Analysis of Service Use (cookies and general analytics) and marketing
We are always trying to improve our Services in order to provide the best experience possible, taking into consideration the needs and preferences of our customers. To evaluate and improve our Services we monitor their use, which may include processing personal information relating to you or your purchases.
We process this information to understand how visitors use our Website and to compile statistical reports regarding that activity (for example, your IP address is used to approximate the country from which you access our Website. We aggregate this information to understand, for example, what proportion of visitors to our Website come from a specific territory).
This processing is necessary for us to pursue our legitimate interests of improving our Website and Services, developing additional features and improving monetisation.

If you would like to disable Google Analytics, please use this link (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/) to access an opt-out plug in which prevents further processing of your data in this way.
Where Google Analytics information is available, we also use the Google Optimize service from Google LLC, to help understand which variations of our website visitors prefer. Shopify, Inc. hosts our Website and we use their analytics tools to understand how visitors use our Website and Services, including to find out whether you only made it part of the way through the purchase process (so we can contact you to check whether you encountered a problem and still want to complete your purchase).
We use Mailchimp (operated by The Rocket Science Group LLC) to send you emails about your orders, and also to send you information about our products and services if you have signed-up to receive them, in which case we will sometimes be able to track whether those on our mailing list have opened and read an email, and followed any of the links in those emails.
This processing is necessary for us to pursue our legitimate interests of improving our Website and Services, developing additional features and improving monetisation. Processing of your personal data by Mailchimp in relation to your orders is necessary for us to perform our obligations under a contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering a contract.

International data transfers
We store your personal information only within the EEA.
Specific providers we work together with may be based outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Countries outside of the EEA offer varying standards for the protection of personal data and your privacy rights and in some cases these standards are lower than equivalent EEA standards. When we send your personal data outside the EEA to our service providers, we have in place the EU Commission-approved standard contractual clauses in the form of an appropriate data transfer agreement or other adequate safeguards to ensure appropriate data protection.
For further information about these safeguards you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
Where you have provided us with personal information in order to set up an account with us, we will retain those details for as long as your account remains active.
Where we obtain your personal data in relation to the use or purchase of our services or products, including VAT or invoicing information, we are obligated by law to keep this for a minimum of 6 years.
We do not knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should contact us at email@example.com.
