We will obtain your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.


We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.

If you wish to find out more about how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please email us at:

If we need to use your personal data for a purpose unrelated to the purpose for which we collected the data, we will notify you and we will explain the legal ground of processing.

We may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent where this is required or permitted by law.


We may be required to share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in the table above:

We only allow such third parties to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.


We only transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area for the purposes of conducting trade on your behalf with manufacturers or suppliers of goods ordered by you. This would normally include your company name, address and telephone number, as required for order processing and despatch.


We have in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.

In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know such data.

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.
In some circumstances:

  • you can ask us to delete your data: see below for further information.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights).

This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
