WHAT INFORMATION I COLLECT FROM YOU
I collect information you give me voluntarily when you enlist my services, place an order, or contact me directly by email, phone, letter or via social media. This information may include your name, address, email address and phone number, or the name, address, email address and phone number of a third party on behalf of whom you are purchasing my goods or services.
My website also collects information about each visit you make using cookies. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your device to help the site provide a better user experience. In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping baskets, and provide anonymised tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics. As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. I suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or looking at https://www.aboutcookies.org/ which offers guidance for all modern browsers
HOW I USE YOUR INFORMATION
I only use your information for the specific purpose indicated at the point of consent i.e. when you provide information voluntarily in order to receive goods, services or information from me. For example, if you have placed an order with me, I may contact you to update you on the status of that order, but you will not receive other communications from me unless you have explicitly asked to receive them.
In order to fulfil my obligations to you when supplying goods, services or information, I will share your information with certain third-party service providers such as couriers and postal services.
All payments made on my website are processed through Stripe and PayPal. These companies process your payment details on my behalf – you can view their data protection policies at https://stripe.com/gb/privacy and https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-prev
I do not store any customer payment information (i.e. debit or credit card details) on my own servers – these details are held in my accounts with Stripe and PayPal and are tokenized, ensuring they cannot be viewed by any third-party, including me.
I take the issue of data security very seriously and have put all reasonable measures in place to prevent your personal information from being lost, stolen or otherwise accessed, altered or transferred without your authorisation.
My website is SSL certificated, which means all data you provide is fully encrypted to prevent it being read by third parties. Your web browser will indicate that my site provides a secure ecommerce environment by showing a locked padlock icon. Once I have received your information I will use strict procedures to keep it secure and safe – please be aware however that the transmission of data via the internet can never be 100% secure and is done entirely at your own risk
Access to your information is strictly limited to those employees and aforementioned third-parties who have a need to know in order for me to fulfil my obligations to you.
I have put processes in place to identify any suspected security breach and will notify you and the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) of any such breach in cases where I am legally required to do so.
WHERE AND HOW YOUR DATA IS STORED
Your data is stored on secure servers hosted in the UK, or, where you have given consent, either by entering payment details to complete a purchase, or by opting in to an email newsletter, it will be handled by our third-party processors both inside and outside the EU to fulfil the specific purpose understood at the point of consent. This includes PayPal (EU) and Stripe (US). Stripe is certified to the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework.
I will retain your data for as long as is necessary to fulfil my obligations to you, or as long as you permit me to keep it. I will review the data I hold on an annual basis and delete any personal information that no longer serves a purpose useful to you.

Right to object to processing – you can request that I stop processing your personal information where you believe your situation warrants it, even though I have a legitimate reason to do so.

You can also object to certain types of processing, e.g. direct marketing and decisions based solely on automated processing
