How We Share Your Information

We share your information with our core service providers and third party platforms as required for our business to function; for example, fulfilling deliveries, fraud detection, credit risk reduction checks, IT systems support, and internal audits. We also use services offered by Google, Facebook, Instagram and other similar social media platforms to better tailor our marketing communications and for targeted advertising. As part of this process, some personal information, such as your e-mail address, is provided to the relevant third party, however for security purposes this data is “hashed” prior to being shared which means we do not disclose your e-mail but can still enable linking between your social media presence and our Site. We may share your personal data with the police or other companies and organisations assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation and credit risk reduction when permitted or required to by law, or when trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorised transactions, or investigating fraud that has already taken place.

How Long We Keep Your Information

We retain the information you provide for the following periods:

  • for as long as you subscribe to receive marketing information.

  • for as long as your account is being used and for a period of two years after the date you ceased to use your account, after which period we will anonymise the personal information on file by deleting the personal information. If you decide to order again from us after this period this will be treated as a new account and your transaction history will not be available.

How We Store Your Information

Our website is hosted on the Wix.com platform. Wix.com provides us with the online platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data may be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall. 

All direct payment gateways offered by Wix.com and used by our company adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
