Where we store your personal data
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the United Kingdom and the European Economic Area (“EEA”). We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that any personal data transferred outside the UK or the EEA is treated securely and in accordance with the applicable data protection laws.
We store all information about you on secure servers.
Where you have created a password to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone you don’t trust to access your account.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site. Any transmission is at your own risk, but please be assured that we use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Legal basis to process your personal data
Under the applicable data protection laws (GDPR) we need a lawful basis to collect and use your personal data. The law allows for six lawful bases to process people’s personal data, and one of them allows personal data to be legally collected and used if it is necessary for a legitimate interest of the organisation – as long as it is fair, balanced, and does not unduly impact the rights of individuals.
We have assessed our business interests in carrying out our activities, and have carefully considered the impact that our collection and use of personal data could potentially have on individuals’ rights.
Our databases contain data which is used to entertain and inform you, and such activities are unlikely to affect your fundamental rights and freedoms. We have therefore concluded that the most appropriate lawful ground for the processing of your personal data is our legitimate interests.
In the event you request any products and/or services from us, we will also have a contractual obligation to provide those products and/or services to you – giving us another legal basis to process your personal data.
In certain circumstances (particularly to let you know about our products, services, and promotions), we may also rely on a specific consent provided by you for the processing of your personal data.
Finally, there may also be times when we are required to process your personal data by law – but these are rare, and almost definitely won’t apply if you only use our website for its intended purposes.
You have the right to object to this processing if you wish. If you do, we will remove your data from all our systems immediately and cease all communication with you. If you wish to make that happen just send us a message using the details or the contact form here.
Uses made of your information
We process personal information for certain legitimate business purposes, which include some or all of the following:
- to update our records;
- to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us;
- to allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so;
- to notify you about any changes to our service;
- to identify and prevent fraud;
- to enhance the security of our network and information systems;

- to communicate with you about offers, products, services and other information that we believe you could be interested in;
- to determine the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns and marketing;
- to enhance, modify, personalise, or otherwise improve our services/communications for the benefit of you and our customers.
Whenever we process data we will ensure that we always keep your personal data rights in high regard, and take full account of these rights.
When contacting you for the above purposes we may do so by phone, post, email, or other electronic means, unless you tell us otherwise.
Unless required by law, none of your personal details will ever be passed to any third parties, nor shared with companies or people outside of Epic Tales and our associated businesses.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as we believe it is up-to-date. We verify our data periodically, and if we learn that you are no longer receiving our messages or using our online services, we will remove your data from our records.
If you want us to remove your data from our records, we will do so immediately. All you have to do is ask. You can do so by sending us a message using the details or the contact form here.
You have the right to:
- request to see the personal data we hold about you. This includes the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not we process any of your personal data. The law allows us to charge you for providing this option, but for all reasonable requests we should not need to do so;
- request that we correct any inaccuracies in the personal data that we hold on you;
- request to have your personally identifiable data deleted from our database;
- request to stop receiving communications from us;
- request that we do not process your personal data for marketing purposes;
- object to our processing of your personal data if we are relying on legitimate interest as the lawful ground for processing.
