Your Data will also be transmitted to carefully selected third party providers who help us provide our services and fulfil our contracts with you, as described above. These may include payment processing, delivery of goods, search engine and website facilities, advertising and marketing.

    Some of these providers may be based in non-EU countries and, in these cases, the transfer of your Data to these countries is performed in compliance with the guarantees provided by European Law. Please note that all providers have been assessed and chosen for their proven reliability and competence in the processing of your Data.

    In certain circumstances we may be legally required to share your Data to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to request for information we receive from judicial and administrative authorities, or to otherwise protect our rights where necessary.

    Finally, we may transfer your Data to third parties relating to a reorganisation, restructuring, merger, acquisition or transfer of assets, provided that the receiving party agrees to treat your Data in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

  • 10.6 Managing your marketing preferences

    We will always obtain your specific consent and marketing preferences before using Data to send you marketing materials by email, text or post. If you wish to change or subsequently opt out of these communications you may do so at any time by clicking the ‘manage preferences’ or ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of our emails. Alternatively, you can contact us directly and we will update your preferences for you.

    We use your Data to provide you with targeted advertisements on other platforms that we believe may be of interest to you, in line with industry standards and regulations.

    The Digital Advertising Alliance is an independent not-for-profit organisation which establishes and enforces responsible privacy practices for relevant digital advertising.

  • 10.7 Your rights

    We believe you should be able to access and control your personal information no matter where you live. If you are a resident of California or the European Economic Area (“EEA”), you have the right to access Data we hold about you and to ask that your Data be corrected, updated, transferred or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right, regardless of where you live, please contact us through the contact information below.

  • 10.8 Data retention and storage

    We will only keep your Data for as long as we need to, and / or for as long as we have your permission to keep it.

    Your Data will be deleted in a safe and secure manner if we no longer need it.

  • 10.9 Security

    We take security very seriously and protect your Data with specific technical and organisational measures aimed at preventing unauthorised access, accidental loss and/or destruction of your Data.

    We use industry standard TLS certificates to provide encryption of Data in transit, for example, access to our website is covered by HTTPS through Shopify, our online store provider.

    Your Data is also securely backed up with the ability to restore this information in the event of a security breach.

    We have internal policies setting out our data security approach and training for employees handling your Data.

    Finally, we undertake to test, verify and regularly evaluate the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures in order to guarantee the continuous improvement in the safety of our Data processing.

    Please note however, that no method of transmission over the internet or electronic storage can be 100% secure and we cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorised access, loss, or corruption of Data beyond our control.

  • 10.10 Do not track

    Under the California Online Privacy Protection Act (“CalOPPA”), privacy policies are required to include a Do not track (“DNT”) clause outlining how the Site responds to users' DNT requests.

    There is currently no commonly accepted response to DNTs and sites are not required to respond to requests but must disclose whether they do or do not.

    We are currently unable to alter our Site’s data collection and use practices when we receive a DNT request since there is no option for this setting within Shopify. We apologies for this and would be happy to discuss further.

  • 10.11 Changes to our privacy policy

    We may update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. You will be alerted to this by a temporary notice on the homepage of the Site.

    This privacy policy was last updated on 17th June 2021

    These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality (such as video play back) and personalisation (such as remembering items left in your shopping cart next time you visit). They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to the Site. Functional cookies are not essential to the functioning of a website, but rather improve navigation quality and experience. If you do not allow these cookies then some features may not function properly.

These cookies remember that you visited our website and we may share this information with trusted third-parties, such as advertising partners.

    These cookies are placed by many social media plugins (for example social media ‘share’ or ‘like’ buttons), and other tools meant to provide or improve the content on a website. We integrate these modules into our platform to improve your experience of browsing and interacting with the Site.

    You can alter how your information is used and recorded by these third parties (such as Facebook, Instagram, and Google) by amending the privacy settings on their respective websites.
