3. What Does This Policy Cover?
4. What Is Personal Data?
Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (collectively, “the Data Protection Legislation”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.
5. What Are My Rights?
Under the Data Protection Legislation, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:
b) The right to access the personal data we hold about you. Part 13 will tell you how to do this.
c) The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact us.
d) The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we hold. Please contact us.
e) The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.
f) The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.
g) The right to withdraw consent. This means that, if we are relying on your consent as the legal basis for using your personal data, you are free to withdraw that consent at any time.
h) The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal data to us directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.
i) Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. We do not use your personal data in this way.
For more information about our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact us.
It is important that your personal data is kept accurate and up-to-date. If any of the personal data we hold about you changes, please keep us informed as long as we have that data.
Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office. We would welcome the opportunity to resolve your concerns ourselves, however, so please contact us first.
6) What Data Do You Collect and How?
We do not collect any ‘special category’ or ‘sensitive’ personal data AND/OR personal data relating to children AND/OR data relating to criminal convictions and/or offences.
We do not collect payment information from you as all payments are processed by our third party commercial payment processor, and you should consult their legal terms for further information on how they will handle your personal data.
7. How Do You Use My Personal Data?
Under the Data Protection Legislation, we must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. The following table describes how we may use your personal data, and our lawful bases for doing so:
With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email (or any other method we may decide from time-to-time) with information, news, and offers on our products. You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam. We will always work to fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under the Data Protection Legislation and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, and you will always have the opportunity to opt-out. We will always obtain your express opt-in consent before sharing your personal data with third parties for marketing purposes and you will be able to opt-out at any time.
Third Parties whose content appears on Our Site may use third-party Cookies, as mentioned below in Part 14. Please refer to Part 14 for more information on controlling cookies. Please note that we do not control the activities of such third parties, nor the data that they collect and use themselves, and we advise you to check the privacy policies of any such third parties.
We may transfer your data to third parties such as Wix, Google and Mailchimp and others, who provide services to us from time-to-time that we require in order to provide our products and services to you.
We may allow Facebook Pixel to collect anonymised data that enables Facebook to tailor ads on your Facebook wall to reflect your buying preferences on our Site and others.
We may use a behavioural analytics service such as Hotjar to collect non-personalised data on users and their activities to allow us to optimise our Site to customer needs.
We will only use your personal data for the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected unless we reasonably believe that another purpose is compatible with that or those original purpose(s) and need to use your personal data for that purpose. If we do use your personal data in this way and you wish us to explain how the new purpose is compatible with the original, please contact us.
If we need to use your personal data for a purpose that is unrelated to, or incompatible with, the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected, we will inform you and explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
In some circumstances, where permitted or required by law, we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent. This will only be done within the bounds of the Data Protection Legislation and your legal rights.
8. How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?
We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected, and for no more than six (6) years after your last transaction with us.
9. How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?
We may store or transfer some or all of your personal data outside the UK and in countries that are not part of the European Economic Area (the “EEA” consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein). These are known as “third countries” and may not have data protection laws that are as strong as those in the UK and/or the EEA. This means that we will take additional steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the Data Protection Legislation as follows.
We will only transfer your personal data to third countries whose levels of data protection are deemed ‘adequate’ by the European Commission.
Please contact us for further information about the particular data protection mechanisms used by us when transferring your personal data to a third country.
The security of your personal data is essential to us, and to protect your data, we take a number of important measures, including the following:
limiting access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties with a legitimate need to know and ensuring that they are subject to duties of confidentiality; and,
procedures for dealing with data breaches (the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, your personal data) including notifying you and/or the Information Commissioner’s Office where we are legally required to do so.
10. Do You Share My Personal Data?
We will not share any of your personal data with any third parties for any purposes, subject to the following exceptions.
