What is "Personal Data"
Where we use the term personal data, we mean information that can connect to you (such as your name, eMail address, address, order information etc). There is a different category of sensitive personal data (such as political views, medical data etc) which obviously we do not collect under any circumstances.
Personal data collected from our Customers
When you order from us via the website, or by any other means, we collect some personal data about you in order to fulfil your order. This information typically includes; your full name, telephone number, address, and eMail address.
We use a third party (“Wix") to process your payment card details in order to complete your purchase that you made through the Website, who may disclose your personal data to trusted third parties (such as your bank) to verify your identity when making payment.
We may retain any correspondence including eMail and telephone calls, and use the personal data provided by any means to contact you for legitimate purposes relating to your purchase.
We use this information to perform our obligations under Contract to provide services to you and for the prevention and detection of fraud.
We will keep your information until we no longer have any need to communicate with you, in accordance with our Data Retention Policy.
Personal data for Marketing
We will use your personal data to send you occasional eMails that may be of interest to you in the legitimate interest of promoting our business and to keep you informed of future products. You may, at any time, object to the use of your data in this way. The eMails will be individual and sporadic in nature, we will not at any time add you to a bulk mailing list or disclose your details to any third party for marketing purposes.
Additionally, we may send marketing emails on the basis of consent (e.g. the mailing list which you can opt-in to during the checkout process). You have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.
In each marketing message we send, we provide the means to opt-out from that type of message, or all further marketing communications. You may also do this at any time by contacting us.
We may share your personal data with other service providers to process personal information on our behalf. We use third party providers to help provide services to you, including to; communicate with you, process payments, and manage deliveries.
Where a third party is engaged by MML as a processor, we still control your personal data. We only share the data for the purpose which have been explained to you above. We ensure that all our third party processors give sufficient guarantees as to the security and confidentiality of your personal data.
Information is not transferred outside of the EU in most cases. On occasion, we may process your personal data in countries recognised by the European Commission as providing adequate privacy protection.
We may disclose personal data to third parties as may be required if compelled to do so by law, or for the purposes of fraud prevention, the prevention and detection of crime.
Protecting your Information
We will protect your personal data, and have strict procedures and measures in place to do so and employ suitably technical measures to protect your information where appropriate.
The personal information that we hold will be held securely to ensure no unauthorised disclosure or access. The Internet is not a secure medium. We have put in place various security measures, but you are advised to treat the internet as an insecure medium in all of your communications with us.
We do not store Credit Card information.
We will keep your data for an appropriate period of time, and not for a longer period than is necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose it was held for (as detailed above)
We will typically retain your name, address, billing address, products you have ordered, correspondence (including images etc) for a period of six years in accordance with legal requirements (e.g. accounting law).
If you have any concerns about how long specific information is held for, please don't hesitate to contact us for clarification.

the personal data we have about you is inaccurate;
