  • We may, from time to time, send with your ordered products, inserts advertising the goods or services of unrelated third party companies. We do not pass on your personal data to these third party companies.


We sometimes share your personal data with trusted third parties.

  • From time to time we retain the services of other carefully selected and monitored companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf in connection with the successful operation and continuous improvement of our business. These companies and individuals are appointed as data processors. We may share your information with selected third parties including: (1) Suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you (e.g. in order to process your order and maintain your account, including the authorisation and validation of credit or debit card transactions, the provision of delivery services, the analysis of data, the support of our website and other business systems.).

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA")(including the USA). The reason for this transfer is that some of the operations we need managed in order to complete our contract with you are located outside of the EEA, for instance it may be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for one of our suppliers. Examples of these operations would include the processing of data to process your order and maintain your account including the authorisation and validation of credit or debit card transactions, the provision of delivery services, the analysis of data, etc. These companies or individuals may be provided with access to your personal details in order to fulfill their function but may not use such information for any other purpose.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Further, because the Internet infrastructure is global, it is not possible to predict the routes that information sent over the Internet will take, the information you provide may be transferred temporarily via a route which takes it outside the European Economic Area as it passes between you and us. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.


We know how much data security matters to all our customers. With this in mind we will treat your data with the utmost care and take all appropriate steps to protect it.

Access to your personal data is password-protected, and sensitive data such as payment card information is secured and encrypted to ensure it is protected. We use the industry leading internet payment company SagePay and Paypal to protect your card details and protect us from fraud.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.


Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we will only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.

At the end of that retention period, your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning.

If you have not used your account for more than five years, it will be flagged as inactive and we will contact you to ask whether you want to keep it open. Unless you reply to say Yes, we will close the account and delete or anonymise the personal data associated with it.


Whenever you have given us your consent to use your personal data, you have the right to change your mind at any time and withdraw that consent.

In cases where we are processing your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest, you can ask us to stop for reasons connected to your individual situation.

We must then do so unless we believe we have a legitimate overriding reason to continue processing your personal data.

You have the following rights to request:

  • Access to the personal data we hold about you, free of charge in most cases.
  • Correction of your personal data when incorrect, out of date or incomplete.
  • Erasure of your personal data.
  • That we stop using your personal data for direct marketing.
