Your privacy comes first when you visit our website. So we want to reassure you that we’ll always keep your information secure in line with data protection legislation.
The only time we’ll ever use your information is to gain an insight on how customers use our website – just so we know what’s working and what isn’t. We’ll explain this a bit more below, but you can be sure that we’ll never give your data to anyone else.
Giving us Your Data
As you use our website we’ll occasionally ask for some information about you.
To process your orders, we will ask you for your name, shipping address, billing address, email, phone number and card details.
Making a Payment:
All payment info is handled by Shopify. They use a platform called iframe to make sure no card numbers are ever stored on our own servers.
Creating an Account:
If you’d like to make an account with us, we’ll ask you for your name, address and email. Then we’ll store this information to make any future checkouts quicker and easier for you.
We’ll also set up a temporary cookie so you can access your account. This won’t contain any personal data and will be lost when you close your browser.
Signing up for Marketing Emails:
If you’d like to get our marketing emails we’ll store your name and email address to send you things we think you’ll be interested in. You can opt out of this at any time by clicking unsubscribe at the bottom of any of our emails.
