Your duty to inform us of changes
It is important that the data we hold about you is accurate and current. We ask that you review and update changes to your personal data as required when you use our Site so that we can best meet your needs and requirements.
Our website may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. By clicking on these links or enabling connections you may be allowing third parties to collect or share your personal data. We have no control over these third-party websites, plug-ins or applications and are not responsible for their privacy notices, therefore you should also read their privacy notices to understand what personal data they collect about you and how they use it.
We may collect, use, store and transfer the types of personal data about you listed in Part 1 of the Appendix to this Privacy Notice.
We also collect, use and share aggregated data. However, if we combine aggregated data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat this as your personal data.
We do not intentionally collect any special categories of personal data or any information about criminal convictions and offences.
Failure to provide personal data
If we are required by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, to collect your personal data and you fail to provide it, we may not be able to enter into or perform the contract with you and, we may have to cancel our service. We will notify you of this at the relevant time.
We collect personal data in the following ways:
|Direct interactions||You may provide personal data when you complete online forms, create a user account on our website, place an order for our products, make payments through our website, respond to us in respect of a survey or otherwise or correspond with us (by post, phone or email).|
|Third parties||We may receive personal data from:|
(a) analytics providers;
(b) advertising networks and
(c) our suppliers such as payment providers, website support and maintenance providers (and these third parties may be based outside or inside the EEA).
We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data:
- to perform the contract we have entered into with you;
- to comply with a legal obligation; and
- where it is necessary to carry out our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
Part 2 of the Appendix to this Privacy Notice sets out the lawful basis we will rely on to process your personal data.
Please note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your information.
Generally, you will only receive marketing communications from us:
(a) if you have requested information from us;
(b) you have provided your consent to receiving marketing at the time we collect your personal data and you have not subsequently opted out or withdrawn your consent;
(c) purchased products from us and have not opted out of receiving marketing or unsubscribed; or
(d) if we have another basis to send you the marketing communications.
We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes. We will not share your personal data with third parties for their marketing purposes.
How to opt out
You can opt out of email marketing by clicking the unsubscribe button within the particular marketing email. You can also withdraw your consent to marketing at any time by contacting us.
Even if you opt out of receiving marketing, we may still use your personal data for other purposes provided we have a lawful basis to do so.
Change of purpose
We will only use your personal data for the purpose that we originally collected it for, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.
If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to use your personal data in this manner.
We may process your personal data (without your knowledge or consent) where this is required or permitted by law.
We may share your personal data with third parties, further details of whom are set out in Part 4 of the Appendix to this Privacy Notice. We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes. They can only process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
Some of our external third parties may be based outside the European Economic Area (EEA), so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data to countries outside of the EEA.
Whenever we transfer your personal data to a country outside of the EEA, we ensure that a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- we will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission or otherwise under applicable law;
- we use specific contracts approved by the European Commission (which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe with our services providers) or otherwise under applicable law;
- we may transfer data to US based service providers under the Privacy Shield (or another accredited regime) which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US.
We have put in place appropriate security measures as applicable to the nature of our business and associated level of risk to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We also limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know and they can only process your personal data on our instructions and will be subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
We may update our data retention practices from time to time and you can request details by contacting us. However, we are legally required to keep basic information about our customers (including contact, identity, financial and transaction data) for six years after the end of the tax year in which they cease being customers, for tax purposes.
We may also anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes. We can use anonymised information indefinitely without further notice to you.
You have certain rights in certain circumstances under data protection law. These are set out in full in Part 3 of the Appendix to this Privacy Notice. If you wish to exercise any of your rights, please contact our DPM.
You will not have to pay a fee to exercise any of your rights. However, if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive, we may charge a reasonable fee for this information or refuse to comply with your 4 request.
We may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity when you contact us. This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who does not have the right to receive it.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally, it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
We may change this Privacy Notice from time to time by updating this page. By continuing to use our website, you shall be deemed to have consented to and agreed to any such updates. Please check it regularly to ensure you are aware of any changes. This Privacy Notice was last updated on 3 September 2019.
