Who are 'we'?
When we talk about "we", we mean ZUCO Coffee Roasters. We are based in Hong Kong.
What is 'personal data'?
Personal data is any data that could directly or indirectly identify you – this includes information like your name, address, telephone number and your email address but in some cases it may include less obviously identifying information, like your IP Address (see below).
What data do we collect?
When visit zucocoffee.com we collect information about you and your use of our website. We treat this information as falling into three categories: Customer Information, Usage Data and your IP Address.
Customer Information is the information you explicitly provide to us when you make an online purchase or sign up to receive our newsletters, including your:
- Email address
- Shipping and/or billing address
- Payment information (When purchasing from ZUCO Coffee Roasters your payment details are passed through a secure server using the latest 256-bit SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption technology. 256-bit SSL encryption is the current industry standard.)
Usage Data is general information about how you interact with our website, such as:
- which pages you visited on our website
- how you came to the website (for example, by clicking on a link in a newsletter or from an advertisement)
- which buttons or links you clicked
- whether you have been to the website before
Your IP address is the public network address associated with your computer. Whenever you visit a website (including ours), the computer from which the web pages are served (i.e. our web server) needs to know your computer’s public network address so it can send the requested pages to your browser. Your IP address is automatically sent each time you access any Internet website. From a computer’s IP Address, it is usually possible to determine the general geographic location of that computer but often not the specific computer and if multiple people use the computer not the specific user (although if your IP Address is unique to you and is published somewhere or if you later identify yourself while while using the same IP Address, it is possible that IP Address could identify you). In the European Union, your IP Address is considered to be personal data, and we treat it accordingly.
How we collect data
Information you provide to us directly: When you shop with us online or over the phone we will ask you to provide personal data (such as your name and address) so we can fill and ship your order. We may also ask you to provide personal data when you shop with us at our factory, workshop or event, sign up for a newsletter, join us on social media, take part in surveys or contact us for help.
