How long will we keep your information for?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.
We will retain your name, email address, address, phone number, gender, details of previous purchases, searches and items saved in your wish list, which we collect when you hold an account with us for such time as you continue to hold an account with us, or, until you withdraw your consent, or object to the use of your personal data for our legitimate purposes, where we use your data on these grounds (as explained above).

We monitor how you engage with our emails and other electronic messages (provided that you have given us your consent to do so), and if you don’t open an email or message for 12 months you’ll automatically fall into a 30 day inactive program. If you’re still not active on email or messaging following this period, we’ll retire your contact details and stop contacting you with marketing. Alternatively, you can “opt out” to stop receiving marketing emails within 24 hours.
We may need to retain your personal data for other purposes, e.g. operating your account or dealing with any enquiry you have made.
