Where we get your personal data from

We obtain your personal data from the following sources:

  • Via automated technologies, such as cookies, server logs and other similar technologies. We may automatically collect information technology data (as listed above) about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns by using cookies, server logs and other similar technologies. We may also receive information technology data about you if you visit other websites employing our cookies. Please see our cookie section below for further details; and
  • From someone else, such as: analytics providers (such as Google Analytics or similar); advertising networks; providers of technical, payment and delivery services (such as Shopify); providers of social media platforms (such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) for example where you share our content through social media, for example by liking us on Facebook, following or tweeting about us on Twitter.


How we use personal data

We must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. This may be because our processing of personal data is necessary in order to perform our contractual obligations to you (e.g. to fulfil orders you make), to comply with our legal obligations, for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the pursuit of our legitimate interests. In certain circumstances we will ask for your consent to allow us to process your personal data (e.g. for marketing purposes or where we process personal data as a result of cookies or other similar technologies we use). Your personal data may be used for one of the following purposes:

  • Providing and managing your account and orders
  • Supplying our products and/or services to you
  • Personalising and tailoring our products and/or services for you
  • Improving our Website and our customer offering
  • Communicating with you
  • Marketing by email, phone, text message, post, offers, news promotions and other activities

Where we ask for your consent you will always have the opportunity to opt out.


Who we share your personal data with

We may disclose your personal data to:

  • our group companies and affiliates or third party data processers who may process data on our behalf to enable us to carry out our usual business practices. Any such disclosure will only be so that we can process your personal data for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice. For example, we use Shopify to process your personal data in connection with the purchases you make via our Website and you can read more about their security practices here:;
  • HMRC, legal and other regulators or authorities, including those who request your personal data or to report any potential or actual breach of applicable law or regulation;
  • law enforcement agencies, courts or other relevant party, to the extent necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal rights;
  • third parties where necessary for the purposes of prevention, investigation, detection or prosecution of criminal offences or the execution of criminal penalties;
  • third parties operating plugins or content (such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) on our website which you choose to interact with.


International transfers of your personal data

It is possible that personal data we collect from you may be transferred, stored and/or processed outside of the UK.

In connection with such transfers we will ensure that:

  • there are appropriate safeguards in place such as binding corporate rules or the approved model contractual clauses between us and the recipient (as per Article 46 GDPR (or English law equivalent)). A copy of the appropriate safeguard can be obtained by contacting us using the contact details set out below;
  • the transfer is to a country that the UK has decided provides an adequate level of protection (as per Article 45 GDPR (or English law equivalent)); or
  • one of the derogations for specific situations in the first sub-paragraph of Article 49(1) GDPR (or English law equivalent) applies to the transfer including explicit consent or necessary for the performance of a contract or exercise or defence of legal claims.


Storing your personal data

We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary. We keep the length of time that we hold your personal data for under review. These reviews take place annually.


Contractual requirements on you to provide personal data

In certain circumstances the provision of personal data by you is a requirement to comply with the law or a contract, or necessary to enter into a contract.

It is your choice as to whether you provide us with your personal data necessary to enter into a contract or as part of a contractual requirement. If you do not provide your personal data then the consequences of failing to provide your personal data are that we may not be able to perform to the level you expect under our contract with you. An example of this would be where we are unable to provide you with certain products or services as we do not have your full details, or where we cannot perform our contract with you at all because we rely on the personal data you provide in order to do so. Please see our terms and conditions on our Website for further details.


Your rights

By law and in certain circumstances, you may have a number of rights in relation to your personal data, which we will always work to uphold:

  • The right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal data. This Privacy Notice should tell you everything you need to know, but you can always contact us to find out more or to ask any questions.
  • The right to access the personal data we hold about you.
