Privacy Policy

Here at Brightkidz Educational Toys we are committed to protecting your personal data and privacy. This section informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information that we receive from users of the site.

Collection and use of personal data for user accounts and orders
When you make an account with us you will be asked for personal data such as name, address, telephone number and email address. This data will be stored so that every time you need to make an order you will not have to retype your details. By choosing to set up an educator’s account rather than an individual’s account you will be asked for extra details such as your teachers registration number and present or previous workplace (name of school, kindergarten or educational establishment). Educator’s are entitled to educator’s discounts on certain educational products. Brightkidz Educational Toys reserve the right to check that these details are correct. You must provide true, accurate and complete information about yourself where required and ensure that this information is kept up to date.
Once you have completed your account set up you will have a user name which will be your email address and your chosen password. As you will be fully responsible for all activities which occur under your username and password you must make sure that you keep them confidential and in a secure place and they must not be disclosed to anyone. Any unauthorized use or breach of security must be reported to us as soon as you are aware of it.
You will also have the choice to make an order without an account in place by clicking on Quick Checkout. Here you will be asked to give us the necessary data in order for us to process the order and comply with our legal obligations.
We may keep your details for a reasonable period afterwards in order to fulfil any contractual obligations such as refunds, guarantees and so on.
Payment can be made either through your Paypal account or you can choose to pay on delivery to your nearest Akis Express branch.
In order to create an account or make an order you must be at least eighteen years old or a minor with consent from a parent or guardian.

How we store your data
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information

Who we may share your personal data with
We sometimes share your personal data with trusted third parties in order to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might be reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests. For example, your data may need to be passed on to delivery couriers, web developers, to handle complaints and so on.
