What Do We DO with YOur INformation?
We will only ever use your data to provide you with a service. Any circumstances where we are sharing your data with third party processors (e.g a courier company) these parties are only processing your data in a way which allows us (ITS) to give you a better shopping experience. These third parties are not able to store or use your data for their own purposes.
We gather personal information to allow us to process your request(s). The relevant information is then used by us, or our third party processors to provide you with the service you have requested and to communicate with you on any matter relating to the provision of the service in general. i.e provide you with product recommendations or helpful guides, or simply allowing you to find the products that you require quickly and easily.
We may also wish to provide you with information about special features of our website or any special service or products which we think may be of interest to you.

We may need to disclose your personal data where we are under a legal duty to comply with any legal obligation or in order to enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions and other agreements. We may also need to disclose it to protect our rights, property or safety of our customers or others which includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

How WE Protect YOur Information
We endeavour to protect the information you provide and have various security procedures in place. We store the information provided to us on our secure servers where it can only be read by authorised personnel. Any payment transactions are encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This protects your data while being sent over the internet from being intercepted and misused by third parties.
To ensure that your credit, debit or charge card is not being used without your consent, we will validate name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third-party databases. By continuing to use our website you accept these terms and conditions and accordingly consent to such checks being made. In performing these checks personal information provided by you may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of that information for payment clearance, credit reference, order fulfilment, delivery, data analysis or customer support. You can rest assured that this is done only to confirm your identity.
Where you have chosen a password, which enables you to access certain parts of our site (your account), you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone. We also recommend that you avoid using the same password for different online accounts. These passwords are encrypted and not visible by us
Retention of Your Data
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances, we may anonymise your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you. Once you are no longer our customer, we will retain and securely destroy your personal information in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
