Cookies

We use cookies as part of our website experience. You can read more about our cookie policy here. You can set your browser to reject some or all cookies. However, if you disable the use of cookies, parts of our website may fail to work correctly.

International transfers

Some of your personal data may be transferred outside of the EEA to third parties as described in “How we collect and share data”.

According to UK tax law requirements, we must keep certain information about our customers (for example, identity, contact and transaction data) for six years after your last purchase.

In some cases we may make your personal data anonymous so it cannot be used to identify you, and use it for statistical needs. Such information may be retained and used permanently without informing you.

Data security

We have taken all reasonable steps to ensure the security of your personal data and to minimise the risk of accidental loss, access or use in an unauthorised manner. This includes site-wide SSL/TLS encryption. In the case of employees, agents and third parties, personal data is only shared on a need-to-know basis, and all parties are bound by a duty of confidentiality with strict instructions.

In case of a suspected breach of personal data, you will be notified via our website. We will also notify regulators where we are legally obliged to do so.

  • Request erasure (we may be able to delete any data we hold about you)

  • Right to withdraw consent/object to processing (we may be able to stop using data we hold about you, but this may impact the ability to offer our products and services to you)

Please contact us if you would like to utilise any of these rights. You will not have to pay a fee unless we believe the request is excessive, unfounded or repetitive. We reserve the right to decline your request or charge a reasonable fee for these reasons, or if we are bound by law to not enact your request.

In some cases, for security purposes, we may need additional identifiable information from you to confirm who you are and make sure no unauthorised parties are requesting access.

We will attempt to respond to legitimate requests within 30 days, although in some cases it may take longer due to resource restrictions or the overall complexity of the request.