We use third parties such as Wix Payments and other commercial payment processors, Wix, Google Analytics, Mailchimp, Facebook, HotJar and similar providers to provide services to us that are essential to the smooth running of our Site. Our use of these services may involve transferring your personal data and other non-identifying data to these providers, who will retain your data in a secure manner under terms similar to those agreed in this Policy.
In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
If any of your personal data is shared with a third party, as described above, we will take steps to ensure that your personal data is handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the third party’s obligations under the law, as described above in Part 9.
If any personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, we will take suitable steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the Data Protection Legislation, as explained above in Part 9.
In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
11. How Can I Control My Personal Data?
11.1 In addition to your rights under the Data Protection Legislation, set out in Part 5, when you submit personal data via Our Site, you may be given options to restrict our use of your personal data. In particular, we aim to give you strong controls on our use of your data for direct marketing purposes (including the ability to opt-out of receiving emails from us which you may do by unsubscribing using the links provided in our emails).
11.2 You may also wish to sign up to one or more of the preference services operating in the UK: The Telephone Preference Service (“the TPS”), the Corporate Telephone Preference Service (“the CTPS”), and the Mailing Preference Service (“the MPS”). These may help to prevent you receiving unsolicited marketing. Please note, however, that these services will not prevent you from receiving marketing communications that you have consented to receiving.
12. Can I Withhold Information?
You may access certain areas of Our Site without providing any personal data at all.
13. How Can I Access My Personal Data?
If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.
All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown on our Site.
There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.
We will respond to your subject access request within thirty (30) calendar days and, in any case, not more than one (1) month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.

7.1.1 images of Goods and Bespoke Goods are for illustrative purposes only.

7.5 When placing an Order for Bespoke Goods, please ensure that all information that you provide to Us is correct, accurate, and complete. We cannot accept the return of any Bespoke Goods if that return is due to incorrect information provided by you. Please note that this does not affect your legal rights.

7.7 Minor changes may, from time-to-time, be made to certain Goods and/or Bespoke Goods between your Order being placed and Us processing that Order and dispatching the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods - for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, or to address particular technical or security issues. Any such changes will not change any of the main characteristics of the Goods or Bespoke Goods and will not normally affect your use of those Goods and/or Bespoke Goods. However, if any change is made that would affect your use of the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods, suitable information will be provided to you.
7.8 We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on Our Site are correct at the time of going online. We reserve the right to change prices and to add, alter, or remove special offers from time-to-time and as necessary.
7.9 All prices are checked by Us before We accept your Order. In the unlikely event that We have shown incorrect pricing information, We will contact you in writing to inform you of the mistake. If the correct price is lower than that shown when you made your Order, we will simply charge you the lower amount and continue processing your Order. If the correct price is higher, We will give you the option to purchase the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods at the correct price or to cancel your Order (or the affected part of it). We will not proceed with processing your Order in this case until you respond.

8. Orders – How Contracts Are Formed
8.1 Our Site will guide you through the ordering process. Before submitting your Order you will be given the opportunity to review your Order and amend it. Please ensure that you have checked your Order carefully before submitting it. In particular, if you are ordering Bespoke Goods, please check the details you have provided carefully as We may not be able to accommodate changes once we have begun customising your Bespoke Goods.
8.2 If, during the order process, you provide Us with incorrect or incomplete information, please contact Us as soon as possible. If We are unable to process your Order due to incorrect or incomplete information, We will contact you to ask to correct it. If you do not give us the accurate or complete information within a reasonable time of Our request, We will cancel your Order and treat the Contract as being at an end. If We incur any costs as a result of your incorrect or incomplete information, We may pass those costs on to you.
8.3 No part of Our Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your Order constitutes a contractual offer that We may, at Our sole discretion, accept. Our acknowledgement of receipt of your Order does not mean that we have accepted it. Our acceptance is indicated by Us sending you an Order Confirmation by email. Only once We have sent you an Order Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and you.
