- Who is responsible for your personal information
This Privacy Statement applies to the personal information of The Spellbound Co. customers where your personal information is passed to The Spellbound Co. by you or by your Spellbound Ambassador. References to “The Spellbound Co.”, “Spellbound”, “us”, “we” or “our” in this Privacy Statement mean The Spellbound Co. at Unit 50715, PO Box 6945, London, W1A 6US. Where your personal information is passed to The Spellbound Co., we may be a controller of your personal information. Where you choose to purchase The Spellbound Co. goods via a Spellbound Ambassador, your personal information will also be processed by the Ambassador, as a separate controller of your personal information. Spellbound Ambassadors are independent and are not employed by The Spellbound Co. The Spellbound Co. is not responsible for the use of personal information by Ambassadors. This means that the Ambassadors will, independently from The Spellbound Co’s business operations, process your personal information for purposes they decide and in ways that they decide, including for their own marketing purposes. In general, The Spellbound Co’s independent ambassadors will use your personal information in a way that is compatible with this Privacy Statement. If they use your personal information in a different way, they are required to provide you with further privacy information to comply with their own legal obligations under data protection law.
