Privacy & Cookies
Updated 16/05/18 in accordance with new General Data Protection Rules (GDPR) on data protection which came into effect on the 25th of May 2018. Nothing has changed about your current settings or how your information is processed. We’ve simply improved the way we describe our practices with your data.
We only use your personal information to process product orders made through our site. Specifically, the information you consent to give on the form you fill in at checkout or when setting up an account. Without this information, we would not be able to process and post your order. We will not share your information with a third party.
When checking out as a guest, information for each order is stored securely in the event that you should contact us in the future to discuss your order. If you have created an account, we do not see or store the password you use to log in. Your account details are stored securely for your convenience as a return customer. Our website is hosted by Shopify. We use their platform to process your order(s) after you have been through the checkout. As outlined on our Orders and Delivery page, we do not see or store your card details.
You reserve the right to ask for your personal information to be deleted at any time by getting in touch with us. Should you wish to report a concern regarding the use of your personal data, you reserve the right to contact the Information Commissioners Office.
You can ‘opt in’ to our newsletter either by filling in the form provided or by ticking a specified box at checkout. We will never add you to our newsletter by default.
