Like many businesses, we sometimes hire selected third parties who act on our behalf to support our operations, such as (i) card processing or payment services (see “Payment Information” below), (ii) credit reference agencies to protect against possible fraud, (iii) IT suppliers and contractors (e.g. data hosting providers or delivery partners) as necessary to provide IT support and enable us to provide customer services and other goods/services available on this Site or to customers, (iv) web analytics providers, (v) providers of digital advertising services and (vi) providers of CRM, marketing and sales software solutions. Pursuant to our instructions, these parties may access, process or store your personal data in the course of performing their duties to us and solely in order to perform the services we have hired them to provide.

We may need to disclose your personal data for administrative and legal reasons such as (i) to comply with a legal obligation and/or judicial or regulatory proceedings, a court order or other legal process (ii) to enforce our Terms & Conditions or other applicable contract terms that you are subject to or (iii) to protect us, our customers, or contractors against loss or damage. This may include (without limit) exchanging information with the police, courts or law enforcement organisations.


Any credit/debit card payments and other payments you make through our Site will be processed by our third party payment providers and the payment data you submit will be securely stored and encrypted by our payment service providers using up to date industry standards. We do not ourselves directly process or store the debit/credit card data that you submit.

Upon expiry of the applicable retention period we will securely destroy your personal data in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case it is no longer personal data.


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.  Any changes we may make to our Privacy Policy in the future will be posted on this page – please revisit to see any updates or modifications.

We currently operate in Europe, and do not need to transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). However, some of our providers may transfer personal information to third countries in order to provide support, or because they host information in a third country. For example:

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website. Our analytics service provider generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the internet or public communications networks can never be completely secure. We will take appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect the personal data that you submit to us against unauthorised/unlawful access or loss, destruction or damage, although we cannot guarantee with complete certainty the security of personal data that you provide to us online. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password or login which enables you to access certain restricted parts of our Site, you are responsible for doing everything you reasonably can to keep these details secret, and you must not share your password or login details with anyone else.


We may from time to time expand or reduce our business and this may involve the sale and/or transfer of control of all or part of our operations. Data provided by users or customers will, where it is relevant to any part of our business so transferred, be transferred along with that part and the new owner or newly controlling party will, under the terms of this privacy policy, be permitted to use the data for the proposes for which it was originally supplied to us.

We may also disclose data to a prospective puchaser of our business or any part of it.

In the above instances, we will take steps with the aim of ensuring your privacy is protected.

Right to rectification: If your personal data is inaccurate or incomplete, you are entitled to ask that we correct or complete it.

If you ask us, and where possible and lawful to do so, we will also tell you with whom we shared your personal data so you can contact them directly.

Right to erasure: You may ask us to delete or remove your personal data, such as where our legal basis for the processing is your consent and you withdraw consent. If we shared your data with others, we will tell them about the erasure where possible. If you ask us, and where possible and lawful to do so, we will also tell you with whom we shared your personal data with so you can contact them directly.
