Privacy We take your privacy very seriously. When using our site, we want our customers to feel confident that their personal information and credit card data is protected. In the same way as we are dedicated to bringing you the very best products, we are equally committed to providing our customers with a safe and secure shopping experience.

Personal data

Information is collected about you when you place an order such as your email address, invoice/delivery address and telephone number so that your order may be successfully fulfilled and that you may be contacted to update on the progress of your order. We do not share or store any financial details (credit/debit card information).

We take appropriate precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure this information is not lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. To protect your personal information, when you place an online order and provide your payment card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully and will not pass it onto third parties, or send you marketing emails unless you have chosen to receive updates by signing up to our mailing list. We will not email you in the future unless you have given us your consent, or it is directly relevant to an order you have placed. You can also unsubscribe to our mailing list at any time, either by using the unsubscribe button on our newsletters or by contacting us and asking to be removed.

With larger parcels or pieces of furniture, we use a courier service and for this, customer information such as name, address, email address and telephone number will be entered onto their online booking system in order to organise the delivery successfully. We use a combination of courier services, DPD, Parcel Force and are own trustworthy local courier who all have their own GDPR Privacy Policy.

Our online store is hosted by wordpress, who provide us with an online ecommerce platform woo commerce. Your data is stored securely through wordpress data storage and databases behind a firewall.
