As part of the registration process for our e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to send you newsletters and emails; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.


We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails. Our Shopify stores are also connected with Mailchimp in order to transfer email subscriptions from one platform to another and collect statistics. To do this, Mailchimp have installed a tracking snippet on our website.

When someone visits we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. 


When you buy products from our online shop, then we will need to collect some personal details from you in order to process the order and get the products sent to you. We will pass on your name, address and phone number to a courier to deliver the goods. We are selective with couriers and will only choose companies that are GDPR compliant. If you have any questions about deliveries please email and one of our colleagues will be able to answer your questions.



We are always happy to help. Give us a call on 07922034532 07922034532 or use our contact form.
