Sharing your information
We do not, and will not, sell any of your personal data to any third party – including your name, address, email address or credit card information. However, it’s important that you know that we do share your data with third parties and we want you to fully be aware of this so you can understand how and why they use your data if they do.
These third parties are essential partners of ours and they help us provide our services to you. These third parties can be:
- Our partners who are the link between you and us and who make it possible for you to get your orders, such as payment service providers and delivery companies.
- Businesses who help us be better at what we do, such as our ecommerce platform, advertising agencies, shopping partners, website hosts, all of these who help us with our business.
- Credit reference agencies, law enforcement and fraud prevention agencies, so we can help tackle fraud.
We may provide third parties with aggregated but anonymised information and analytics about our customers and, before we do so, we will make sure that it does not identify you.
We ask for your permission before we send you any marketing materials by email, post or text. We just want to let you know about latest products, new trends, competitions and other exciting things we’re up to, so you are always up to date.
- Update your Preferences by logging in to your account
- By clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link in any of our emails
- By contacting [email protected]
Once you do this, we will update your profile to ensure that you don’t receive further marketing messages.
Please note that it might take a few days for all our systems to be updated, so you might get messages from us while we process your request. Stopping marketing messages will not stop service communications such as order updates as these are essential part of completing any purchases.
