What data do we collect and why

1.1 To enter contracts with you: Where you place an order with us, we will process your personal data so that we can deliver these goods to you. Our use of personal data in this way includes sharing your personal data with our payment system provider, with our warehouse and with delivery companies. Sometimes, we’ll need to share your details with a third party who is providing a service (such as delivery couriers). We do so to fulfil our contractual commitments to you in connection with sales and returns. Without sharing your personal data, we’d be unable to fulfil your request.

The companies we use for these services are:

  • Sage Pay and Paypal (all credit card details are encrypted)
  • Warehouse
  • Delivery Companies
1.2 To respond to your queries, refund requests and complaints: Handling the information you have sent us enables us to respond to you. We will also keep a record of this information to inform any future communication with us and to demonstrate how we communicated with you.
The legal basis on which we do this are our contractual obligations to you, our legal obligations and our legitimate interests in providing you with the best service, and understanding how we can improve our service and products based on your experience.
1.3 To protect our business and your account from fraud and other illegal activities: This includes using your personal data to maintain, update and safeguard your account.
For example, by checking your delivery addresses to identify potentially fraudulent transactions by third parties (eg if someone were to use your bank card).
1.4 To process payments and to prevent fraudulent transactions.
1.5 To contact you via email, phone or post in relation to your order, for example to advise when an order is shipped or to send a copy of your invoice.
1.6 To send you communications required by law or which are necessary to inform you about our changes to the services we provide you. For example, updates to this Privacy Notice, product recall notices, and legally required information relating to your orders. These service messages will not include any promotional content and do not require prior consent when sent by email or text message.
If we did not use your personal data for these purposes, we would be unable to comply with our legal obligations.
1.7 To administer any of our prize draws or competitions which you enter, based on your consent given at the time of entering.
1.8 To provide products to others: Where you have provided personal data about another person (for example, where you order goods as a gift to be delivered to someone else), we need to process such personal data in order to provide these products to the other person or people. This will include sharing their personal data with delivery companies and other potential subcontractors. We need to process their personal data in this way to be able to provide them with the goods you have ordered for them from us.
The legal basis on which we process their personal data in these circumstances is our legitimate interest to provide the person you have identified and requested with the products you have ordered.
1.9 We will also process personal data for the purposes of making our website more secure, and to administer our website and for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes.
The legal basis on which we process personal data in these circumstances is our legitimate interest to provide you with the best customer experience we can, and to ensure that our website is kept secure.
1.10 If our business is sold: We will transfer your personal data to a third party:
1.2 in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we will disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets (at all times in accordance with all applicable data protection laws)
