We will only use your Personal Data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your Personal Data in the following circumstances:
◾ To allow you to register an account

◾ If it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and these are not overridden by your own rights and interests
◾ Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
In order to process personal data, we must have a lawful reason (sometimes called a lawful basis). We always ensure that this is the case, and we set out our lawful bases below – but please note that more than one may apply at any given time: for example, if we inform you of changes to our privacy notice, we may process your personal data on the ground of complying with the law and on the ground of legitimate interests.
We will use your personal data only for the purposes for which we collected it unless we fairly consider that we need it for another reason that is compatible with the original purpose.
Please contact us if you would like more information on this, and on situations in which more than one lawful basis applies.
If you are our customer or applying for a job, we will process your personal data for the following purposes, on the legal basis that it is necessary for us to provide our products and services to you:

◾ To respond to your inquiries
◾ To allow you to register an account or set up a wish list
◾ To the extent necessary to provide you with information you have requested in relation to our products and services before you decide to purchase them

We process your personal information for our legitimate business purposes, which include the following:
◾ To conduct and manage our business
◾ To identify suspicious purchasing activity (for example, where a card has been used for high-volume and/or high-value purchases or where cardholder and deliver addresses differ) – however, we do not make automated decisions on the basis of such profiling

◾ To allow you to review a product you have purchased
◾ To analyse, improve and update our services for the benefit of our customers
◾ To deal with complaints
◾ Where you have made a purchase from us, to let you know about our products, services, promotions or events that we consider may be of interest to you (and which may be tailored to your interests as construed from your purchase history).
◾ We carry out this processing on the legal basis that we have a legitimate interest in marketing our products and services, and only to the extent that we are permitted to do so by applicable direct marketing laws. You can opt-out of receiving this information by unsubscribing from our emails, by returning our catalogues to the address indicated, or by contacting us as set out in the Who We Are section above.
