Saved card details with the payment processor will never be shared with third parties and will only be used to process your order, using our payment partner's systems. Additionally we may also obtain information as a result of authentication or identity checks. Sometimes we may ask for your telephone number. This number may be given to our courier for delivery services. These details allow us to process your order and to let you know the status of your order.

MARKETING BY OTHER COMPANIES
If you agree, we shall pass on your information to data processors and trusted retailers so that they may offer you their products and services. We share your personal data with Experian (http://www.experian.co.uk/marketing-services/consumer-information-portal/) and Conexance (i-Behaviour https://www.i-behavior.com/about-us/news/), who process name, address, mailing preferences and purchase history. We also work with the following data processes.
We work with Epsilon Abacus (registered as Epsilon International UK Ltd), a company that manages the Abacus Alliance on behalf of UK retailers. The participating retailers are active in the clothing, collectables, food & wine, gardening, gadgets & entertainment, health & beauty, household goods, and home interiors categories. They share information on what their customers buy. Epsilon Abacus analyses this pooled information to help the retailers understand consumers’ wider buying patterns. From this information, retailers can tailor their communications, sending people suitable offers that should be of interest to them, based on what they like to buy.
Epsilon Abacus may transfer data outside the EEA. The transfer will take place in the presence of appropriate safeguards, including standard data protection clauses adopted by the EU Commission.
Epsilon Abacus communications are designed to tell you about the benefits we can offer so that you have exclusive access to our best deals. We use the information we have about you to tailor the content and try to ensure that the offers are as relevant to you as possible.
We may also work with different data processor companies (“data processors”) in order to maximise website user engagement. We may share data with data processors about you and how you use our website, including any information that you provide to us. This information is then used for the purposes of providing you with marketing which is more relevant to you and your interests.
We may use a mailing house (“mailing house”) to assist us with postal marketing. The mailing house would manage a co-operative which is made up of brands which engage in postal marketing. These brands share with the mailing house information about individuals, including you, who receive their postal marketing. This information is pooled and analysed by the mailing house so that mailing house can better understand your interests and consumer habits. The result is that your data will be shared with other brands which mailing house thinks you may want to hear from (unless you have opted-out), so that you receive postal marketing which is tailored to you. The types of brand that you are likely to hear from maybe in the retail industry or maybe in other industries, including but not limited to the financial services, charity, or utility industries, but in each case, the data will only be shared for postal marketing purposes.
We may also share data (name & address only) directly with other trusted retailers we think we you will love. If data is shared it is done so on a one time only basis and the company or organisation are not entitled to store your data for further use unless you engage with them.