8.4 Order Confirmations shall contain the following information:
8.4.1 your Order Number;
8.4.2 confirmation of the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods ordered including full details of the main characteristics of those Goods and/or Bespoke Goods;
8.4.3 fully itemised pricing for the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods ordered including, where appropriate, taxes, delivery and other additional charges; and,
8.4.4 estimated delivery date(s).
8.5 We may also include a paper copy of the Order Confirmation with your Goods and/or Bespoke Goods when they are delivered.
8.6 In the unlikely event that We do not accept or cannot fulfil your Order for any reason, We will explain why in writing. No payment will be taken under normal circumstances. If We have taken payment any such sums will be refunded to you as soon as possible and in any event within thirty (30) days.
8.7 Any refunds due under this Clause 8 will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods.
Payment for Goods and/or Bespoke Goods and related delivery charges must always be made in advance and you will be prompted to pay during the order process. Your chosen payment method will be charged by our third party payment processor when your Order is confirmed. You may also be required to pay a transaction fee to our third party payment processor, for which you will be liable and responsible.
10. Delivery, Risk and Ownership
10.1 All Goods purchased through Our Site will normally be delivered within thirty (30) calendar days after the date of Our Order Confirmation unless otherwise agreed or specified during the Order process (subject to delays caused by events outside of Our control, for which see Clause 14). Please note that Bespoke Goods may take longer and that We will normally provide further information during the Order process.
10.2 We may also offer a click and collect service from our main trading address. Please refer to our Site for more information.
10.3 All deliveries will be made by Royal Mail or our delivery services provider (except that if your delivery address is local to our main trading address, we may undertake delivery ourselves). Delivery dates provided are indicative only.
10.4 If We are unable to deliver the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods on the delivery date, the following will apply:
10.4.1 if no one is available at your delivery address to receive the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods and the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods cannot be posted through your letterbox or left in a safe place nominated by you, We will leave a delivery note explaining how to rearrange delivery or where to collect the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods;
10.4.2 if you do not collect the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods or rearrange delivery within fourteen (14) days, We will contact you to ask you how you wish to proceed. If we cannot contact you or arrange redelivery or collection, We will treat the Contract as cancelled and recover the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods. If this happens, in the case of Goods, you will be refunded the purchase price of those Goods themselves, but not the cost of delivery. In the case of Bespoke Goods, no refunds will be given. We may also bill you for any reasonable additional cost that we incur in recovering the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods.
10.5 In the unlikely event that We fail to deliver the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods within thirty (30) calendar days of Our Order Confirmation (or as otherwise agreed or specified as under sub-Clause 10.1), and you do not wish to cancel, you may specify a new (reasonable) delivery date. If We fail to meet the new deadline, you may then treat the Contract as being at an end.
10.6 You may cancel all or part of your Order under sub-Clause 10.5 provided that separating the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods in your Order would not significantly reduce their value. Any sums that you have already paid for cancelled Goods and/or Bespoke Goods and their delivery will be refunded to you within thirty (30) calendar days. Please note that if any cancelled Goods and/or Bespoke Goods are delivered to you, you must return them to Us or arrange with Us for their collection. In either case, We will bear the cost of returning the cancelled Goods and/or Bespoke Goods.
10.7 Risk in the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods will pass to you on despatch (or on collection, if you decide to make use of our click and collect service, if and when available).
10.8 Delivery shall be deemed complete once We have delivered the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods to the address you have provided (or on collection by you, if you use click and collect).
10.9 Ownership of the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods passes to you once we have received payment in full of all sums due (including any applicable delivery charges).
