To respond to your questions, refund requests and complaints.

To keep a record of when and why you contact us and to keep your contact details up-to-date.

For statistical, analytical or survey purposes - so we can improve our websites and the services we offer you.

To enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other business functions on our behalf such as advertising on social media sites you might use and visit (our ability to do this will depend on the privacy settings you have on your social media accounts).

Where you are an existing customer (or you have otherwise given us your data) and have not opted out, or where you have consented, we use your data to send you information about our business and products we think you might like and to notify you of products or special offers that may be of interest to you.

To process your application when you enter a competition promotion or prize draw.

In order to help us manage our customer relationships, we use third party platforms. These platforms assist us to do lots of things, including: conduct email marketing campaigns, advertise online, undertake customer analytics, plan and put on events, fulfill orders, make deliveries, returns and refunds etc. We therefore pass on your personal data to these third parties, on the condition that they agree to handle your information in line with this notice.

 

Why are we allowed to handle and store your personal data? There are number of legal bases which allow us to use your personal data. The following sets out more detailed explanations of the bases we rely on to collect and process your personal data:

1. Consent: If you visit our site and are not an existing customer, or if you fill in any in-store materials, such as prize-draw entries, we might ask for your consent to process your data, so that we can send you our special offers and news.

2. Contractual obligations: Our primary use of this basis is when you purchase our products. In this situation it is necessary for us to process your personal data in order to fullfill your order and send your goods to you.

3. Legal compliance: In some circumstances, we may be legally required to collect and process your data e.g. to pass it on to the police if criminal activity is suspected.

4. Legitimate Interest: It may be necessary to use your data to help us run our business. For example, to action any changes to your account that you request, or to personalize the services we provide - with the aim of improving your customer experience. We will only use your data in these instances, where doing so does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.

 

How long do we keep your personal data for? We only keep your personal data for as long as we deem necessary for the purpose for which it was collected (subject to any legal requirements). Once it is no longer necessary, we will either delete the data, or anonymize it. The use of anonymized data helps us to optimize our customer service.
