This Privacy Notice explains in detail the types of personal data we may collect about you when you interact with us. It also explains how we’ll store and handle that data and keep it safe.
With your consent, we will use your personal data, preferences and details of your transactions to keep you informed by email, web, post, text, telephone and through our contact centres about relevant products and services including special offers, new products, promotions, events, and so on.
You are free to opt out of hearing from us by any of these channels at any time.

1.1.3. If the law requires us to, we may need to collect and process your data.
1.1.4. 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.
1.2. In operating our website, we may collect and process the following data about you:
1.2.1. Details of your visits to our website and the resources that you access, including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblog statistics and other communication data.

1.2.3. Information provided to us when you communicate with us for any reason.
3. Use of Your Information
3.1. The information that we collect and store relating to you is primarily used to enable us to provide our services to you. In addition, we may use the information for the following purposes:
3.1.1. To provide you with the information requested from us, relating to our products or services.
3.1.2. To provide information on other products which we feel may be of interest to you, where you have consented to receive such information.

3.1.5. If you are an existing customer, we may contact you with information about goods and services similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale to you.
3.1.6. Further, we may use your data, or permit selected third parties to use your data, so that you can be provided with information about related services which we consider may be of interest to you. We or they may contact you about these goods and services by any of the methods that you consented at the time your information was collected. An example of this is passing your information to a delivery company so that they may deliver to your address and notify you of when to expect your delivery.
3.1.7. If you are a new customer, we will contact you or allow third parties to contact you only when you have provided consent and only by those means you provided consent for.

If we do not use your personal data for these purposes, we would be unable to comply with our legal obligations.
4. Storing Your Personal Data
4.1. We may transfer data that we collect from you to locations outside of the European Economic Area for processing and storing. Also, it may be processed by staff operating outside the European Economic Area who work for us or for one of our suppliers.
4.1.2. Data that is provided to us is stored on our secure servers. Details relating to any transactions entered into on our site will be encrypted to ensure its safety.
4.1.3. The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password so that you can access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.
4.1.4. Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we will only keep it for as long as is necessary or legally required for the purpose for which it was collected.
