If you are under 16 please obtain the consent of your parent or legal guardian before you pass any of your personal information to us. Your parents or legal guardian should then send us their consent by email, although we may need to call them to verify that consent.

It is the ultimate responsibility of parents or legal guardians to supervise children under 16 when they are online and it is recommended that parental control tools should be put in place.

No information collected from anyone under 18 shall be used for any marketing or promotional purposes.

Nor is anyone under the age of 18 allowed to enter into any competitions offered by any Run-Fast company, unless their parents or legal guardian provide prior written permission, sent by email or post direct to Run-Fast. 

Does Run-Fast monitor your use of our website?

Yes. At times we collect non-personal information about your use of our website via the use of ‘cookies’ which are small text files placed and stored on your computer’s hard drive through your web browser to collect website visitor and user behaviour information. Most major websites employ the use of ‘cookies’. This process allows us to track and monitor how often someone visits our site and what aspects of it may most interest them. This then enables us to improve our website in order to enhance your experience as a customer and to improve the service that we provide to you. However, at no point throughout this process do we retrieve the personal information of visitors to our site, since the information that is collected by use of ‘cookies’ cannot identify you. You are able to visit our website and browse anonymously by modifying the cookies on your browser. However, if the cookies are disabled you will not be able to purchase anything, open an account, enter a competition, receive notifications and newsletters etc.

When, if ever, does Run-Fast disclose your personal information?

In certain circumstances, Run-Fast may be obliged by law to reveal your personal information to the police or any other regulatory or government body or a court of law for the purpose of assisting investigations into suspected illegal activities.

When we process your order, we are also obliged to send the personal information and financial details you have provided to a third party, namely the card payment service company. This is done solely to allow for your payment to be processed prior to despatch of your chosen items. At times we may also need to use your financial information, address and other personal information to verify you as the cardholder.

There may also be certain circumstances in which we may need to confirm or share your personal information with other third parties such as a manufacturer, for instance in the event of a recall of a product line, the return of a faulty product to a manufacturer or to an agent who is assisting in the organisation of a competition, amongst others. However, we will never do so without first obtaining your permission. 

How will your personal information be stored by Run-Fast?

Your personal information will be kept on a secure server.

We confirm that Run-Fast will comply in full with all applicable and current English data protection and consumer legislation.

We also confirm that any personal information you provide to Run-Fast from which you can be identified will be held in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and we will endeavour to ensure that the personal information we obtain and use will always be held, used, transferred and otherwise processed in accordance with our legal obligations. 

How long will Run-Fast keep your personal information?

Run-Fast will keep your personal information only for as long as is necessary in order for us to provide you with products and/or services, to fulfil a legitimate business need or where otherwise required by law. 

Can you amend the personal information you have provided to Run-Fast?

Yes - you can log in to your Run-Fast account at any time and amend your personal information, such as your address. 

Links to other websites

Our website may provide links to other websites or resources which may be of interest to you. However, since these websites are run by third parties they may operate under different privacy practices or none at all. We have no control over the privacy polices of third parties, or indeed their use or disclosure of your personal information. Consequently, we cannot be held liable for any breaches of your privacy by others and we make no guarantees with regard to any third party websites. 

Can I make a complaint?

You can make a complaint regarding any issue associated with Run-Fast keeping or using your personal information. Please inform us direct by email at contact@run-fast.net so that we have an opportunity to try and address the problem. However, you also have the right to submit your complaint to the Information Commissioner. 

SECURITY

Your information is kept on a secure server. Our website also uses the latest encryption technology (SSL) methods to ensure your personal and financial information is kept safe and secure. One easy indication of this is apparent when you move to the Checkout where the webpage URL changes from http:// to https://. The insertion of ‘s’ confirms you have reached the secure part of our website. Your card number will also be encrypted when transmitted over the internet to help protect you in the unlikely event that your information is intercepted by a third party. 

We will take all reasonable care to ensure your details are kept secure. However, in the absence of negligence by Run-Fast we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer in the event that a third party obtains unauthorised access to any information you provide when using our website.
