Use of your information
We use the information held about you to provide our Site and services to you. In addition to this we may use the information for one or more of the following purposes:
We never give your details to third parties to use your data to enable them to provide you with information regarding unrelated goods or services.
Disclosing your information
And under the following circumstance we may also disclose your personal information:
If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our legal obligations under a contract with your and/or any other agreements; or to protect our rights, property, safety, our customers or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
Where we store your personal data
Our Site and services are global and your information (including personal data) may be stored and processed in any country where we have operations or where we engage service providers, and we may transfer your information to countries outside of your country of residence, which may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country of residence.
The personal data that we collect from you may therefore be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers or partners. Such staff or subcontractors may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details or the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing outside of the EEA.
Our Site and Services are accessible via the internet and may potentially be accessed by anyone around the world. Other users may access the Site or Services from outside the EEA. This means that where you chose to post your data on our Site or within the Services, it could be accessed from anywhere around the world and therefore a transfer of your data outside of the EEA may be deemed to have occurred. You consent to such transfer of your data for and by way of this purpose.
Protection of your Information
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any credit card information or payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of the Site or services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share any password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the sending of information via the internet is not totally secure and on occasion such information can be intercepted. We cannot guarantee the security of data that you choose to send us electronically, sending such information is entirely at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Security of personal data

Retaining your personal data
We retain the personal data processed by us for as long as is considered necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. In the absence of specific legal, regulatory or contractual requirements, our baseline retention period is 10 years. However, we may retain personal data for longer where reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations (including law enforcement requests), meet regulatory requirements, maintain security, prevent fraud and abuse, resolve disputes, enforce our legal agreements with, or fulfil your request to “unsubscribe” from further messages from us.
