Privacy Policy Pledge and GDPR


This privacy policy illustrates the types of information we collect and what this information is used for. If you are unsure about anything in this policy, you can contact us here.

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the GDPR Directive).

Information we collect, and why:

We collect information about you for two reasons: firstly, to process your order and secondly to provide you with the best possible service.

The type of information we collect and store about you includes:

Your name.

Your address, and any alternative delivery addresses.

Your email address.

Your phone number.

Your purchase history.

 

This enables us to fulfill orders that you place with us, and to contact you to arrange delivery or notify you of any problems with your order.

 

We may use previous purchase histories to tailor more relevant offers to you, and avoid duplication of unwanted marketing material.

 

Payment & Credit Card Details:

Our website does not store any of your payment or credit card details - we use Shopify Payments and Paypal, 3rd party providers of secure payment gateway services.
