We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising.

We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage, and Profile Data to form a view of what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services, and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing). We do this to ensure you always get a great service fully tailored to your preferences, but if you would prefer we do not use these kinds of profiling techniques you can opt out here or by using the unsubscribe option on any of our marketing messages. If you opt out, you may find your communications from us become less relevant to you

If you wish to opt out of third-party mailings, you can do so at any time either using the My Account section of the website, emailing [email protected], or calling us at 0333 305 2866.



If you unsubscribe or opt out of communications from us, we are not responsible for removing personal data from the lists of any third-party partner or advertiser who has previously been provided your information in accordance with this Policy and with your consent.

Disclosure of your personal data

The personal data you provide to us may be accessed by or given to third parties who act for us for the purposes set out in this Policy or for other purposes approved by you. Those parties process information, fulfill and deliver orders, process credit card payments, and provide support services on our behalf.

In order to identify new customers for our business, we are a member of a number of co-operatives of retail brands in the UK. For this purpose, we work with Epsilon International UK Ltd (trading as Epsilon Abacus) and Conexance (trading as i-Behaviour), both of which are companies that allow retailers and charities who are members of the cooperative to pool and share certain information relating to their customers. The member retailers are active in the clothing, collectibles, food & wine, gardening, gadgets & entertainment, health & beauty, household goods, and home interiors and travel categories.

We share certain information with Abacus / i-Behavior relating to what our customers buy (including Identity, Contact, and Transactional Data). Epsilon Abacus / i-Behaviour use this information in order to build a profile of our customers and combines this with the information that they have received from other member retailers in order to identify suitable prospects to receive an introduction from us via the post. Abacus / i-Behavior may share some personal data belonging to our customers (limited to name and postal address) with other retailers who are members of the cooperative, where they have identified that the relevant customer may be interested in receiving an introduction to the other member retailers by post.

If you would rather your information was not included in this processing you can opt-out at any time using My Account section of the website, emailing [email protected], or calling us at 0333 305 2866.

In addition to the above, we may also share your personal data with the following third parties in the following circumstances:

  • with third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this Policy.
  • if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal or regulatory obligation or request;
  • to enforce or apply our terms and conditions or to investigate potential breaches; and/or
  • to protect the rights, property, or safety of the Company, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Unless required to do so by law, we will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent or as otherwise set out in this Policy.

International Transfers

Many of our external third parties are based outside the UK or European Economic Area (“EEA”) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the UK or EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it (as would be the case in countries within the UK or EEA) by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us by email at [email protected]

Performance of Contract means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.

Complying with a legal or regulatory obligation means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation that we are subject to.


You have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
  • Request the erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully, or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
  • Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
  • Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
  • Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
