Currently only we will contact you for marketing purposes. If in the future we ask a third party approved by us to contact you in order to fulfil the services we provide to you we will ensure that we have a GDPR agreement with that third party regarding the use of any data we supply them about you for the purposes of their contacting you. If we mistakenly email an individual, the individual should use the opt out/ unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email, and inform us of our error at You can opt out of marketing messages at any time by doing one of the following:

Data retention

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. We will actively review the information we hold and when there is no longer a customer, legal or business need for us to hold it, we will either delete it securely or in some cases anonymize it.

By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data).

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Third parties

Although we use third parties to store and process data, we will not sell, share or rent personal information to others except in accordance with this Policy. We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners. Such information is not linked to information that could identify any individual. We partner with third parties to provide specific services. When you sign up for services provided by a third party, we will disclose to the third party only the information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.

We may also use outside shipping companies to ship orders and use a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. We will disclose to such third parties only the information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your Personal Data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your Personal Data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your Personal Data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
