Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service offered by Google. Google Analytics uses small text files called cookies. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. The cookies used on this site do not in themselves recognise the individual user but will recognise the computer you are using so that we know when that computer is used to return to the site.

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

LEGITIMATE INTEREST

In specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests. For example, we will use your email address to send you direct marketing information, telling you about products and services that we think might interest you.

Information gathered by the use of cookies in your web browser.

To deliver the best possible web experience, we collect technical information about your internet connection and browser as well as the country where your computer is located and the web pages viewed during your visit.

WHEN DO WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

1. When you visit our website;

HOW AND WHY DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

We want to give you the best possible customer experience. One way to achieve that is to get the richest picture we can of who you are by combining the data we have about you. We then use this to offer you promotions, products and services that are most likely to interest you.

The data privacy law allows this as part of our legitimate interest in understanding our customers and providing the highest levels of service.

Remember, if you choose not to share your personal data with us, or refuse certain contact permissions, we might not be able to provide some services you’ve asked for. For example, if you’ve asked us to let you know when an item comes back into stock, we can’t do that if you’ve withdrawn your general consent to hear from us.

HERE’S HOW WE’LL USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA AND WHY:

1. To process any orders that you make by phone, email or during tradeshows. If we don’t collect your personal data, we won’t be able to process your order and comply with our legal obligations. For example, your address details may need to be passed to a third party to supply or deliver the product or service that you ordered, and we may keep your details for a reasonable period afterwards in order to fulfil any contractual obligations such as refunds, guarantees and so on.

2. To respond to your queries, refund requests and complaints. Handling the information you sent enables us to respond. We may also keep a record of these to inform any future communication with us and to demonstrate how we communicated with you throughout. We do this on the basis of our contractual obligations to you, our legal obligations and our legitimate interests in providing you with the best service and understanding how we can improve our service based on your experience.

3. With your consent, we will use your personal data and preferences to keep you informed by email, web, text, telephoneabout relevant products and services including tailored special offers, discounts, promotions, events and so on.

Of course, you are free to opt out of hearing from us by any of these channels at any time.

4. To send you relevant, personalised communications by post in relation to updates, offers, services and products. We’ll do this on the basis of our legitimate business interest. You are free to opt out of hearing from us by post at any time.

5. To send you communications required by law or which are necessary to inform you about our changes to the services we provide you. For example, updates to this Privacy Policy, product recall notices, and legally required information relating to your orders. These service messages will not include any promotional content and do not require prior consent when sent by email or text message. If we do not use your personal data for these purposes, we would be unable to comply with our legal obligations.

6. To comply with our contractual or legal obligations to share data with law enforcement.
