What personal data do we collect/store?
The information we collect from our clients helps us to personalize and continually improve your experience with us.
Below are the types of information we collect:
Information supplied by you: We collect and store information which you give us when creating an account or making a purchase such as your username, password, email address, name, surname, physical/shipping addresses and telephone numbers.
We do NOT store any of your credit/debit card information on our site as all payments are handled by 3rd parties such as PayFast, Zapper and by your bank in the case of EFT and direct bank transfers.
You can choose not to provide certain details to us but then you may not be able to take advantage of certain features we use when creating targeted marketing campaigns and birthday specials etc.
E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from B&B if your computer supports such capabilities.
If you do not want to receive any e-mails from us, please adjust your Customer Communication Preferences.

How secure is your data?
At the Boar & Badger, we understand how important online security is to you so we’ve done everything possible to make sure our site is safe and secure whilst you shop by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software which encrypts all the information you input.
In the case of a data breach, The Boar & Badger will contact all affected parties/customers immediately upon detection of such a breach to try and minimize/stop any malicious activity which may occur as a result of a breach.
It is important that you also practice good internet safety by correctly logging off from any shared computers you’ve used whilst making any online purchases so that your personal/banking details don’t fall into the wrong hands.
Does The Boar & Badger share any client data with 3rd parties?
Rest assured that The Boar & Badger will NEVER sell your personal data to any 3rd party under any circumstances.
While we always check outgoing products for damage before shipping, things may still be damaged in transit. If you receive any damaged goods from us, we will do our utmost to arrange a replacement as soon as possible with no extra cost to yourself.
