For example, we may use your purchase history to send you or make available personalised offers. Or if you apply for a position with us we need your details to process your application.

For example, your details will be used to deliver the product that you ordered and we may keep your details for a reasonable period afterwards in order to fulfil any contractual obligations such as refunds.
- To respond to your queries, refund requests and complaints. Handling the information you sent enables us to respond. We may also keep a record of these to inform any future communication with us and to demonstrate how we communicated with you throughout. We do this on the basis of our contractual obligations to you, our legal obligations and our legitimate interests in providing you with the best service and understanding how we can improve our service based on your experience.
- To protect our business and your account from fraud and other illegal activities. This includes using your personal data to maintain, update and safeguard your account.
For example, by checking your password when you login
- To process payments and to prevent fraudulent transactions. We do this on the basis of our legitimate business interests. This also helps to protect our customers from fraud.

We have a legitimate interest to do so as this helps make our products or services more relevant to you.
- To track online user traffic patterns. We do not correlate this information with data about individual users. We track overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, IP address, ISP hostname and browser type by reading this information from the browser string. We use tracking information for statistical purposes and to determine which areas of our sites users like and do not like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
