Information That We Collect

To provide a quality service for you we require basic details about you and contact information to help us with administering your appointments.  We will also collect information about your purchases, products used in the salon and consultations by our stylists.

We may with your explicit permission use this for marketing purposes; we do not and will not pass your information to any other 3rd party to be used for marketing purposes.  Only with your explicit permission and only when we receive an online order from you for The Fantastic Hairdresser will we pass your details to them to facilitate the processing and delivery of your items.

About Us

At Eds we have and always will take our responsibilities seriously and have many measures in place to ensure your information is securely held and only used for the purposes for which it has been collected.  All our data is security encrypted and held within the UK and the EEA.  

We have taken steps to ensure that our business partners (suppliers) are also GDPR compliant; namely these are:

  • Jelly Software (our salon systems software provider)
  • Shopify (for our website and online shopping)
  • Facebook, Instgram and Twitter (social media platforms)
  • Schwarzkopf Professional
  • The Fantastic Hairdresser (online orders only)
  • Salon CCTV
  • British Telecom (for our email servers)
  • Mailchimp (for our newsletters)
  • EE (for our sms communications)
  • Team Knowhow and Dropbox (for our backup systems)
  • Dzinr (our website developers)
  • Accounts Direct (our company accountants)

We will not publish anything about you on our social media without your explicit consent to do so.  Your details will only be stored on our platform with Shopify following an online transaction by you.  We may at your request share your information with Schwarzkopf Professional and/or The Fantastic Hairdresser when initiated first by you, e.g. you purchase an item from our website, you become a fan of Eds and the Fantastic Hairdresser.
