Transfer of your information out of the UK and EEA

We may transfer your personal information to the following which are located outside the United Kingdom (UK) and European Economic Area (EEA) for example so that our overseas suppliers can send you the goods you have ordered or provide you with services you have ordered.

Such countries do not have the same data protection laws as the UK and EEA. While the European Commission has not given a formal decision that they provide an adequate level of data protection similar to those which apply in the UK and EEA, any transfer of your personal information will be subject to appropriate and suitable relevant safeguards that are designed to help safeguard your privacy rights and give you remedies in the unlikely event of a misuse of your personal information.

If you would like further information please contact us (see ‘How to contact us’ below). We will not otherwise transfer your personal data outside of the area comprising the UK and EEA or to any organisation (or subordinate bodies) governed by public international law or which is set up under any agreement between two or more countries.

We would also like to share your information with selected sponsors, partners or third party suppliers so that they may send you information about their products or services, depending on what you agree with us.

We will only ask whether you would like us and other businesses to send you marketing messages when you tick the relevant boxes.

If you have previously agreed to being contacted in this way, you can unsubscribe at any time by:
