We do not share your data with any third parties except as provided in this policy or as required by law. In particular, we will not share information about you with third parties for direct marketing by those third parties without your further consent.

Third party service providers

In order to perform your orders, collect payment, provide you with a service, and market our products to you, we may disclose your data to third parties (such as credit and debit card processing companies, outside suppliers, sub-contractors, distributors and delivery companies) for such purposes.

Business improvement

We may share user experience information or other customer level data with companies within our group as well as our trusted third parties, agents and business partners for the purpose of accomplishing our business improvement objectives. These third parties will only use your data for those purposes and will only have access to the data needed to perform the specific service they are providing.

Administration and legal

We may use and disclose to third parties any information we hold about you and your payment record for the purposes of administration and enforcement of any contract we have with you and related purposes. We may also supply your information to relevant authorities and other third parties where required in connection with any legal process or any legal obligations binding on us.

We may provide aggregate statistics (including information derived from your data) about our sales, traffic patterns, and related website information, to trustworthy third parties, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information.

Business function outsourcing

Where we use third parties to host, provide, operate or supply any part of our website, databases, systems, business, or services, or carry out on our behalf any of our business functions or actions (including sending mail, processing payments, providing marketing assistance, providing customer and advertising analysis, and providing customer services), then then we may provide your personal data to them as required to perform these functions.

Feedback and other interactive parts of our website

Where any facility on our website is clearly designed to make certain of your personal data public (e.g. posts you make to any public forum or reviews facility) then any personal data you provide in that forum or other facility, which is provided in circumstances where it is clear that it is intended to be published, will be disclosed to the public accordingly, subject to moderation by us.

8. How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Data?

We keep your personal data for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes described above, and if longer, for the length of statutory claims limitation periods where your personal data may be relevant to any possible liability we may have to you, or for any duration required by law.

9. Where Do We Store Your Personal Data?

We (and any affiliate, subcontractor or other person processing your personal data on our behalf) may transfer, store and otherwise process your personal data anywhere in the world. Where we disclose your personal data to third parties, that disclosure may also involve a transfer of your personal data anywhere in the world, and those third parties may themselves transfer, store or otherwise process that information anywhere in the world. In each case, we will comply with any legal requirements concerning the transfer of your personal data by us to any third party outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

10. What Security Measures Do We Apply?

Our measures

We are obliged by law to put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures against unauthorised or unlawful processing of your personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your personal data. We have accordingly implemented security policies, rules and technical measures with a view to achieving this, and all information you provide to us is therefore stored on secure servers.

Transfer of data to us over the internet

We use Secured Socket Layer (“SSL”) software in order to encrypt the personal information that you provide to us whilst it is in transit over the internet from your browser to our website. This will work if your browser is SSL enabled (which most are). You can verify that this is working by looking for the symbol of a closed lock or solid key on the bottom bar of your browser window, and checking that the prefix for the web address in the browser address bar has changed from “http” to “https”. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site or that SSL is completely secure.

11. Your Rights

You have the following rights in relation to your personal data under the Data Protection Act 1998. If you wish to exercise any of these rights, then please contact us using the contact information set out on our website.

Finding out what data we hold

The Data Protection Act gives you a right to be told what data we hold about you. If you wish to exercise this right, then please contact us using the contact details on our website. We may charge you a fee of £10 to cover our costs in dealing with your request.

Stopping marketing

If we are sending you marketing messages, the Data Protection Act gives you a right to ask us to stop doing this. We will provide you with details of how to do this, each time we send you a marketing message. Alternatively, please contact us using our contact details in this policy or on our website.

Use causing distress

You have the right to ask us to stop using any data for any purpose, where that purpose is causing you substantial distress. If you have any concerns regarding our use of your data, please contact us using our contact details on our website.

Changes to your information

You have the right to ask for the rectification, erasure or blocking of any of your personal information which is inaccurate or not up to date. You may make a request to us to change or modify your information at any time. Further if you are aware at any time that any of the information that you have given to us has changed then please let us know at the earliest opportunity.

Compensation

You may have the right to claim compensation for damage and (in certain cases) distress you suffer if we do not comply with data protection laws.

Complaints to applicable authority

The laws we comply with are regulated by the Information Commissioner (www.ico.gov.uk) in the United Kingdom. In addition to your rights above, it is open to you, if you have a complaint or concern, to seek assistance from this regulator, which has powers to compel us to comply with applicable laws and fine us for non-compliance. However, before you do so, we would hope that you will contact us first to discuss any complaint or concerns you have.

12. Cookies

Usage

In common with many other online services, we may use “cookies” to store and track information about your usage of our site. Cookies are small pieces of information that are transferred from our site to and stored by your browser in a small text file on your computer or mobile phone. The use of cookies is common in the computer industry. We use cookies in four ways:

Per-session cookies

These are used while you are logged on to our site to record temporary data relating to your visit to our site, to manage the delivery of web pages to you and any registration and ordering processes, and to help us monitor traffic through the site.

Auto logon cookie

This stores some personal information between visits to our site in order to allow you to log on automatically.

Usage cookie

This stores historic data about your visits to our site and allows us to personalise your experience, providing features such as special offers, and allowing you to store items in your shopping basket between visits.

Advertising cookies

We use Google Display Advertising and have Google Analytics tracking code to support this. Analytics collect data about our site’s traffic and this is used to implement our Online Advertising and Remarketing whereby our ads are shown on sites across the internet. Ourselves and third-party vendors (including Google) use first-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimise, and serve ads based on users past visits to our website. We cannot gain personally identifiable information from these cookies. You can opt-out of Analytics through Google’s Ads Preferences Manager. You may also wish to use the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. It is worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won’t see adverts, just simply that they won’t be tailored to you any longer.

Blocking cookies

If you do not want to use “cookies” most Internet browser programs will permit you to turn them off. Should you do this, you will be able to access our site as normal, but some processes that depend on cookies may not work properly.
