  1. This policy applies to all information we record about you. It sets out the conditions under which we may process any information we collect from you, or that you provide to us. It covers information that could identify you (“personal information”) and information that could not. In the context of the law and this policy, “process” means collect, store, transfer, use or otherwise act on information.
  2. We regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to leave our website immediately.
  3. We take the protection of your privacy and confidentiality seriously. We understand that all visitors to our website are entitled to know that their personal data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party.
  4. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of all information you provide to us, and hope that you reciprocate.
  5. Our policy complies with UK law accordingly implemented, including that required by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
  6. The law requires us to tell you about your rights and our obligations to you in regard to the processing and control of your personal data. You can do this by reading the information provided at
  7. Except as set out below, we do not share, sell or disclose to a third party, any information collected through our website.


The basis on which we process information about you

The law requires us to determine under which of six basis we process different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each category.

If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant, then we shall immediately stop processing your data.

If the basis changes then, if required by law, we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.


1. Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you

When you create an account on our website, buy a product or service from us or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us.

In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information.

We may use it in order to:

  • 1.1 verify your identity for age verification purposes (this includes using third party software such as the NHS and LexisNexis);
  • 1.2 sell products and/or services to you;
  • 1.3 provide you with our products and/or services; and/or
  • 1.4 provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most from using our website.
  • 1.5 conduct a search of your medical record using the NHS Summary Care Record

We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract.

Additionally, we may aggregate this information in a general way and use it to provide class information (for example, to monitor our performance with respect to a particular product or service we provide). If we use it for this purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable.

We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.


2. Information we process with your consent

Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our business, including (but not limited to) our products and services, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal information.

Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information (for example, by asking you to agree to our use of cookies).

Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you send us a message by email to which you would reasonably expect us to reply.

Except where you have consented to our use of your information for a specific purpose, we do not use your information in any way that would identify you personally. We may, however, aggregate it in a general way and use it to provide class information (for example, to monitor the performance of a particular page on our website).

If you have given us explicit permission to do so, we may from time to time pass your name and contact information to selected associates whom we consider may provide products and/or services you would find useful.

We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.

You may withdraw your consent at any time by emailing us at [email protected] However, if you do so, you may not be able to use our website or our services further.


3. Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests

We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so.

Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to:

  • whether the same objective could be achieved through other means;
  • whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm; and
  • whether you would expect us to process your data and whether you would, in the round, consider it reasonable to do so.

For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:

  • record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our business;
  • responding to an unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response;
  • protecting and asserting our legal rights;
  • insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage business risk; or
  • protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so.


4. Information we process because we have a legal obligation

We are subject to the law like everyone else. Sometimes we must process your information to comply with a statutory obligation.

For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation (such as a search warrant or court order).

This may include your personal information.
