Your privacy is important to us
When you shop with us, we want you to feel confident that your personal information is in safe hands.
Your Personal Information
We, and the companies who work on our behalf collect your information for the purpose of providing you with the products and services you obtain from us, for communicating with you, for enhancing your online experience, and so we can better understand our customers and consumers in general. This includes the information you give us, the information we acquire from third parties and which is generated by you – including your use of this website and how you arrived at our website in the first place. We also record calls for monitoring and training purposes, and store customer feedback and information on our customer information database.
We, and the advertising companies which work on our behalf may serve you adverts on other websites about things which you’ve shown an interest in on our own website, or relating to campaigns you have interacted with. This is called retargeting advertising.
We know that our customers would like to easily find the content on our website that they’re most interested in, so we may tailor parts of our website and our communications to things which you’ve shown a previous interest in.
We know that many of our customers like to communicate with their social networks while on our website – so we have the plugins and tools available to allow this. This means social network companies may collect information on you from this site.
You can find out more about retargeting advertising, the tailoring of our website and communications, and the plugins and tools relating to social networks, as well as how to control them, here.
