How your personal data is collected

Purposes for which we use personal data and the legal basis
When providing our products or services to you, we may use your personal data for the following purposes and on the following lawful bases:
Purpose / Lawful Basis for Processing
To provide our products or services to you / Performance of contract
Process your data / Processing necessary for the purposes of service delivery
To comply with any legal obligations we may have / Legal obligation
To improve your browsing experience by personalising your website visit / Our legitimate interest to ensure visitors to our website can easily navigate our website and locate the information they are looking for
Where personal data is processed because it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, we will be unable to provide our products or services without the required information.
Sharing your data
When we provide services to you, we share your personal data with our vendors and third-party service providers, for instance, for payments processing or to organise warehousing and shipping. When we do so, we ensure having entered into Data Processing Agreements with our service providers, which means that they can only process your personal data in accordance with our instructions and they will not be able to use it for their own purposes.
Personal data may also be shared with government authorities and/or law enforcement officials for the prevention or detection of crime, if required by law or if required for a legal or contractual claim.
We have taken appropriate steps to ensure that personal data processed outside the UK has an essentially equivalent level of protection as it has within the UK. We do this by ensuring that:
We enter into Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) with the providers and ensure that supplementary measures are also applied, where necessary (A copy of the existing SCCs can be found here Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) after the transition period ends | ICO. These are due to be updated shortly and we will update this privacy notice when this happens).
How long we keep your data
We will retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to provide you with our services and for a reasonable period thereafter to enable us to meet our contractual and legal obligations and to deal with complaints and claims.
At the end of the retention period, your personal data will be securely deleted or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data, so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning.
How we protect your data
We endeavour to process all personal data securely and have implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect data that we process from unauthorised disclosure, use, alteration or destruction.
