HOW WE WILL USE YOUR INFORMATION

All personal information that we obtain about you and/or any other person whose details you provide will be recorded, used, and protected by us in accordance with current data protection legislation, our Terms and Conditions and this Privacy Policy. We will primarily use the personal information:

  • for registration and general administration (including verification, vetting and security checking)
  • to provide the goods and services you request from us
  • to communicate with you in the event that any goods or services requested are unavailable or if there is a query or problem with your requests
  • for record keeping purposes
  • to carry out market research so that we can improve the goods and services we offer
  • to track and analyse activity on this Website
  • to create an individual profile for you so that we can enhance your user experience,  to understand and respect your preferences and to provide newsletters and details of relevant offers and opportunities where you have agreed to receive them

Disclosing your personal information

In order to provide our products and services, we may, occasionally, appoint other organisations to carry out some of the processing activities on our behalf.

In these circumstances, we will ensure that personal information is properly protected and that it is only used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

USE OF YOUR INFORMATION OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN UNION

In order to provide the products and services you or others whose information you have provided to us, we may need to transfer your/their personal information to these countries some of which do not have laws that protect privacy rights as extensively as in the United Kingdom. If we do transfer your personal information to other territories, we will take proper steps to ensure that the information is protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

Privacy laws and practice are constantly developing and we aim to meet high standards.  Our policies and procedures are, therefore, under continual review.

YOUR RIGHTS TO ACCESS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
