We will keep and hold your data for no longer than necessary. The length of time we hold it will depend on any legal obligations we have (such as tax recording purposes), the nature of any contracts we have in place with you, the existence of your consent or our legitimate interests as a business.

Purchases: when you purchase from us, we retain that information for a period of six years following the end of the financial year during which you purchased from us.  It is our legal obligation to keep these records for tax purposes.

Enquiries: unless you provide consent for future contact during your enquiry, we will keep your information for as long as is required to respond and complete your enquiry, and for a further 12 months before deleting your information.
