Collection and Use We may collect, and you may provide, personal information to Saison for a variety of reasons which we will disclose to you, including to purchase products; to receive direct marketing information from Saison; to enter competitions; to facilitate our relationship with you by email and through our website; and to report to you and deal with your complaints or returns. We collect information that is reasonably necessary for facilitating our relationship and providing you with our services. If you do not provide your personal information, we will not be able to provide you with these services. When you provide personal information, such as your name, address, mobile number, email address, and credit card information, you consent to Saison using or disclosing your personal information for the purpose specified to you at the time of collection or for another purposes if: you would reasonably expect us to use or disclose such information for that other purpose (for example, you would reasonably expect us to disclose your contact details to our freight agents if we have to deliver products to service providers we use to manage our online business such as: our credit card service provider, Pin Payments. That other purpose is related to the purpose specified to you at the time of collection (for example, we would need to disclose your credit card details to a bank to credit your account in the case of a refund, we will need to disclose your email address to the company that manages our newsletter subscription services to you, MailChimp); or where we are permitted or required by law, or it is in the public interest to do so, or it is in the interests of public safety to do so. You may use a pseudonym when you deal with us unless it is impractical. For example, if your pseudonym does not match your credit card details, or you give a false name and the freight company will not deliver to you, we will not be able to complete your purchase. We will not collect your information from a third party unless you have consented, or it may be implied that you consented to the collection at the time.
