Privacy Policy


The Embroiderers' Guild respects the privacy of every individual who visits our websites. The purpose of our Privacy Policy is to outline the information The Embroiderers' Guild may collect and how we may use that information.

As technology continues to develop, our privacy policy may need changing in order to provide the best possible service to our site visitors. We would recommend you to check and make sure that you have read our most recent policy statement when you visit one of our websites.

The Embroiderers' Guild only collects personally identifiable information about you (i.e. your name, address etc.) either when voluntarily submitted by you, the visitor, or as a subscriber or member.

The Embroiderers' Guild may use the information provided by you (together with other information we hold or obtain) to send you information and offers about our goods and/or services which we believe may be of interest to you. This may involve contacting you by post, email or telephone.

We do not give or sell personal information about you to third parties.

We also offer you an "opt-out" option at any time should you wish to cease receiving e-mails or other information from us.

The Embroiderers' Guild's website may contain links to other sites and whilst we make every effort to only link to sites that share our standards, we cannot be held responsible for the contents and privacy policies of such sites.

Security measures are set out by the Information Commissioner and the Embroiderers' Guild has put these in place to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of the information received from our online visitors, and to make such information as secure as possible against unauthorised access and use. This includes only allowing Embroiderers' Guild staff and elected group/branch officers access to the data. Elected Officers are, however, restricted as to whom they can view and are limited to the members in their own region or branch/group.

Our server logs collect technical information automatically when you connect to any page of our site which is not personally identifiable. An example of this would include the type of Internet Browser or the type of computer operating system you are using or the domain name of the website from which you linked to our site. It also records your IP address. This information is not classed as cookies.
