This information is likely to include your name, date of birth, contact details, address, email address, payment details, information about your order and any additional information we may need to help meet your specific requirements, to manage your accounts, and to provide the products you have ordered.

If you do not provide us with the information set out in this paragraph, then we may not be able to provide you with the products you have ordered.

Legitimate Interest

We want to give you the best possible customer experience whilst respecting your privacy.

We may use your name and contact details to tell you about our own products and services which we think may be of interest to you. You can ask us to stop doing so at any time, including by by following the unsubscribe links within any marketing communication sent to you or by contacting us as set out in this Notice. Where you do so we may still continue to communicate with you on other grounds, such as to provide you with our services.

In particular, when you open an account with us you will be asked to indicate your preferences for receiving direct marketing communications from use via email.

We may also use some of your personal information to administer the provision of our services for statistical purposes when we evaluate our range of services. 

We may share your email address with our technology providers including Google, Facebook and others (acting as data processors) for them to use on our behalf in connection with the creation of marketing and promotion for us.

They may use this to serve targeted advertising/content to you via their platforms. You can control what advertisements you receive via the privacy settings on the relevant platform. We also provide tracking opt-out links in our Cookie Policy.

Google and Facebook may also use socio-demographic information about you to identify other people like you, with similar interests to present our marketing to. This socio-demographic information is not used for any other purpose nor shared with any other party.  No information about other individuals identified from these networks is shared with us at any time.

We may also share your details with third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy notice.

Data privacy law allows these uses as part of our legitimate interest in understanding our customers, marketing our services to them, helping us to provide them with the highest levels of service, providing continuity of service  and provided that this does not override your own interests and fundamental rights.

We may from time to time engage third party service providers, to help us manage efficient systems and processes such as hosting and IT services. Some of these systems may for operational reasons be located in countries overseas including Europe and the USA.

We will only transfer your information to service providers who help manage/administer our systems, or overseas, where we are satisfied that this is lawful and that adequate levels of protection are in place to protect the integrity and security of any information being processed and in compliance with applicable privacy laws.

If we transfer your personal data to service providers outside the United Kingdom then we will always use a lawful method to do so. In the case of transfers to other countries outside the European Economic Area then this will be an agreement in a legally approved form.
