Privacy Policy & GDPR

Run Charlie’s Commitment to GDPR

At Run Charlie Ltd, we have always maintained our users' right to data privacy. We recognise that the GDPR will help all businesses move towards the highest standards of operations in protecting customer data and we fully embrace this move. All system designs through our software provider Cloud Commerce Pro are now considered for compliance with both the letter and the spirit of the GDPR regulation.

What data is passed to Cloud Commerce Pro from selling channels such as Amazon, eBay or Run Charlie Website?

When a sale happens on a channel we download the buyer contact details (which includes name, address, provided telephone numbers and email address), the delivery address, contact details and details of the order and subsequent payment amount. We do not handle credit or debit card information and are not party to any data that would expose the buyer to any financial risk.

Does Run Charlie or Cloud Commerce Pro store sensitive data?

No, sale data does not contain any sensitive data such as personal information about buyers.

Does Run Charlie or Cloud Commerce Pro pass customers data to 3rd parties?

We share delivery information with 3rd parties such as couriers and accounting services only for the purpose of processing an order through the system and obtaining shipping labels. We never share information for marketing purposes on our behalf. We do not use any third-party marketing services.

Does Run Charlie and Cloud Commerce Pro keep records of processing?

We maintain the data for the order and accounts transactions for at least 6 years due to our legal obligation for H.M.R.C. record keeping. The data is removed for address labels after three weeks to allow for Run Charlie to reprint labels. Run Charlie can regenerate a new label after this time for order processing purposes only.

Run Charlie and Cloud Commerce Pro’s Breach of Data Policy

In line with GDPR we have a duty to report a data breach to the regulator as soon as we are aware of it. The regulator in the U.K. where the head office of Cloud Commerce Pro Ltd is based, is the Information Commissions Office. https://ico.org.uk/

How does Run Charlie and Cloud Commerce Pro store data?

Wherever possible we encrypt data with secret keys and take all reasonable steps to ensure data access is kept to a minimum.

Does Run Charlie and Cloud Commerce Pro review our processes?

We have always constantly reviewed our processes and take regular opportunities to adopt new best practices. We believe that our obligations to meet GDPR regulations for storage and processing of our customers and user data was already met by Cloud Commerce Pro’s internal policies that pre-date GDPR. We keep this under review.

Does Run Charlie and Cloud Commerce Pro store special category data or financial data?


Does Run Charlie and Cloud Commerce Pro allow data to be used for email marketing?

No. We do not allow user data to be used for email marketing purposes. If we were to use email marketing through services like Mailchimp in the future, it would only be with the recipient’s explicit permission which would not be gained via a third party on your behalf.

Where does Run Charlie and Cloud Commerce Pro store data?

We store all data in our partner’s highly secure data centres in Glasgow and London. Our partner Iomart is one of Europe’s leading data centre specialists and you can read their GDPR information here https://www.iomart.com/secure/data-protection/
