beds, or any other company, to retain your information then you simply have to ‘Unsubscribe’, which can be achieved by pressing the unsubscribe button at the bottom of any Happy Beds email. Your information will be deleted from the company’s servers, though this will mean that you cease to receive any updates or notifications.

If you do wish to continue to receive this kind of information then you’ll be asked to re-opt into the mailing list. This will result in no change to how you usually receive emails. If you make a purchase after GDPR has come into effect you may re-opt into the mailing list, as you will be providing your information when making the order.

What do I do if I believe the information I have provided is incorrect?

If you believe that any information we have about you is incorrect or incomplete, please contact us. You can do so via our online form or by calling us. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.

If you are not sure that you have provided the correct delivery address, phone number or email address when placing an order on our website, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can ensure prompt dispatch and delivery using your correct details.
