4. How and why we use personal data
We use personal data to:
a. make our Services available to you;

c. process your orders and refunds.
We need to process your personal data so that we can manage your customer accounts, provide you with the goods and services you want to buy and help you with any orders and refunds you may ask for.
Much of the need for data arises from contractual necessity, for example, purchase & transactions data, contact details, profile details and delivery/collection details. We would not be able to provide you with your products or services if you do not provide us with this information.
We rely on the use of personal data to carry out market research and internal research and development, and to improve our information technology systems (including security) and our product range, services and online activities. This allows us to serve you better as a customer.
Additionally, it is important for us to monitor how our Services are used to detect and prevent fraud, other crimes and the misuse of services. This helps us to make sure that you can safely use our Services.
Personal data may also be used to provide you with relevant marketing communications (including by email, post or online advertising), relating to our products and services, and those of our suppliers or partners. As part of this, online advertising may be displayed on the Website and on other organisations’ websites and online media channels. We may also measure the effectiveness of our marketing communications and those of our suppliers and partners.
We want to ensure that we provide you with relevant marketing communications, including online advertising, that are of interests to you. To achieve this we measure your responses to marketing communications relating to products and services we offer, which also means we can offer you products and services that better meet your needs. You can change your marketing choices, both when you register with us, and at any time after that. You also have choices when it comes to online advertising. We set out below your choices when it comes to cookies, and how you can control your online behavioural advertising preferences. For most marketing communications we rely on your consent (which you can withdraw at any time), however there are situations in which it is in our legitimate interests to use your personal data in that way.
Your data may also be used to make contact directly with you about our Services, for example by phone, email or post or by responding to social media posts that you have directed at us. This helps us to:
a. provide clarification or assistance in response to your communications;
b. manage promotions and competitions you take part in, including those we run with our suppliers and partners; and,
c. invite you to take part in and manage customer surveys, reviews and other market research activities carried out by the Company and by other organisations on our behalf.
If we contact you it is your choice whether or not you participate in the activities. If you tell us that you do not want us to contact you for market research, we will respect this choice. This will not affect your ability to use our Services.
Our “legitimate interests” also benefit from use of your data, for example:
a. to service our customers’ needs, including delivering our products and services;
b. to promote and market our products and services;
c. to service your account, manage complaints and resolve any disputes;
d. to understand our customers including their patterns, behaviours as well as their likes and dislikes;
e. to protect and support our business, colleagues, customers and shareholders;
f. to prevent and detect anti-social, fraud and other crime; and,
g. to test and develop new products and services as well as improve existing ones.
