How long do we keep your information?

If we collect your personal information, the length of time we keep it depends on a number of factors including the purpose for which we use that information and our legal obligations.

As we use a third party payment processor for credit card payments, we do not collect or hold credit card details.

We will always retain your personal information for 7 years after the date it is no longer needed by us for any of the purposes listed under What information do we collect and why? above. This is because we may need your personal information to establish, bring or defend legal claims. The exceptions to this are where:

  1. the law requires us to hold your personal information for a longer period, or delete it sooner;
  2. you exercise your right to have the information erased (where it applies) and we do not need to hold it in connection with any of the reasons permitted or required under the law;
  3. we bring or defend a legal claim or other proceedings during the period we retain your personal information, in which case we will retain your personal information until those proceedings have concluded and no further appeals are possible; or
  4. in limited cases, existing or future law or a court or regulator requires us to keep your personal information for a longer or shorter period.

Security and storage

We understand that security is vital when purchasing online. Information you give us when setting up an account or purchasing from our store will be stored securely on our systems and we use sophisticated technology to ensure that all your personal and delivery details remain confidential.

We do not store payment card details and we use a trusted third party paymen processor to handle payment card transactions via a secure payment platform. They receive information needed to verify and authorise your payment, and are obliged to keep all of your personal information private.

Our security technologies and procedures are regularly reviewed to ensure that they are up to date and effective.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to our website. Any transmission is at your own risk and you should ensure that any payment transactions you make are made in a secure environment. We recommend that you keep confidential any personal security codes and passwords, and take steps to keep such details safe.

We will not use or disclose personal information without consent, unless permitted or required to do so by law or for the purposes of legal advice, audit, or the administration and management of our business (including service-monitoring). We may also enable law enforcement agencies to access and use your personal data to detect, investigate and prevent fraud or other crimes.

Trans-border data flows

We work with some suppliers who may make use of cloud and/or hosted technologies, or store data on servers across international borders. For example, our eCommerce platform BigCommerce stores data on its servers in the US.

Therefore, some personal or confidential information may be disclosed or stored in a foreign country. We will only disclose information to an organisation in a country which has a substantially similar privacy regime and that complies with applicable privacy laws.
