Protecting your data

We are aware of the requirement to ensure your data is protected against accidental loss or disclosure, destruction and abuse. We have implemented an Information Security Management System in order to provide assurances to our customers and employees alike.

Where we share your data with third parties, we provide clear instructions to them to ensure that your data are held securely and in line with GDPR requirements. Third parties must implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of your data.


All information you key on the website is encrypted using Transport Layer Security (versions 1.2 and 1.3) to ensure that data is protected in transit.

How long we keep your data for

In line with data protection principles, we only keep your data for as long as we need it for, which will be the length of time we are required to hold the data by law (usually owing to tax).

Automated decision making

No decision will be made about you solely on the basis of automated decision making (where a decision is taken about you using an electronic system without human involvement) which has a significant impact on you.

Your rights in relation to your data

The law on data protection gives you certain rights in relation to the data we hold on you. These are:

  • the right to be informed. This means that we must tell you how we use your data, and this is the purpose of this privacy notice
  • the right of access. You have the right to access the data that we hold on you. To do so, you should make a subject access request. Please be as specific as you can regarding the information you require.
  • the right for any inaccuracies to be corrected. If any data that we hold about you is incomplete or inaccurate, you are able to require us to correct it
  • the right to have information deleted. If you would like us to stop processing your data, you have the right to ask us to delete it from our systems where you believe there is no reason for us to continue processing it
  • the right to restrict the processing of the data. For example, if you believe the data we hold is incorrect, we will stop processing the data (whilst still holding it) until we have ensured that the data is correct
  • the right to portability. You may transfer the data that we hold on you for your own purposes
  • the right to object to the inclusion of any information. You have the right to object to the way we use your data where we are using it for our legitimate interests
  • the right to regulate any automated decision-making and profiling of personal data. You have a right not to be subject to automated decision making in way that adversely affects your legal rights

Typically, consent is not the lawful basis under which we will be processing your data but where it has been necessary for you to provide consent (usually marketing and some cookies), you have the unrestricted right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent means that we will stop processing the data that you had previously given us consent to use. There will be no consequences for withdrawing your consent.

We might use your information where there’s a legitimate reason to do so, such as where it would help to facilitate a benefit to you or achieve our business objective.

If we use Legitimate Interests to process any data a legitimate interest balancing test (using the ICO’s template) will be documented.

We rely on legitimate interests to:

Personalise your experience and provide you with support

We sometimes make assumptions about your preferences based on the way you interact with our products and services and the information we hold about you. Knowing these allows us to understand the products, content and services our customers like, letting us focus our efforts on developing those areas. We may also use this information to make decisions about what direct marketing to show you. We may also provide you with help and support where we believe it is required. For example, if you have provided your contact information, we may contact you when a checkout journey is not completed.

To send product related and services communications

For certain types of marketing communications, we do not require your consent and we instead rely on our legitimate interest. This is the case for example where we send you communications about products or services that we provide to you. You can opt out of these communications either by visiting your preference centre if you have an account or in the communication itself.

Conduct market research

We may use the information we hold on you about your engagement with our products and services, to understand how our products are used and make improvements or develop other products and services our audiences may like. We may to contact you about your experience of a product or service we provide you

We may send you service-related messages, which are about the service we provide. We do not require your consent for these, and you are not able to opt out.
