Where we store your personal data

The data that we collect from you may 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. Such staff maybe engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.

We are committed to ensuring that adequate safeguards are in place when transferring Personal Data outside the EEA.  As such, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is adequately protected in accordance with the requirements of UK data protection law.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology.

We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.

Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

We will always retain your personal information in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and never retain your information for longer than is necessary. Unless otherwise required by law, your data will be stored for a period of 2 years after our last contact with you, at which point it will be deleted.
