The so-called “Cookie Law” requires websites to obtain consent from visitors to store or retrieve any information on a computer or any other web connected device, like a smartphone or tablet.

A cookie is a text file that is used by many websites to identify your computer to their server. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used. This is done in order to make your experience of the website smoother by remembering any preferences or settings from the previous visit. We also track the volume of traffic on our website by using cookies.

We will continue to check and monitor our data protection obligations to ensure they are up to date.


With your permission, we will collect information that you provide to us. This will be in the form of an email address, name, telephone number and address information and will be collected should you sign up to our mailing list, create a customer account, or make a purchase with us. We will hold all order history on file (which will include your contact details) however, if you get in touch and ask us to delete your email address or customer account then this information on you will vanish!


We will use your information for the following purposes:

  • To confirm your order, confirm order despatch, deliver your order, confirm refund where applicable.
  • To assist you with any queries concerning your order.
  • To send you information regarding our company and products that we believe to be of interest to you.
  • For marketing and sales analysis (for example determining which products were best sellers last month).


We never disclose your information in the interest of your privacy. 


We are committed to ensuring your experience on our website is secure and safe. For this reason, we take all the necessary precautions to make sure your information is not lost, stolen, misused or accessed inappropriately. We host our store on Shopify who provide us with an e-commerce platform that allows us to trade and do to to the highest standards of security and privacy.


Like most companies, we use third party providers to assist us with our business functions, for example payment gateways. These third parties will only collect, use and disclose your data as necessary. Most of our third party providers have their own privacy policies which may differ to ours depending on the country they are located in.
