This data is collected by Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel. We use your data lawfully and fairly. The data above is used in our legitimate interests, as it helps us to understand how people are using our website, and enables us to improve our customers’ experience.


If you purchase an item from us then we will ask for personal data that includes your name, billing address, shipping address, email address and phone number. This information is necessary so that we can process your order, get your item to you quickly and communicate with you during this process to make it as smooth as possible.

How we keep your data secure

We take your privacy and security very seriously. Any information you provide to us is stored on secure servers and is encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Personal information is contained behind secure networks and is only accessed by a limited number of people, who understand the need to keep this data secure and confidential at all times.

Where we have provided you (or where you have chosen) a password or user ID that allows you access to certain parts of our website, it is your responsibility to keep these safe. Do not share your password with anyone else and logout of your account after any sessions, to reduce risks on shared computers or networks.


We do not store any of your financial data on our servers. Our nominated third party payment providers, Paypal and Stripe host all payments securely.


Wherever possible, we keep your data within the EEA. Where this is not possible, the following safeguards are in place:

  • We use Facebook Pixel for website analytics and marketing purposes and your data may be transferred outside of the EU. When this happens, your data is protected by the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks, adhered to by Facebook.
  • We use Google Analytics for website analytics, and your data may be transferred outside of the EU. When this happens, your data is protected by the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks, adhered to by Google Analytics.
  • If you’ve joined our mailing list, your name and email is stored with MailChimp on their data servers in the US. MailChimp has self-certified to both the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield regimes, and lawfully transfers EU/EEA personal data to the U.S. pursuant to their Privacy Shield Certification.


How & when we share your data

As an ecommerce website, there is inevitably some sharing of data with third-party companies. When any data is shared we make a risk assessment to ensure that your data will remain protected. We transfer data to a third party in the following ways:

  • When data is sent to Facebook Pixel to track site visitors
  • When data is sent to Google Analytics to help us understand our website traffic, behaviour on our website and ways we can improve user experience
  • When you sign-up to receive email communications from us and your name and email are stored in MailChimp.
  • When data is sent to Royal Mail or our preferred courier service to expediate the transport of your purchases

We will never sell or trade your personal data in any way.

The organisation that holds your information, shall no longer process the personal data unless they can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of yourself, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
