How we obtain your personal data
Information provided by you

We undertake at all times to protect your personal data in a manner which is consistent with the requirements of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (where payments are taken by credit/debit card) concerning data protection. We will also take reasonable security measures to protect your personal data in storage.
Do we use your personal data for marketing purposes?
Yes. Any information that you choose to give us may be used for marketing purposes, if you have given your consent, including sending special offers, newsletters and other information relevant to Qudo Baby products and support.
What’s the legal basis for handling my information? The law states that we must have a legitimate purpose for capturing your order information. The information we record is recorded for the following purposes:
- Processing a sales transaction (this includes online orders, telephone orders and requests for product samples)
- Providing product support (such as reporting faulty products, or problems which may arise during use)
