What personal data do we collect and how? Depending upon your use of our website, and your interactions with us through email or phone calls, we may collect some or all of the following personal and non-personal data:

  • name
  • address
  • contact information such as email addresses and telephone numbers
  • delivery address, if you place an order with us
  • demographic information such as post code, preferences, and interests
  • IP address
  • web browser type and version
  • operating system

Please note our website may ask you for payment details, such as billing information or credit or debit card information, however all payments made via our website will go through a third party payment processor such as PayPal and as such, we will have no access to this data. A separate contractual relationship will be created between you and the payment processor on their terms and conditions and we cannot be held liable for any errors, actions, omissions or incorrect charges that may be made by them.
When you provide us with payment details through a direct email, phone call or letter we shall retain these payment details for as long as the transaction requires it and no further than that. Your payment details will then be destroyed and you will need to supply them again for any further transactions.

How do you find out what personal data of yours we have You have the right to a copy of the information we hold about you and supplementary information. This is called a ‘subject access request’ and allows you to be aware of what data we process about you and under what legal basis. You can contact us in writing to our address (see above) or to  
You will be asked to provide the following details:

  • The personal information you want to access;
  • The date range of the information you wish to access

We will also need you to provide proof of identity in the form of a current driver’s license, current passport, or birth certificate. If we hold personal information about you, we will give you a copy of the information in an understandable format together with an explanation of why we hold and use it. If you are unable to submit the request yourself then someone else can place the request on your behalf.  If you are making a request on behalf of someone else, please include proof of identity for yourself and the data subject. We also need a letter from the data subject authorising the request on their behalf.
This request is free of charge, however, we maintain the right to charge a reasonable fee when a request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, particularly if it is repetitive.  This fee is based on the administrative cost of providing the information.   In the case of excessive repetitive requests we have the right to refuse to respond.
Once we have all the information necessary to respond to your request we will provide the information within one month of receipt.  This timeframe may be extended by up to two months if your request is particularly complex, in which case you will be notified within one month of receipt.  If we have to write to you requesting further information the 'clock' stops until all the necessary documentation has been provided.
How do we keep your information secure? We only keep your personal data for as long as we need to in order to use it as described above and/or for as long as we have your permission to keep it. Data security is very important to us, and to protect your data we have taken suitable measures to safeguard and secure data collected through our website or provided directly by you.
Your information will be only be accessible to our staff in the first instance and only to contractors if it is appropriate in order for them to carry out their role in line with this Privacy Policy.  We will always have control of what they see, how long they see it for, and what they are allowed to do with it. We will never sell your personal information, pass it to others or let other organisations use it for their own purposes.
Our website may contain links to other websites that are outside our control and are not covered by this Privacy Policy.  If you access other sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect information from you that will be used by them in accordance with their privacy policy, which may differ from ours.

Any personal data that you have provided will, where it is relevant to any part of our business that is being transferred, be transferred along with that part and the new owner or newly controlling party will, under the terms of this Privacy Policy, be permitted to use that data only for the same and specific purposes for which it was originally collected by us.
