We may need to update this policy from time to time and where there is any significant change we will let you know – mostly likely by email.
How we collect your personal data
When you visit our website or open an account with us we collect personal data. Some of the information we collect is by you specifically giving it to us directly. This will be through the means of you filling in your personal information into a contact form, product order form, or by providing it to us in a phone conversation, or by sending us an email. In some cases, and only at your written request, we may hold (securely offline) your credit card information to make it easier/quicker for you to make payments if you are doing so on a regular basis. Another example would be if you have attended an event or talk hosted by Noble Naturals, you might fill in a registration form. If you are a practitioner, we may ask for proof of qualifications. You don’t have to provide us with personal data but it might mean you won’t be able to use some part of the website or establish a trade account with us.
Some information might be collected automatically such as your computer/device’s IP address, device type, operating system or browser type. This may happen when you visit our website automatically by the analytics software used which helps us get a better idea of how the website is used so we can be proactive in making it better/easier for you to use. Some of this information is collected using cookies. This type of information is not used to identify you.
Noble Naturals utilizes a telephone system which has a function of recording phone calls for training and monitoring purposes in accordance with our call recording policy.
Other personal information we collect might be given to us by third parties. Most all of the information we collect is directly from you, however, sometimes we may get your information from other sources such as publicly available material. We use this information to supplement the data we already hold about you in order to serve you better or validate the info you have given.
Where personal data has been collected we only use it in the following ways:
- To open and maintain a trade/practitioner account with you,
- In accordance with a legal obligation, or
- Where we have your consent.

For internal record keeping. Such as keeping notes of what products are good sellers for you in your area, keeping up with our correspondence, invoicing, etc.
To improve our website.
To market to you. In addition to sending you our newsletters we may use your personal data to display targeted ads (not that we do very much of that right now) online – through our own website or through third party sites and their platforms.
To protect (you and us). To detect and prevent any fraudulent or malicious activity and make sure everyone uses our website and services fairly.

Security of your personal data
We do not give out personal information and prior to discussing your personal data with you we may occasionally request proof of identity before doing so.
If you have been granted access to the members area on our website It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer. If you have any reason to believe that your password may have been accessed by a third party, please contact us as soon as possible and we will take steps to reset that password.
The length of time we keep your personal data depends on what it is and whether we have an ongoing business need to retain it – for example, to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements or until a debt is paid.
We will retain your personal data for as long as we have a relationship with you and for a period of 5 years afterwards where we have an ongoing business need to retain it.
