  • For legal reasons (like paying taxes)

All payment information is managed and secured by external payment transaction providers: Stripe, PayPal and ApplePay (depending on your chosen payment method). Payment information is never received, collected or held by us. 

Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

As MailChimp is our chosen mailing list integration provider, all personal data given, i.e. name and email address, are stored securely by MailChimp.

All details are taken in compliance with UK Spam Laws detailed in the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003. All personal details relating to subscriptions are held securely and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. 

MailChimp certify that they follow the principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. 

When we send emails via MailChimp, we'll sometimes track who opened the emails and who clicked the links. We do that to measure our Email Campaigns’ performance and to improve our features for specific segments of our subscribers. To do this, we include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails we send. Web beacons allow us to collect information about when subscribers open the email, their IP address, their browser or email client type, and other similar details. We use the data from those Web Beacons to create reports about who has or hasn’t opened emails or clicked links.

In compliance with UK Spam Laws and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 subscribers are given the opportunity to unsubscribe at any time through an automated system. This process is detailed at the footer of each email campaign.

External Links:

When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

Your Consent:

While we make every effort to ensure that any personal information we collect from you is kept secure and processed lawfully, the internet is not a totally secure medium. If you do not agree with this policy, you should not submit your personal information on this website.

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website.
