You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting Candy Plum. Please note that if we remove your personal information from our databases, any online account which you have created will be cancelled.

We may disclose your data to third parties in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your data to the prospective seller or buyer. If we or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, data we hold about you will be one of the transferred assets.
We may disclose your data to third party payment service providers from time to time engaged by us or any group of companies from time to time in order to process any payment transactions made over this website.
