When we talk about "personal data" in this policy, we mean any information which could be used to identify you, either directly or indirectly, for example in combination with any other information we may hold about you.
In certain situations, another company within the Mulberry group of companies (“Mulberry Group”) may be the data controller, such as the Mulberry company in the territory in which you live, or a parent, subsidiary or sister company which carries out a specific role for Mulberry Japan. The same policy shall apply to any other company within the Mulberry Group which may collect, control or process your data.
We take security of your personal data seriously in accordance with Japanese Act on the Protection of Personal Information, and if applicable, comply with the General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”) of UK and EU.

When you interact with us, or use any of our pages on social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, Google+, Line, Weibo and WeChat, we may collect information about you which could include personal data, for example, when you "Like" a post on our Facebook page, or "Follow" us on Twitter. Those social media sites will also have their own privacy policies explaining how they use and share your personal data. You should carefully review those privacy policies before you use social media sites, to make sure that you are happy with them.
Reasons for collecting personal data

Sharing of personal data
Receiving contact from Mulberry & changing contact preferences
From time to time, we will send you aftercare e-mails relating to your Mulberry product.
Where you have consented, we will also send you e-mails with information in relation to any products which are similar to your Mulberry product, and which we think you might like.
When you sign up to one of our 'waitlists' for a Mulberry product that is not yet available, we will send you an e-mail to let you know when that product becomes available, but we will not send you any marketing communications as a result of this subscription.
We will only send you e-mails with information in relation to any other products, special offers or competitions, if you have agreed that we can (sometimes referred to as an "opt-in"). You can sign up to receive communications by e-mail, by post, by text/SMS or by telephone call about our new collections, exclusive online offers and events.
We will also only share your personal data with third parties (including companies in the Mulberry Group) for them to send you marketing e-mails or communications, if you have agreed that we can send you such communications.
In any case, you can ask us to change your communications preferences or to stop contacting you at any time, by contacting us on email@example.com, or by calling us on + 81 0120-097-428, or by using the unsubscribe option in each e-mail, or via your online Mulberry account “My Mulberry”.