10.10 Any refunds due under this Clause 10 will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods.
11. Faulty, Damaged or Incorrect Goods
11.1 By law, We must provide goods that are of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose (though we do not warrant that the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods are suitable for any specific purpose), as described at the time of purchase, in accordance with any pre-contract information We have provided, and that match any samples or models that you have seen or examined (unless We have made you aware of any differences). If any digital content is included in the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods, that digital content must also conform. If any Goods and/or Bespoke Goods you have purchased do not comply and, for example, have faults or are damaged when you receive them, or if you receive incorrect (or incorrectly priced) Goods and/or Bespoke Goods, please contact Us as soon as reasonably possible to inform Us of the fault, damage or error, and to arrange for a refund, repair or replacement. Please note that if Bespoke Goods are incorrect as a result of your provision of incorrect information, rather than them not matching Our description, as explained in sub-Clause 7.5, you will not be able to return those Bespoke Goods. Otherwise, your available remedies will be as follows:
11.1.1 beginning on the day that you receive the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods (and ownership of them) you have a thirty (30) calendar day right to reject them and to receive a full refund if they do not conform as stated above;
11.1.2 if you do not wish to reject the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods, or if the thirty (30) calendar day rejection period has expired, you may request a replacement. We will bear any associated costs and will provide the replacement within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience to you. In certain circumstances, where a replacement is impossible or otherwise disproportionate, We may instead offer you a full refund. If you request a replacement during the thirty (30) calendar day rejection period, that period will be suspended while We provide the replacement and will resume on the day that you receive the replacement Goods and/or Bespoke Goods. If less than seven (7) calendar days remain out of the original period, it will be extended to seven (7) calendar days;
11.1.3 If, after a replacement, the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods still do not conform (or if We cannot do so as previously described, or have failed to act within a reasonable time or without significant inconvenience to you), you may have the right either to keep them at a reduced price, or to reject them in exchange for a refund;
11.1.4 If you exercise the final right to reject the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods more than six (6) months after you have received them (and ownership of them), We may reduce any refund to reflect the use that you have had out of the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods;
11.1.5 Within a period of six (6) years after you have received the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods (and ownership of them), if the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods do not last a reasonable length of time, you may be entitled to a partial refund. Please be aware that after six (6) months have passed since you received the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods, the burden of proof will be on you to prove that the defect or non-conformity existed at the time of delivery.
11.2 Please note that you will not be eligible to claim under this clause 11 if We informed you of the fault(s), damage or other problems with the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods before you purchased them (and it is because of the same issue that you now wish to return them); if you have purchased the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods for an unsuitable purpose that is neither obvious nor made known to Us and the problem has resulted from your use of the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods for that purpose; or if the problem is the result of normal wear and tear, misuse or intentional or careless damage. Please also note that you may not return Goods and/or Bespoke Goods to Us under this Clause 11 merely because you have changed your mind. Please refer to Clause 12 for more details.
11.3 To return Goods and/or Bespoke Goods to Us for any reason under this Clause 11, please contact Us to arrange for a collection and return. We will be fully responsible for the costs of returning Goods and/or Bespoke Goods under this Clause 11 and will reimburse you where appropriate.
11.4 Refunds (whether full or partial, including reductions in price) under this Clause 11 will be issued within fourteen (14) calendar days of the day on which We agree that you are entitled to the refund.
11.5 Any and all refunds issued under this Clause 11 will include all delivery costs paid by you when the Goods and/or Bespoke Goods were originally purchased.
11.6 Refunds under this Clause 11 will be made using the same payment method that you used when making your Order.
12. Cancelling and Returning Goods if You Change Your Mind
12.1 If you are a consumer, you may have a legal right to a “cooling-off” period within which you can cancel the Contract for any reason, subject to the exceptions stated below. This period begins once your Order is complete and We have sent you your Order Confirmation, i.e. when the Contract between you and Us is formed. You may also cancel for any reason before We send the Order Confirmation.
12.2 If you wish to exercise your right to cancel under this Clause 12, you must inform Us of your decision within the cooling-off period. You may do so in any way you wish. Cancellation by email or by post is effective from the date on which you send Us your message. Please note that the cooling-off period lasts for whole calendar days. If, for example, you send Us an email or letter by 23:59:59 on the final day of the cooling-off period, your cancellation will be valid and accepted.
