Do we share any data?

MIKE AIKEN and MIKE AIKEN MUSIC will never sell your personal data. However, we do have to share certain aspects of it in order to deliver our service. These are:

  • When you complete the checkout form and are taken to our external payment partner (Paypal), your information such as name, e-mail, address, and phone number are passed automatically to them in order for you to complete the transaction. This saves you having to enter the information twice.

In these situations, your data is subject to these external company’s privacy policies, which can be found here:


How long do we hold your data for?

Our goal is to only hold your data for as long as we need it to complete orders, and be able and prepared for returns etc. We regularly go through and remove completed order information and customer data for the purpose of not holding your data any longer than we have to. It’s difficult to specify an exact time, as each order is different, but we aim to remove all old data within 12 months of the order.
