You have the right to object to processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes. You can unsubscribe from receiving marketing communications from us by using the unsubscribe methods contained in communications we send to you or by contacting us. Please see the section titled Contact Information. 

Where you opt out of receiving marketing communications this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of registering for or using our service, your service experience or other interactions with this website.

By submitting your email address on our website, you consent to receive emails from us. You can unsubscribe from these email lists at any time by clicking the opt-out link or other unsubscribe option included in the respective email. 

We do not send unsolicited commercial emails, as we share your aversion to spam. Submitting your email address also permits us to utilise it for customer audience targeting on platforms such as Facebook, where we display custom advertising to specific individuals who have opted-in to receive communications from us.

Our mailing list is refreshed annually, and if there has been no activity during that period, your data will be deleted from our system. You can opt out of receiving such information at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in emails or contacting us.

Marketing Partners: We share both personal and non-personal information collected with third parties, including advertisers, contest sponsors, promotional and marketing partners, and providers of content or products and services we believe may interest you.

Merger & Sales: We share such information with our current and future affiliated companies and business partners. In the event of a merger, asset sale, or other business reorganisation, we may transfer your personal and non-personal information to our successors-in-interest.

Trusted Third-Party Service Providers: who may be engaged to perform various functions and services for us, such as server hosting, database management, email management, marketing, credit card processing, customer service, and order fulfilment for products and services you may purchase through our website or platforms.

Analytics and Technical Partners: Portions of our log file data, including IP addresses, may be shared with third parties for analytics purposes, including web analytics partners, application developers, and ad networks. If your IP address is shared, it may be used to estimate general location and other technographics, such as connection speed, and device type used to access the service. This information may be aggregated for auditing, research, and reporting purposes for us and our advertisers.

Legal Obligations: We disclose personal and non-personal information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties if, at our sole discretion, we believe it is necessary or appropriate to respond to claims or legal processes (such as subpoenas) to protect our rights, interests, or those of a third party, safeguard public safety or any individual, prevent or halt illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activities, or comply with applicable court orders, laws, rules, and regulations.

We transfer and process your personal data outside of the United Kingdom/European Union to countries where data protection laws are less stringent than those in the UK/EU. When we transfer your personal data outside of the UK/ EU, we only do so to entities that offer our users the same level of data protection as that afforded by the UK Data Protection Act 2018, UK GDPR and the EU GDPR.

  1. We will only transfer your personal information to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal information; or
  2. We will use specific contracts approved for use in the UK or EU which give personal information the same protection it has in the UK/EU. For example, the use of Article 46 UK and EU GDPR safeguard mechanisms to transfer personal data endorsed by the UK Government or European Commission.

To find out more about the transfer mechanism used please contact us. Please see the section titled Contact Information.

We employ physical, electronic, and managerial measures to safeguard the security of your information. These measures are in place to prevent unauthorised access, maintain data security, and ensure the appropriate use of your information. 

We employ various security measures to safeguard your personal information when you place orders or submit, access, or enter your personal data. 

We offer a secure server for these transactions. All sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, encrypted into our Payment gateway provider’s database, and accessible only to authorised personnel who are bound by confidentiality obligations.

Following a transaction, sensitive information (e.g., credit card details, social security numbers) is not stored on our servers. Nonetheless, we cannot guarantee absolute security for information you transmit to us or ensure that your information on the Service remains invulnerable to breaches, despite our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

However, no security system, including encryption systems, is infallible. People can commit intentional crimes, make errors, or neglect to adhere to policies. Therefore, while we make reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee absolute security. 

If applicable law imposes any non-disclaimable duty to protect your personal information, you agree that intentional misconduct will be the standard used to assess our compliance with that duty.

We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

We may anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under Data Protection Laws. You can:

Request access to your personal data: This is known as a “data subject access request” and enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you.

Request correction of your personal data: This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.

Request erasure of your personal data: This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. Note: We may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you at the time of your request.

Object to processing of your personal data: This is where we are processing your personal data based on a legitimate interest or those of a third party and you may challenge this. However, we may be entitled to continue processing your information based on our legitimate interests or where this is relevant to any legal claims. Please see the section of this notice titled Marketing Communications. 

Request restriction of processing your personal information: This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the information’s accuracy (b) where our use of the information is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it (c) where you need us to hold the information even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims or (d) you have objected to our use of your information but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Request transfer of your personal information (“data portability”): This is where in some circumstances we will provide to you or a third party you have chosen your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format.

Right to withdraw consent: This is where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. This will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. Depending on the processing activity, if you withdraw your consent we may not be able to provide certain services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

Automated decision making: This is where decisions are made about you by automated means. We do not carry out automated decision making.

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us. If you wish to update your personal data please contact us.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data or to exercise any of the other rights. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. 

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal information or to exercise any of your other rights. This is a security measure to ensure that personal information 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.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us.

We would appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns in the first instance. Please see the Contact Information section below. If you have unresolved concerns and you live or work in the UK or believe that a personal data breach happened in the UK you have the right to complain at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk). 

If you live or work outside the UK or you have a complaint concerning our personal data processing activities you may lodge a complaint with another supervisory authority.
