How long we keep information
We keep information for as long as necessary to comply with legislation or to fulfil the purpose for which we collected the information. Order data is currently kept for 7 years according to legal requirements and this timescale will change in line with any new directives.
We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on 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 only use the data you provide to us directly for this purpose.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising.
We only send electronic marketing – such as email marketing – to people who have previously bought products from us, or who have registered with us through the site, competitions, App or newsletters and this is in our legitimate interests. We will always offer a way out of receiving this marketing when you first purchase our products and in every marketing communication afterwards.
We may also send out postal marketing for the purpose of growing our sales which is in our legitimate interests and in this scenario we will rely on you to let us know if you do not want to receive this by opting out of marketing.
We may also send alerts and notifications via the app, in this scenario we will only send these if you allow push and other notifications to appear on your phone.
Where you have not previously bought from us but have registered your details with us (for example by entering a competition or signing up for a newsletter), we will only send you marketing communications if you opted into receiving marketing at the time and so given us your express consent (which you may withdraw at any time).
Where you have registered with us to hear an update when we deliver to your area we will only contact you expressly for this purpose. To receive any other marketing you will need to sign up for our newsletter.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place specific procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online, such as pseudonymisation, encryption, access restrictions and retention policies.
We also ensure that all of your personal information is only stored and handled within the European Union.
