Where we keep it

We are based [in the UK and we store our data within the EU. All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers.

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. We may transmit your personal data outside to the Rocket Science Group LLC, trading as MailChimp, a provider of marketing and email platforms. MailChimp is located in the United States of America and is a registered member of the Privacy Shield scheme which guarantees appropriate safeguards are in place in respect of the personal data we transfer to it.

Some of our systems use Microsoft products. As a US company, it may be that using their products result in personal data being transferred to or accessible from the US. However, we will allow this as we are certain personal data will still be adequately protected (as Microsoft is certified under the USAs Privacy Shield scheme).

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

How long we keep it

Your data will be stored indefinitely for the purpose of proof of purchase with regards to product guarantees. If you have opted in to marketing, we will also use your data to send you marketing communications. If you ask us not to send you marketing e-mails, we will stop storing your e-mails for marketing purposes (though well keep a record of your preference not to be e-mailed).

Our Marketing Practises

We will only get in touch with you for marketing purposes if you have opted in to join our emailing list, or have requested to receive our seasonal brochures. We may also get in touch with you if you have previously made a purchase from us and we think that you may be interested in similar products that we have to offer. Please be assured that you can opt out of these services at any time and have the right to correct, request or delete any held personal data. Please contact us at to do so.
