What is our legal basis for processing your personal information?
Whenever we process your personal information, we have to have something called a “legal basis” for what we do. The different legal bases we rely on are:
Consent: You have told us you are happy for us to process your personal information for a specific purpose
Legitimate interests: The processing is necessary for us to conduct our business, but not where our interests are overridden by your interests or rights

Legal obligation: We are required to process your personal information by law

How do we use your personal information?
There are a number of ways in which we use your personal information, depending on how you interact with us. If you do not provide your information to us, then we will be unable to interact with you – for example, if you do not provide your name, address and account details when purchasing one of our products online, we will not be able to sell you that product as we would be unable to process your payment or deliver the product to you.

We may use your information in the following ways:
• To provide our products and services – we need to use your personal information to make our products and services available to you. If you then decide to order any of our products or services then we’re delighted, thank you. After that, we need to provide them to you, process your payment and we need to use your details to do all this.
• To personalise your experience – we try to understand our customers so we can provide you with a great shopping experience, relevant marketing, personalised offers, shopping ideas and online advertising. How you use and browse our website and social media helps us to do this.
• For safety and security – we use your personal information to help provide safe and secure environments for our training sessions, as well as online purchases. To enable this we monitor online behaviour and carry out checks to help us ensure that our customers are genuine to prevent fraud and to help customers use our services appropriately.
• Analytics and profiling – we use your personal information for statistical analysis and to help us understand more about our customers. That includes understanding the services and products you buy. These profiles help us to send you offers that are more relevant to you.
• Contacting you – we use your personal information to contact you about products and services from us. We may also contact you in relation to any questions you have raised with us about services or products.
