Privacy Policy


Barnbrook Fonts and Your Data Rights
May 2018 changes in European data protection law give you more explicit control over what information we collect and how we use it. Please take a moment to look at how we use your data and how we contact you. When you signed up to our website, you were given the option to receive marketing messages from our company. If you gave consent to that at the time and are happy to continue to receive marketing information, you do not need to take any further action.

If you wish to review what data we hold about you, or wish to remove yourself from our mailing list, or website altogether, please continue reading.

1. The Data We Store About You
We store some basic contact information about you. The next paragraph explains the context of data collection, its storage and possible uses.

If you have, at any time:

  • Created an account on our website with the explicit aim of joining our mailing list and receiving our newsletters, periodically.
  • Signed up to our newsletter through one of our social media campaigns.
  • Purchased typographic software through either VirusFonts.com or Barnbrook Fonts websites.

We may hold this information about you:

  • Your email address.
  • A forename and surname that you will have provided.
  • A billing address (if you have purchased typographical software products from us).
  • Your purchase history (if you have purchased typographical software products from us).

2. What We Use This Data For
We will only ever use your data for these purposes:

  • To enable us to support the software products or font licensing that you have purchased, post-sale.
  • To keep you up-to-date on our website’s Terms and Conditions and our Privacy Policy.
  • To bring you more of what interests you in terms of our foundry news or occasional special offers on type software products.

3. Ways to Review and Edit Your Data
You can review your personal information by logging-in to your account here.
You can log out from your session at our website here and then choose ‘Confirm and log out’.
If you no longer want to receive marketing information from Barnbrook Fonts (previously VirusFonts), you can unsubscribe by clicking the ‘Unsubscribe’ link at the footer of every marketing mailer that we send or by sending email to our Support staff, ensuring that you send from the registered email account used to sign up to our marketing information, originally.
If you wish to delete your account entirely (which is an irrevocable step!), please send email from the registered email account you used to sign up with to our Support staff.

4. About Your Financial Data
We never store your financial information. Our payments are processed by Stripe. Stripe will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services that they provide to us. They have their own privacy policy in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. For this provider, we recommend that you read their privacy policy so that you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled.
Stripe’s Privacy Policy may be found here.
Stripe have been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and who are certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification in the payments industry. To attain this level, Stripe make use of best-in-class security tools and practices. Stripe, like all payment gateways, adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, a body jointly administered by the major payment card services companies such as Visa, Mastercard and American Express. PCI-DSS requirements ensure that credit card information is handled securely.
Remember that this provider may be located in, or have facilities that are located in, a different jurisdiction to both you and us. Therefore, if you elect to proceed with a transaction, your information may become subject to the laws of any jurisdiction in which the service provider or its facilities are located.

3. Other Kinds of Data We Use
When you buy from us; as part of the purchasing transaction process, we collect and transmit the information that you give us (such as your email and billing addresses) over HTTPS – a secure, encrypted, connection between website and customer – when logged-in.

4. Analytics and Cookies
We use Google Analytics software to monitor how visitors use our website. This software saves a cookie to your computer’s hard drive to track your usage of the site and to monitor your engagement with different pages, but does not collect, store or save personal information. You can read Google’s privacy policy for further information here.

5. Consent
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, we infer that you consent to our collecting it, to use for that specific purpose only.

5. Disclosure
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so, or if you violate our Terms of Service.

6. Third-Party Services
We use a single third-party provider [Stripe] to process payments. See statement 2. Your Financial Data for more information on what this entails.

6. Security
To protect your personal data, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to ensure that it is not lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed inappropriately. Credit card information that you provide to us is always encrypted by secure socket layer technology during transactions.

7. Age of Consent
By using this site, you confirm that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.

8. Changes to this Privacy Policy
We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it. If our store is acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that we may continue to sell products to you.
