The purpose of this Privacy Notice is to make you aware of how and why your personal information will be collected and used by us, predominantly for the purposes of the performance of our contract with you as our customer, and for how long it will usually be retained. It provides you with certain information that must be provided under the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA).

This Privacy Notice sets out how we use information relating to our customers, prospects, visitors to and users of the Site and people who interact with or do business with us (such as our suppliers) (“you”, “your”). In these cases, we will be the “data controller” for the purposes of GDPR.

It is important that you read this Privacy Notice, together with any other privacy notice we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal information about you, so that you are aware of how and why we are using such information.


There are six overarching principles of the GDPR with which we will ensure compliance when processing your personal data:

Where we allow you to post comments on any part of the Site, personal data such as your name and contact details may be collected.


Our site uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our Site. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our Site and also allows us to improve our Site. By continuing to browse the Site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

A “cookie” is a piece of information that is stored on your computer, tablet or phone to recognise your browser and which records how you have used a website. This means that when you go back to that website, it can give you tailored options based on the information it has stored about your last visit. You can normally alter the settings of your browser to prevent it from accepting cookies.

How do we use cookies?

We may use cookies to improve the way the Site works and to monitor how people use our Site. This helps us to understand how people use our Site so we can develop and improve the design, layout and function of the Site. The cookies we use are explained below:

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Site and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the Site. Without these cookies, certain services and functionality on the Site, such as remembering items in your basket, cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.

Functionality cookies

These cookies allow our Site to remember choices you make (such as your language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with news or updates relevant to the products you buy. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, font and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as viewing a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymised. They do not gather any information about you that could be used for advertising or remember where you have been on the internet.

Third Party Cookies

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services, including those set out below in this Privacy Notice) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies. You can block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of the Site.

Google Analytics

The Site uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyse how users use the Site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Site (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Site, compiling reports on Site activity for operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Google lists the cookies used by their analytics service on the following web page:


How to reject cookies

Note that most web browsers will accept cookies, but if you would rather that we did not collect data in this way you can choose to accept all or some or reject cookies in your browser’s privacy settings. Rejecting all cookies means that certain features on the Site cannot then be provided to you and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all our Site’s features. The “Help” menu in the bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-ons settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.

  • If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time.


We will only use your personal information when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal information in the following circumstances:

  1. Where we need to perform the contract we have entered into with you; and/or
  2. Where we need to comply with a legal obligation; and/or
  3. Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party), and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.

Generally, we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal information other than in relation to sending third party direct marketing communications to you via email or text message.

If you decide to opt-in to our mailing list, you will receive emails that may include company news, updates, and related product or service information.

You have the right to withdraw your consent to such marketing communications at any time. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions in each email.


If you fail to provide certain information when requested either by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with products). In this case, we may have to cancel your order but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.


You will not be subject to decisions that will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated decision-making.


Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given, without your consent, to any other person for any reason other than those set out in this Privacy Notice.

Sharing your data with these trusted third-parties may involve transferring your data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Many of our external third parties are based outside the EEA and so their processing of your personal data may involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.

Whenever our trusted third-parties transfer and process your personal data outside of the EEA, we require them to ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring that at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • Transfers of your personal data are restricted to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission, and service providers are required to adhere to their national data protection laws;
  • Transfers to providers based in the US, are subject to them being part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US; and/or
  • (Where neither of the above applies) we require service providers to use specific contracts approved by the European Commission, which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.

All our third-party service providers are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in line with GDPR and the DPA. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Where it is legally required or necessary in accordance with GDPR and the DPA, we may also share your information with:

  • financial organisations;
  • our auditors;
  • survey and research organisations;
  • professional advisers and consultants;
  • police forces, courts, tribunals; and
  • professional bodies.
