UK Data Protection Law requires a legal basis for using personal data to be established  Our basis varies depending on the specific purpose for which we use personal data.  The legal bases we use to undertake processing of personal data include:

• Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you

When you create an account on our Site, buy a product or service from us, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us.

In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal data.

We may use it in order to:

i. verify your identity for security purposes

ii. sell products to you

iii. provide you with our services

iv. provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most from using our Site

We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract.

• Information we process with your consent

Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our Site or ask us to provide you more information about our business, including our products and services, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal data.

Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information, for example, by asking you to agree to our use of cookies.

If you have given us explicit permission to do so, we may from time to time pass your name and contact information to selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products you would find useful.

i. whether the same objective could be achieved through other means

ii. whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm

iii. whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would, in the round, consider it reasonable to do so


For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:

i. record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our business.

ii. responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response

iii. protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party

iv. insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage business risk

v. protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so

Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
