What does this Privacy and Security Policy Cover?

Yipp-eCom Limited respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your Personal Data. We want to be transparent with you about how we collect and use your Personal Data in making available this Yipp-e Website, www.yipp-e.com , (“the Site”) and providing our services.

We want to make sure you know what happens to your Personal Data, what your rights are and how the law protects you.

With that in mind, this Privacy Policy is designed to describe:

  • Who we are and how to contact us.
  • Your rights relating to your Personal Data.
  • Marketing communications preferences.
  • What Personal Data we collect.
  • How we use your Personal Data and why.
  • What happens when you do not provide the necessary Personal Data?
  • Personal Data from Third Party Sources.
  • Who we share your Personal Data with.
  • How we keep your Personal Data secure.
  • How long we store your Personal Data.

The Privacy Policy is intended to meet our duties of Transparency under the “General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR”. The protection of the personal data and the protection of the personal and financial information of our clients are our top priority. That is why we process your information exclusively on the basis of the applicable legislation, in particular REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 (better known as GDPR), the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) and the Electronic Commerce Act (ECA) and Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) as it applies in the UK.

Who we are and how to contact us

Yipp-eCom Limited , a company incorporated and registered in England with company number 12318571 and whose registered office is at 71-75 Shelton Street, London, Greater London, United Kingdom, WC2H 9JQ6. , is the Controller of your Personal Data (referred to in this Privacy Policy as either “Yipp-e”, “We”, “Us” or “Our”). You can contact us directly with any privacy-related queries or complaints on our support email: admin@yipp-e.com

Your rights relating to your Personal Data

Under certain circumstances, by law, you have the right to:

  • Request access to your Personal Data. This enables you to receive a copy of the Personal Data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

  • Request correction of the Personal Data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.

  • Request erasure of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove Personal Data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it, unless the processing is necessary for at least one of the following purposes, namely:

    1. exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
    2. for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by law to which Yipp-e and/or its processors are subject;
    3. for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) in so far as the right to erasure is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing or
    4. establishing, exercising or defending legal claims.
  • Object to processing of your Personal Data. This right exists where we are relying on a Legitimate Interest as the legal basis for our processing and there is something about your particular situation, which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes.

  • Request the restriction of processing of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of Personal Data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.

  • Request the transfer of your Personal Data. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your Personal Data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

How to exercise your rights

If you want to exercise any of the rights described above, please contact us at admin@yipp-e.com. Typically, you will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of the other rights outlined above). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive, or, we may simply refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

What do we need from you?

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of your other rights).

This is a security measure to ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

How long do we typically take to resolve requests?

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.


If you would like to make a complaint regarding this Privacy Policy or our practices in relation to your Personal Data, please contact us: admin@yipp-e.com.

We will reply to your complaint as soon as we can.

If you feel that your complaint has not been adequately resolved, please note that the GDPR gives you the right to contact your local data protection supervisory authority, which for the UK, is the Information Commissioner’s Office. You can contact them by calling 0303 123 1113.

  • Following the “Unsubscribe” links on any marketing message sent to you by Yipp-e or Yipp-e Site; and/or
  • contacting us at any time at enquiries@yipp-e.com

Where you opt-out of receiving these marketing messages, this opt-out will not apply to service-related communications (and any processing of your Personal Data involved in sending such communications).

  • about orders you make using the Yipp-e platform;
  • relating to the management of your account on the Site;
  • about your use of the Site.
  • concerning updates to this Privacy Policy or our Terms & Conditions etc.

What Personal Data we collect

All the Personal Data we collect, both from you and from third parties about you, is outlined in the table below.

The services we provide you with require the processing of your personal data by Yipp-eCom Limited as CONTROLLER, subject to the terms and requirements for the measure for personal data protection under GDPR.

Personal data does not include ‘anonymous data’ (i.e., information where the identity of the individual has been permanently removed).

However, it does include ‘indirect identifiers’ or ‘pseudonymous data’ (i.e., information which alone doesn’t identify an individual but, when combined with certain additional and reasonably accessible information, could be attributed to a particular person).

  • Identity Data

    Your full name, your signature (when you sign for an order or to confirm collection of a return)

  • Contact Data

    Your home address, shipping address, billing address, email address and telephone numbers.

  • Financial Data

    Your bank account and payment card details, including your bank account number, sort code, IBAN, BIC, and bank address. Payment card details will be collected directly by our Payment Processor and we won’t receive them. However, in certain limited cases, we may receive bank account details in the context of administering refunds.

  • Social Media Data

    The profile picture, email address and first and last name associated with your social media profile.

  • Marketing and Communications Data

    Your preferences concerning receiving marketing from us and your communication preferences.

  • Behavioural Data

    Inferred or assumed information relating to your behaviour and interests, based on your online activity. This is typically aggregated and grouped into “segments”

  • Technical Data

    Internet protocol (IP) address, data about log-ins (e.g., the time when a log-in occurs), browser type and version, time zone setting and city-level location (inferred from your IP address), browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this website or use our services.

No Special Categories of Personal Data

We do not collect any “Special Categories of Personal Data” about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

How we use your Personal Data and why

We will only use your Personal Data for the purposes for which we collected it as listed below unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.

If we need to use your Personal Data for an unrelated purpose, we will update this Privacy Policy and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

What is our “legal basis” for processing your Personal Data?

In respect of each of the purposes for which we use your Personal Data, the GDPR requires us to ensure that we have a “legal basis” for that use. Most commonly, we will rely on one of the following legal bases:

  • Where we need to perform a Contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you ('Contractual Necessity').
  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests (“Legitimate Interests”). More detail about the specific legitimate interests pursued in respect of each Purpose we use your Personal Data for is set out in the table below.
  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation (“Compliance with Law”).

We have set out below, the legal bases we rely on in respect of the relevant Purposes for which we use your Personal Data.

  • To provide the Services

    • Why do we do this

      This processing is necessary to perform the contract governing our provision of the Yipp-e services. This includes:

      • Passing your information to Retailers and Delivery providers for them to process and deliver your order.
      • Providing customer support.
      • Setting up and managing your account on the Site.
      • Providing any other elements of the Yipp-e services to you.
    • Our legal basis for this use of data

For example, we may aggregate Technical Data and Behavioural Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific Site feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your Personal Data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as Personal Data that will be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
