This Policy applies only to your use of our Site. Our Site may contain links to other websites. We have no control over how your data is collected, stored or used by other websites and we advise you to check the privacy policies of any such websites before providing any data to them.

4. What is personal data?

Personal data is defined by the GDPR as "any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier”.

Personal data is, therefore, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it can also cover less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.

5. What are your rights?

Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:

a)    the right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal data;
b)    the right to access the personal data we hold about you;
c)    the right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete;
d)    the right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data we have;
e)    the right to prevent the processing of your personal data;
f)    the right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes;
g)    the right to data portability; and
h)    rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. However, we do not use your personal data in this way.

Information about your rights can be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.

If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.

6. What data do we collect?

Depending upon your use of our Site, we may collect some or all of the following personal information:

  • your name;
  • your gender;
  • your postal address;
  • your email address;
  • your contact telephone number(s);
  • payment information such as your payment card’s number, expiry date and registered address;
  • your IP address;
  • your web browser type and version;
  • the operating system of the device you use to visit our Site; and
  • a list of URLs starting with a referring site, your activity on our Site, and the site you exit to.

7. How do we use your personal data?

Under the GDPR, we must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. This may be because the data is necessary for our performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to our use of your personal data, or because it is in our legitimate business interests to use it. Your personal data may be used for the following purposes:

  • providing and managing your access to our Site;
  • personalising and tailoring your experience on our Site;
  • supplying our products and services to you (your personal details are required in order for us to enter into a contract with you);
  • communicating with you (for example, responding to emails or calls from you);
  • supplying you with information by email and post that you have opted-in to; and
  • analysing your use of our Site to enable us to continually improve our Site and your user experience.

With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email and post with information, news and offers on our products and services. You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam.

8. How long will we keep your personal data?

We retain your data to provide you with a high quality and consistent service. We always retain information in accordance with the law and we never retain your information for longer than is necessary.
9. How and where do we store or transfer your personal data?

We will only store or transfer your personal data within the EEA. This means it will be fully protected under the GDPR or to equivalent standards by law.

10. Do we share your personal data?

We may sometimes contract with third parties to supply certain products or services. These may include payment processing, delivery and marketing. In some cases, those third parties may require access to some or all of your personal data that we hold.

If any of your personal data is required by a third party, as described above, we will take steps to ensure your personal data is handled safely, securely and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the third party’s obligations under the law.

If any personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, we will take suitable steps to ensure your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and EEA, and under the GDPR.

In some circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order or the instructions of a government authority.

11. Can you withhold information?

You may access certain areas of our Site without providing any personal data at all. However, to use all features and functions available on our Site, you may be required to submit or allow for the collection of certain data.

12. How can you access your personal data?

If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a "subject access request”.

All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the postal address set out in section 14. There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. However, if your request is "manifestly unfounded or excessive” (for example, if you make repeated requests) we may charge a fee to cover our administrative costs in responding.

Normally, we will respond to your subject access request within one month of receiving it. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request (or your payment, if applicable).
