The processing and dispatching of your order will include providing customer service in the event that you have an enquiry and to facilitate the delivery of your order.

It is to be noted that you can object, at any time, to your personal information being used by us for direct marketing purposes. Each marketing email will include an unsubscribe link to enable you to opt-out of receiving future marketing communications.
What is our lawful basis for handling your personal information?
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) we must have a lawful basis to legally handle your personal information. The lawful basis that we rely upon are as follows:
- Contract – to take steps, at your request, to enter into a contract to fulfil your order and to perform our obligation under the contract (i.e. to deliver your order);
- Legal obligation – to share personal information with law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies if required to do so by law;
- Legitimate interests – to use your personal information to share your personal information with third party professional service providers that we engage and to share your personal information with our successor(s) in the event of a merger or acquisition; and
- Consent – to send you direct marketing emails about similar products and services which may be of interest to you.
What happens if I do not provide my personal information?
We need the above basic personal information in order for us to provide our services to you and process your order for our products. In the event that you do not provide us with the basic personal information we require to provide services to you we will not be able to fulfil your order and, in some cases, we may be unable to appropriately respond to your enquiries, for example, if you fail to provide basic personal information when submitting an enquiry form on our website.
Who will we share your personal information with?
We may share your personal information with third party delivery companies that we engage to deliver your order. The personal information that we share with third party delivery companies is limited to what is necessary in order for them to deliver your order to the right address and to right person.
We may share your personal information with law enforcement agencies, fraud prevention agencies and regulatory bodies such as HMRC when required to do so by law.
We may engage the services of professional advisers such as compliance consultants, lawyers and accountants who may be given access to your personal information in order to provide their services to us. We will ensure that your personal information is protected by obtaining a written undertaking of confidentiality from the professional service providers.
How long will we store your personal information?
We will store your personal information for up to six years from the date we process your order. This is to enable us to refer to our records in the unlikely event that you want to lodge a legal claim against us within the six-year limitation period. After the six-year storage period we will securely erase your personal information if you have objected to receiving direct marketing communications from us.
If you consent to direct marketing and do not subsequently exercise your right to object or unsubscribe to our marketing emails, we will store your personal information for marketing purposes until you exercise your right to object or unsubscribe. In other words, we will store your personal information indefinitely for direct marketing purposes until you change your marketing preference. It is to be noted that we will minimise the personal information we store about you to what is necessary for us to continue communicating relevant direct marketing communications to you by email.
