We value your privacy

At Winner Weddings, we value the trust placed us by the users of our website to protect their personal data. Data security is one of our highest priorities and we aim to be as clear as possible about what we do with personal data and why we do it. This Privacy Policy regulates the use by Winner Weddings of the information you provide when using the Winner Weddings website, which is run by Winner Weddings Ltd to provide a platform for wedding businesses to promote their products and services to prospective customers.

Information We Collect

  • To register as a business on our website, we have to collect certain information from you. We use the information given to us by you to provide the service you request from us in the way that is set out in this privacy policy. You can change your registration details easily through the account management portal on the website or you can email us.

  • Business name and password - we collect a company name to enable you to advertise your company. The password is created by you to protect your Winner Weddings account and any data you have stored there.

  • Business location - without this we will be unable to share the location of your business with the people who would like to buy the products and services you are promoting through the Winner Weddings website. Depending on your level of subscription, your business location may be used to display a location map on your advert to share your business location with the people who are interested in your business.

  • Email address - we contact you via email and will forward emails from prospective customers to you

  • Telephone number - We share your business telephone number with the users of the Winner Weddings website so they can contact your business about the products and services you are promoting.

  • PayPal email address - If you decide to upgrade from a Ruby advert, we will take payment via your PayPal email address and store it to enable us to determine which PayPal account is linked with which business.

  • Correspondence - if you contact us we may keep a record of that correspondence.

  • IP addresses - when you visit our site, we will automatically receive your IP address, a unique identifier for your computer or other access device.
