Our use of personal data

1.1   In this section we have set out:

       (a)   the kinds of personal data that we may collect, use, store and transfer. We have grouped that data together into different categories based on its subject matter;

       (b)   our purposes in processing that data; and

       (c)    in each case, the legal basis of our processing. The legal basis means one of the permitted based for processing set out in Article 6 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) under which we conduct the relevant processing.

Personal data we obtain from you

Account data

1.1           We may process the personal data you provide to us in registering for an account on our Site, which may include your name, email address, phone number and address. We all this account data. We use this to operate the Site, provide our products and services, ensure the security of our Site, and communicating with you.          

 Order data

1.2           We may process the personal data provided to us in order to make and deliver orders for our products. This might include the name, email address, phone number and address and the person ordering and the person receiving the order. It might also include personal data provided to us in order to make personalized products, such as impressions of fingerprints, handprints or footprints, or photographs. We call all of this order data, and we use it to prepare and fulfil orders placed with us.

 Correspondence data

1.3           We may process personal data contained in or relating to any communication that you send to us, whether through the Site, by email, or otherwise. All of this together is correspondence data. This may include the communication content and metadata associated with the communication, as well as any contact details you provide to us such as your name, email address, phone number, job title or address. We process correspondence data for the purposes of communicating with you and record-keeping. If you are a customer of ours, or have indicated your interest in our products, services or business, then we may also process correspondence data for the purposes of addressing your enquiry and providing you with occasional news about our products and services (although we will always allow you to opt out of receiving marketing communications). 

Supplier data

1.4           If we do business with you or your organisation, whether as a supplier or some other form of commercial partner (like a referrer or distributor), then we may process personal data such as your contact details for the purposes of that business relationship. We may also process personal data within related correspondence and documents such as proposals or contracts, whether created by us or provided to us. We call all of this supplier data, and we process it for the purposes of administering our business relationships and for record-keeping.

 Transaction data

1.5           We may process personal data relating to transactions, such as bank account details, contact details or transaction data in relation to payments made by us to you or by you to us (transaction data). This may include your contact details, any bank account or sort code information provided for the purposes of making payment, and the transaction details (such as POs or invoices). The transaction data may be processed for the purpose of supplying or receiving the relevant products or services, making and receiving payments and record-keeping. Importantly, if you are one of our customers we will not receive your credit or debit card details – these will be received only by our payment processing service providers as described below.

Usage data

1.6           We may process data about your use of the Site (usage data). This may include your geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views and website navigation paths, as well as information about the timing, frequency and pattern of your use. This data is aggregated and anonymised in such a way that it contains no information relating to any identifiable individual: it’s not actually personal data but we mention it in this Policy for the sake of completeness. We process usage data for the purpose of improving our Site.

Facebook Pixel

1.7            Our Site uses Facebook Pixel. This is a tracking pixel which identifies visitors who have come to the Site and which targets Facebook advertisements at those visitors. We do not have access to any personal data gathered via Facebook Pixel – this data is gathered and used only by Facebook, who is data controller in relation to that personal data and whose use of that personal data is governed by Facebook’s own terms.

Personal data we obtain from others

1.8           Your personal data may be provided to us by someone other than you: for example, by a family member who is purchasing a gift for you or a personalised product, or by a third party business with whom we both deal (e.g. if you’re a supplier of ours then your employer might ask us to contact you and might provide us with your contact details). Normally this data will be order data, correspondence data, or supplier data as described above and will be processed by us for the purposes described above.

Our other processing

1.9           We may also process any of the data described above:

(a)             for the purposes of record-keeping and back-up and restoration of our systems;

(b)             as required by law or in connection with legal claims.

Our legal basis of processing

1.10        We will process personal data only on lawful bases. In particular, we will process personal data on the following lawful bases identified in Article 6 GDPR:

(c)             for the performance of a contract with you, or to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you (Article 6(1)(b) GDPR). This may be our basis for processing account data, order data, correspondence data, or transaction data;

(d)             for our legitimate interests (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR). This may be our basis for processing:

i)           account, order, correspondence and supplier data (as we have an interest in properly administering our business and communications, and in developing our business with interested parties);

ii)         transaction data (as we have an interest in making and receiving payments promptly and in recovering debts);

iii)        any personal data identified in this Policy where necessary in connection with legal claims (as we have an interest in the protection and assertion of our and your legal rights and the legal rights of others); and

iv)        any personal data identified in this Policy in connection with backups of any element of our IT systems or databases containing that personal data (as we have an interest in ensuring the resilience of our IT systems and the integrity and recoverability of our data).

