How your personal information is used
We may process your account data including your name and email address for the purposes of operating our website, providing our services, ensuring the security of our website and services, and communicating with you.
We may process information relating to transactions, including your contact details. The transaction data may be processed for the purpose of supplying the purchased goods and services and keeping proper records of those transactions.
We may send you notifications related to your orders by email or text message, to keep you up to date with the status of your order.
We may process data about your use of our website and services, including IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views and website navigation paths and information about the timing, frequency and pattern of your service use.
We do this to monitor and improve our website and services and to inform our marketing activity to provide you with the most relevant experience. Our website is not intended for children under the age of 18 and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children under the age of 18.
The law on data protection sets out a number of different reasons for which a company may collect and process your personal data, including:
In specific situations, we can collect and process your data with your consent. For example, when you tick a box and opt in to receive email communications. We will continue to send you these emails until you unsubscribe or update your preferences by clicking the “unsubscribe” or “update preferences” link in the footer of any email. You will still continue to receive any necessary transactional emails regarding your orders.
In certain circumstances, we need your personal data to comply with our contractual obligations. For example, if you order an item from us for home delivery, we’ll collect your address details to deliver your purchase, and pass them to our courier.
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 show you personalised product recommendations, offers or advertisements.
We also combine the shopping history of many customers to identify trends and ensure we can keep up with demand, or develop new products and services.
Sharing your information
We do not sell any of your personal data to any third party. However, providing our services to you requires sharing your information with carefully selected and trusted third parties, as set out in this statement:
We may disclose your personal data to any member of our group of companies for the purposes set out in this policy.
We will share transaction data with our payment services providers only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing your payments, refunding such payments and dealing with complaints and queries relating to such payments and refunds.
Information required to fulfil your order will be shared with our delivery companies.
Transactional messages will be sent via third-party services who may retain records for reporting purposes.
We may also provide third parties with anonymised information and analytics about our customers, which will never identify any individual.
If you have subscribed to our newsletter, we may send you emails to keep you aware of what we’re up to and help you find products of interest and to improve your customer experience. We may also record whether you have opened or clicked a marketing email that we have sent you to help us continue to deliver relevant marketing, content and product information to you. From time to time we may also send you surveys or feedback requests to help us improve our services and make our products and services more relevant to you. You can opt out of marketing emails at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link in the footer of any email. You will still continue to receive any necessary transactional emails regarding your orders.
We engage in online advertising, to help you see and find our products. We target banners and ads to you when you are on other websites and apps. We do this using a variety of digital marketing networks and ad exchanges, and we use a range of advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers, as well as specific services offered by some sites and social networks, such as Facebook’s Custom Audience service. We run this activity to provide you with the most relevant marketing content.
The banners and ads you see will be based on information we hold about you, or your previous use of our site (for example, the pages or products you viewed) or on banners or ads you have previously clicked on. Where we display personalised adverts on other organisations’ websites, the AdChoices icon will usually be displayed. Clicking on this icon will provide you with specific guidance on how to control your online advertising preferences. More information is available on the YourAdChoices website.
