Why we value your privacy
We value your privacy as much as we do our own, so we’re committed to keeping your personal and business information safe. We’re uncomfortable with the information companies, governments, and other organisations keep on file, so we ask for only the bare minimum from our customers. We’ll never use your personal information for any reason other than why you gave it, and we’ll never give anyone access to it unless we’re forced to by law.
How we collect information
We ask for contact information including your name, email address, on our website so that we can reply to your enquiry.
We collect your email address when you sign up for one of our newsletters.
We ask for your account and contact information when you buy something from us.
Occasionally, we might receive your contact information from one of our partners. If we do, we protect it in exactly the same way as if you give it to us directly.
What information we hold
- When you contact us by email or through our website, we collect your name, email address, possibly phone number, possibly a social media username, and possibly the company you work for, if you’ve given us that.
- If you sign up for a newsletter, we only collect your email address and your name.
- When you buy something from us, we collect your name, email address, phone number, and a delivery address.
- If you do business with us, we also collect your business name and bank details and keep records of the invoices we send you and the payments you make.
Where we store your information
When you contact us by email or through our website, we store your your information in Hubspot, our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software. If you sign up for a newsletter, we store your email address in Hubspot, which is the marketing platform we prefer. When you buy something, your information is stored in on Google Drive, and if we do business, we store your information in our accounts software, which also is Hubspot. We chose these systems partly for their commitment to security. And we have signed Data Processing Agreements in place with all of them.
What we use your information for
We occasionally use your contact information to send you details of our products and services. When we do, you have the option to unsubscribe from these communications and we won’t send them to you again. We might also email or phone you about our products and services, but if you tell us not to, we won’t get in touch again. We will use your information to send you invoices, statements, or reminders.
Who’s responsible for your information at our company
Our DPO (Data Protection Officer), is responsible for the security of your information. You can contact them by email at email@example.com if you have any concerns about the information we store.
Who has access to information about you
When we store information in our own systems, only the people who need it have access. Our management team have access to everything you’ve provided, but individual employees have access to only what they need to do their job.
The steps we take to keep your information private
Where we store your information in third-party services, we restrict access only to people who need it.The computers we use are all encrypted and are protected by a passcode or fingerprint access.

We safeguard the security of your personal information with industry-standard physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. The safety and security of your personal information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to or through our Services. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on or within the Services.