1.11        We may also process any of your personal data where necessary for compliance with law (Article 6(c) GDPR).

  1. Providing your personal data to others

2.1           We may disclose your personal data to our insurers and/or professional advisers as necessary for the purposes of obtaining and maintaining insurance coverage, managing risks, obtaining professional advice and managing legal disputes.

2.2           We may disclose personal data to our suppliers or subcontractors in connection with the uses described above. For example, we may disclose:

(a)             any personal data in our possession to suppliers which host the servers on which our data is stored;

You should review their privacy policies for further information;

(c)             correspondence data to email marketing providers; and

(d)             transaction data and other relevant personal data to third parties for the purposes of fraud protection, credit risk reduction and debt recovery.

  1. International transfers of your personal data

Some of the third parties to whom we may transfer your personal data, discussed above, may be located outside the EEA or may transfer your personal data to their own service providers located outside the EEA. If so, then we will ensure that transfers by our appointed data processors will only be made lawfully (e.g. to countries in respect of which the European Commission has made an "adequacy decision”, or with appropriate safeguards such as the use of standard clauses approved by the European Commission or the use of the EU-US Privacy Shield). You may contact us if you would like further information about these safeguards.

  1. Data security

4.1           We take appropriate technical and organisational security measures to prevent your personal data from being lost, used, accessed, altered or disclosed by accident or without authorisation.

4.2           If we become aware of any personal data breach, then we will notify you and the ICO as required by law.

  1. Retaining and deleting personal data

5.1           We will only process your personal data as long as is needed for the purposes for which we process it, and will delete it afterwards. In particular:

(a)             usage data which is anonymised (and therefore not personal data) may be retained by us indefinitely (but is typically deleted within a few months);

(b)             communications data which relates only to enquiries and not to a business relationship will be retained for the period of the enquiry or chain of correspondence and then deleted after approximately twelve months;

(c)             order, supplier and transaction data, and communications data relating to our business relationship with you, will be retained for approximately seven years after the end of the relevant business relationship;

(d)             any personal data provided to us to produce personalised products will be retained for approximately twelve months after fulfilment of the order and will then be deleted.

5.2           We may retain your personal data longer where necessary to comply with law or in special circumstances permitted by law (e.g. to defend legal claims). When we back up our systems then data may be stored temporarily in the back-up beyond its usual retention period. However, that data will be overwritten or deleted in making subsequent back-ups.

  1. Your legal rights under GDPR

6.1           We have summarized below the rights that you have under data protection law. You can read guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office at for more information. You have:

(a)             the right to access: if requested, we must confirm what personal data of yours we process, and must provide you with access to that data and further information about our processing;

(b)             the right to rectification: if requested, we must correct or complete any inaccurate or incomplete personal data of yours;

(c)             the right to erasure: you can request that we erase your personal data in limited circumstances (for instance, if we use it for marketing or no longer need it for our other purposes). This is not an absolute right and we may be entitled to retain your data where necessary (e.g. to comply with law);

(d)             the right to restrict processing: you can request that we restrict the processing of your personal data in limited circumstances. Where processing has been restricted, we may continue to store your personal data and will observe the restrictions on processing except in the case of processing permitted by applicable law (for example, in connection with legal claims or for reasons of public interest);

(e)             the right to object to processing: you can object to our processing of your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests. We may be entitled to continue processing in certain circumstances (e.g. if we have compelling grounds to do so, or to comply with law);

(f)              the right to data portability: you have a right to receive your data from us in an easily-portable format in limited circumstances: i.e. if we process that data on the basis of a contract with you and by automated means. This is unlikely to apply in most circumstances; and

(g)             the right to complain: if you believe we are in breach of applicable law, you can complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office. For more information, see

6.2           You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by written notice to us.
