Processing your Data Using our Legitimate Interests:
We have a number of reasons that we can use (or 'process') your personal data. One of these reasons is referred to as 'legitimate interests'. The following are some examples of when and why we would use this approach during our normal course of business:
To improve and enhance our services: We continually asses website user data to help improve the customer experience, our product portfolio and services offered.
In your best interest: We utilise 3rd party payment platforms that use 3d Secure technology in order to protect against fraud when puschasing through our website.
Personalisation: Where the processing enables us to enhance, modify, personalise or otherwise improve our services/communications for the benefit of our customers.
Website Analytics: To process user data for the purposes of customer analysis, marketing performance analysis on either an individual or aggregated basis.
Market Research: To determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns and to develop our products, services, systems and relationships with customers.
Due Diligence: We may need to conduct investigations on existing customers, potential customers and business partners to determine if those companies and individuals have been involved or convicted of offences such as fraud, bribery and/or corruption.
Direct Marketing: Albeit infrequently, we may send direct marketing materials on occasion. We will also make sure our postal marketing is relevant for you and tailored to your interests. You also have the right to opt-out of receiving this information at any time.
When we process any personal information for our legitimate interests, we will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights under data protection and any other relevant law. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).

We will protect the data that you entrust to us via appropriate security measures and controls. We’ll also ensure as best we can that other businesses we conect to are just as careful with your data.
- We will always take appropriate technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
