If an order is placed with us, we need to hold personal information including your name, email address, phone numbers and home address so that we can process and fulfil your orders.
All data provided by buyers will be added to a Database which is the property of The Blackbird Gallery and will be used:
- To enable both easier use of the site and the purchase of goods;
- To inform buyers via e-mail of any new products, special offers and news on products offered on this site.
The Blackbird Gallery will not disclose that information to any third party without your consent, except for the purpose of processing the order and arranging delivery.
The Blackbird Gallery is committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of the buyer’s personal information by providing you with a safe and secure transaction environment when buying online. Credit card details are entered directly into our payment partner's systems and are neither transmitted nor held on the seller’s systems.
The buyer’s personal information may also be checked with credit agencies to prevent fraud. Where there is a legal obligation to do so, we may disclose your information to any relevant regulatory body.

A cookie consists of a piece of text sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
