Your rights

Your principal rights under data protection law are:

  • The right to erasure. Also known as the right to be forgotten. You have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay for any reason. There are a few exceptions to this right, though, if we are complying with a legal obligation or defending against a legal claim.
  • The right to restrict processing. In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. That could happen if you contest the accuracy of the data or we no longer need the data, but you would like it retained for legal reasons.
  • The right to object to processing. If you make such an objection, we shall cease to process the personal information, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds that override your interests.
  • The right to data portability. You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes, including profiling for direct marketing purposes. If you make such an objection, we shall cease to process your personal data for this purpose.

About cookies

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either persistent cookies or session cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before then; whereas a session cookie will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

Google Analytics, a service provider used by us, uses cookies that may be stored on your computer when you visit our website. We may use cookies to identify you when you visit our website, determine if you are logged in and maintain the status of your shopping cart. Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies and to delete them. The methods for doing so vary from browser to browser and from version to version.
