Personal information which we collected may be transferred to 3rd parties on your behalf, only with your consent. Your data will never be sold to 3rd parties with the purpose of marketing but may be transferred to the suppliers of products you have purchased to complete the order.

How do we keep your personal information safe:

Although data transmission over the Internet or website cannot be guaranteed to be secure, we and our business partners work hard to maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information in accordance with applicable data protection requirements. Our main security measures are:

  • tightly restricted personal access to your data on a “need to know“ basis and for the communicated purpose only

  • transferred collected data only in encrypted form

  • highly confidential data stored only in encrypted form - e.g. credit card information

  • physical data is constantly stored in a secure, locked location at all times when not in use.


How long we keep your personal information for:

  • We retain your information only as long as is necessary for the purpose for which we obtained them and any other permitted linked purposes. If information is used for two purposes we will retain it until the purpose with the latest period expires; but we will stop using it for the purpose with a shorter period once that period expires.

  • We restrict access to your information to only those persons who need to use it for the relevant purpose.

  • Our retention periods are based on business needs and your information that is no longer needed is either irreversibly anonymised or destroyed securely.

  • Use for marketing - We retain your personal information for as long as is necessary, but only for the relevant purpose that we collected it for. You retain the right to remove this consent at any point.

  • Use to perform a contract - In relation to your information used to perform any contractual obligation with you we may retain that data whilst the contract remains in force plus one year to deal with any queries or claims thereafter.

  • Where claims are contemplated - In relation to any information where we reasonably believe it will be necessary to defend or prosecute or make a claim against you, us or a third party, we may retain that data for as long as that claim could be pursued.
