The purpose of this notice
To describe how we collect and use personal data about you in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation.
What we need
We only collect basic personal data about you which does not include any special categories of personal information about you; this is known as Special Category Data. Having said this, the basic data collected from you does include name, address, e-mail, telephone number, financial information (in order to make and take agreed payments – no card details are stored on our system at any time).
Why we need it
We need to know your basic personal data to be able to provide goods and services to you, process your orders, provide you with information we feel is necessary or beneficial and tell you about our products and services. We will not collect any personal data from you we do not need to provide and oversee this service to you.
What we do with it
We will only ever use your data for the following reasons:
- to enter into, perform, or adhere to the terms of a contract with you
- to comply with a legal duty
- to protect your vital interests
- for our own (or a third party’s) lawful interests, provided your rights don’t override these
- to improve our own services and/or products
- from time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone, fax or mail. We may use the information to customise the website according to your interests.
In any event, we’ll only use your information for the purpose or purposes it was collected for.
Whenever we process data for business-related matters, we will ensure that we always keep your personal data rights in high regard and take account of these rights at all times.
When we process your personal data for our legitimate interests, we will make sure that we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You have the right to object to this processing if you wish, and if you wish to do so please email your objection to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bear in mind that if you object this may affect our ability to carry out the tasks above, for your benefit.
Where we keep it
We are based in the UK and we store our data within the EU on a cloud-based platform which is secure and encrypted to avoid external breaches. Some organisations which provide services to us may transfer personal data outside of the EU, but we will only allow them to do if your data is adequately protected.

How long we keep it
We will only use and store information for so long as it is required for the purposes it was collected for. How long information will be stored depends on the information in question and what it is being used for. For example, if you ask us not to send you e-mails, we will stop storing your e-mail contact (though we’ll keep a record of your preference not to be e-mailed).
We continually review what information we hold and delete what is no longer required. We never store payment card information. We will not retain your data for any longer than necessary and the longest time that we will hold your data will be six years.
