In specific situations, we can collect and process your data with your consent. For example, when you tick a box to receive email newsletters.
When collecting your personal data, we’ll always make clear to you which data is necessary in connection with a particular service.
In certain circumstances, we need your personal data to comply with our contractual obligations.

In specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.
For example, we will use your purchase history to send you or make available personalised offers.
We also combine the shopping history of many customers to identify trends and ensure we can keep up with demand, or develop new products/services.

Why and how do we use your data?
We want to give you the best possible customer experience. One way to achieve that is to get the richest picture we can of who you are by combining the data we have about you. We then use this to offer you promotions and products that are most likely to interest you.
The data privacy law allows this as part of our legitimate interest in understanding our customers and providing the highest levels of service.
Of course, if you wish to change how we use your data, you can contact us via email or telephone. Please see our ‘contact us’ section of the website.
Remember, if you choose not to share your personal data with us, or refuse certain contact permissions, we might not be able to provide some services you’ve asked for.
For example, if you’ve asked us to let you know when an item comes back into stock, we can’t do that if you’ve withdrawn your general consent to hear from us.
Here’s how we’ll use your personal data:
- To process any orders that you make by using our website. If we don’t collect your personal data during checkout, we won’t be able to process your order and comply with our legal obligations.
For example, your details may need to be passed to a third party warehouse to supply or deliver the product that you ordered, and we may keep your details for a reasonable period afterwards in order to fulfil any contractual obligations such as refunds and exchanges.
- To respond to your queries, refund requests and complaints. Handling the information you sent enables us to respond. We may also keep a record of these to inform any future communication with us and to demonstrate how we communicated with you throughout. We do this on the basis of our contractual obligations to you, our legal obligations and our legitimate interests in providing you with the best service and understanding how we can improve our service based on your experience.
- To protect our business and your account from fraud and other illegal activities. This includes using your personal data to maintain, update and safeguard your account. We’ll also monitor your browsing activity with us to quickly identify and resolve any problems and protect the integrity of our websites. We’ll do all of this as part of our legitimate interest.
For example, by checking your password when you login and using automated monitoring of IP addresses to identify possible fraudulent log-ins from unexpected locations.

- To send you communications required by law or which are necessary to inform you about our changes to the services we provide you. For example, updates to this Privacy Notice, product recall notices, and legally required information relating to your orders. These service messages will not include any promotional content and do not require prior consent when sent by email or text message. If we do not use your personal data for these purposes, we would be unable to comply with our legal obligations.
- To administer any of our competitions which you enter, based on your consent given at the time of entering.
- To comply with our contractual or legal obligations to share data with law enforcement.

- We regularly monitor our system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and we carry out penetration testing to identify ways to further strengthen security.
How long do we keep your data?
- Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we’ll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.
- When you place an order, we’ll keep the personal data you give us for six years so we can comply with our legal and contractual obligations.

We will share your personal data with the following trusted third parties.

If we do this, we have procedures in place to ensure your data receives the same protection as if it were being processed inside the EEA. For example, our contracts with third parties stipulate the standards they must follow at all times. If you wish for more information about these contracts please contact our Data Protection Officer.

Items in your basket are not reserved. There are instances when stock levels are close to zero, meaning that multiple customers can have the same low stock item in their basket at the same time. This means the first order to complete will take the stock which can result in more than one customer placing an order for the same item. If this happens we will contact you immediately via email in order to rectify where possible or refund the item.
Please note that you’re only able to use one discount code per order and multiple discount codes cannot be used in conjunction with one another. We will hold sale events from time to time, where a discount code will be able to be used on a sale item that is already discounted and therefore it will be made clear within our marketing that a discount code can be used to further reduce the price of an item in this instance.
Please wait for the discount code to be received within your inbox before placing your order. We cannot apply discount codes after your order has been placed.
Note: for the welcome email/new user email, this may go into your SPAM folder so please do check in there also before getting in touch with our Customer Service team, if you have not yet received this after signing up.
The code you wish to use will need to entered manually within the dedicated promotional code box during the checkout process.
For any codes that had not applied correctly, please report these to our Customer Service team within 12hrs of placing your order and we can look into these issues on a case by case basis to come to a resolution. Any discounts reported outside of this window, cannot be honoured retrospectively.
