You can contact us at any time if you do not wish to receive our marketing communications by simply contacting us and letting us know.
Please be assured that you can exercise your rights in relation to your personal data by opting out of these services at any time – this includes the right to correct, request or delete any held personal data by us. Please contact us at [email protected] to do this.
Rest assured, any personal information you provide to us (or which is available on public registers) and any user information, from which we can identify you, is held in accordance with our data protection policies and in accordance with data protection legislation. You can always ask us to revoke prior permissions and given consents at any time. You also have the right to correct, request or delete any held personal data. Please contact us at [email protected] to do this.

Impersonation of any other person or entity and use of a false name (or a name that you are not authorised to use) is prohibited.

WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH?
Your information may be disclosed to third parties we work closely with who help provide a service to you on our behalf. We ensure that these providers treat your information as securely as we do and will not use this for their own marketing purposes. We only share the necessary personal information that is needed to deliver our services to you. Examples of this are:
· Courier services. Depending on the size of the product you have ordered and where you live, we may use a third party to deliver your goods. We would need to inform them of your name, address, telephone number and email address so they can keep you updated on the location of your item and expected delivery times.
· IT, website and systems administration services to support our business.
· Payment and finance providers (such as Paypal, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Adyen and v12).
· Professional advisors such as consultants, legal advisors, auditors, bankers, accountants, pension providers and insurers who provide services to support our business.
· HM Revenue and Customs, regulators and other authorities who require reporting of our business activities in certain circumstances.
· Fraud Prevention and credit reference agencies where necessary to protect our customers and business interests.
· Third party providers of advertising and marketing communications for our business.
· Third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or merge with them.
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
Should the law need us to, we will collect and process your data. For instance, we are legally allowed to pass on information of people who have committed fraud or any other criminal activity that has affected us, to law enforcement.
We do not transfer your personal data outside the UK or European Economic Area (EEA).
Should this position change, or where your personal data is processed by one of our suppliers and this requires your personal data to be processed in a country or territory outside the UK or EEA, then we will ensure that we adopt one of the safeguards required under data protection legislation to ensure that it is given a similar degree of protection as personal data transferred within the UK and EEA.
One such safeguard that we are likely to employ in these circumstances is the use of Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC’s) or an International Data Transfer Agreement as the preferred mechanism to permit personal data to be transferred lawfully in accordance with the UK’s data protection legislation.
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the UK and/or EEA.

IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT WE ENCOUNTER A DATA BREACH, HOW WILL WE HANDLE THIS?

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.
