We are able to store cookies on your computer where they are necessary for the operation of our Website however, for non-essential cookies we need your permission.

We collect certain information from these cookies, and this includes information about your IP address, your location when you access our Website, the date and time you access our Website, the language you use and the type of browser you use.

We do not track individual users or use cookies to identify individuals. We use cookies to recognise you and your preferences, improve our Website's performance and collect analytical information for ourselves and our business partners. Without the knowledge gained we would not be able to provide the service we do.

These are the types of cookies we use:

  • 'Session cookies' allow us to track your actions during a single browsing session, but they do not remain on your device afterwards; and

We also collect, use and share aggregated data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your usage data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect aggregated data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this Policy.

How we store your personal data

We store all of your personal data on our servers within the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

We may transfer your collected data to storage outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or the United Kingdom. It may be processed outside the EEA or the United Kingdom to fulfil your order and to receive our Services and deal with payment. If we do store or transfer data outside the EEA or the United Kingdom, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated as safely and securely as it would be within the EEA or the United Kingdom. 

This means that sometimes we may need to use legally binding contractual terms between us and any third parties we engage with and the use of the EU-approved Model Contractual Arrangements. 

Data security is of great importance to us, and to protect your data we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure data collected through our Website. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We will still be responsible for protection of your personal data, even where we have transferred it outside the EEA or the United Kingdom.

We regularly review our data retention obligations to ensure we are not retaining data for longer than we are legally obliged to.
