This privacy policy will inform you as to how we look after your personal data when you visit our website (regardless of where you visit it from) and tell you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.


We hope the following sections will answer any questions you have but if not, please do get in touch with us.

Our products and services are aimed at those aged 16 and over.

The information we collect and how we use it

When orders are placed with us, we need to ask for information such as your name, e-mail address, phone number and credit and debit card details. A contact telephone number or email address allows us to contact you should there be a problem with your order. All this information is required to process your request or notify you of acceptance of your order.

How and why do we use your personal data

We want to give you the best possible customer experience. One way to achieve that is to get the richest picture we can of who you are by combining the data we have about you.

We then use this to offer you promotions, products and services that are most likely to interest you. The data privacy law allows this as part of our legitimate interest in understanding our customers and providing the highest levels of service. We may use your data for any of the following reasons:

To fulfil your order and maintain your online account.

To manage and respond to any queries or complaints to our customer service team.

To personalise the Site to you and show you content we think you will be most interested in, based on your account information, your purchase history and your browsing activity.

To improve and maintain the Site, and monitor its usage.

For market research, e.g. we may contact you for feedback about our products.

To send you marketing messages and show you targeted advertising, where we have your consent or are otherwise permitted to do so.

For security purposes, to investigate fraud and where necessary to protect ourselves and third parties.

To comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.


Of course, if you wish to change how we use your data, you can do so at any time.

Remember, if you choose not to share your personal data with us, or refuse certain contact permissions, we might not be able to provide some services you’ve asked for.

Marketing

We love to keep in touch with our customers, depending on your marketing preferences, we may use your personal data to send you marketing messages by email, phone or post.
