Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This includes information submitted voluntarily by you through a form or gathered automatically as you visit this website.

Information collected
We collect information about you for 2 reasons: firstly, to process your order and second, to provide you with the best possible service.

This includes:

• your name
• your address
• your delivery address
• email address
• telephone number (optional)
• log-in password (for customer account holders only)
• order history (date and time of order, payment method and amount, the type of device used (mobile, tablet or desktop), delivery method, products ordered, whether you ordered as a new customer, a returning one or a guest)
• the number of reward points earned (for customer account holders only)
• IP address, its host name and its country location
• any activity on the order, such as the date and time the order was despatched

Please note: No payment information, such as credit card numbers, is ever seen or stored within our site. This information is handled separately by Pay360 or PayPal.

Customer accounts
If you have chosen to create an account you can check the information that we hold simply by logging in. The IP address and the last time they logged in are not shown but we can provide this if you email us. You can change any information stored within the Personal Information section of your account at any time. Data stored within any previous orders remains unchanged if you change your personal information (such as your delivery address) but this can be changed by us if you request it.

Guest checkout
If you have used the guest checkout to order without creating an account you can email us and we'll send you the information we have.

Information sharing
Relevant information will be passed on to Pay360 or PayPal to process your payment and the Royal Mail to deliver your order. If you choose to sign-up for our newsletter we use Mad Mimi to send the emails.

We never sell or share customer details with any other companies.

The right to be forgotten
You can request your account be deleted by emailing us. Please be aware that your details will still remain on any orders placed due to VAT regulations. VAT records must be kept for at least six years from the date of creation in accordance with the VAT Act 1994 and HMRC Notice 700/21 October 2013.

Security
Our website is secured with a 128-bit SSL certificate.

If you choose to pay by credit/debit card the details are taken by Pay360 or PayPal and are never seen by us.

The personal information which we hold will be held securely in accordance with our internal security policy and the law.

Email
We will not email you in the future unless you have given us your consent. If you choose to subscribe to our monthly email newsletter unsubscribe instructions are included in every email or you can contact us and we will remove your email address.
