In essence we will process your personal data in order to deliver the products to you and provide you with the best possible service. Data that we no longer require and are not legally required to keep will not be kept.
We will only share your data with 3rd parties for two reasons:
- If we have to for compliance reasons or if it is essential for us in our commitment to deliver our service to you. The first reason is e.g. NHS to legally dispense your prescriptions
- E.g. couriers who need your contact details in order to deliver your packages.
That is it.
If we share your information with other parties than what we listed we will do this completely anonymised. This means that your name, address contact details or other sensitive data will be manipulated so it cannot be traced to a specific person before we share the data. We feel this is the fairest way to do it. No dodgy company will ever receive your name and you can stay assured we will keep all your information safe.
If you don’t want any such anonymised data to be collected, you can turn on the Do Not Track setting in your browser. This disables all non-essential data collection - we still have to keep track of your basket etc. You currently have the Do Not Track setting turned off.
We also avoid irrelevant marketing messages as that simply is not us.
We do comply with all regulations for data protection and if you want to know exactly how we do this, keep reading to view our privacy notice in its entirety.
