When you create an online customer account, to manage your account, to provide access to your shopping cart, to display purchased, reserved and registered products, or to present other products presumably of interest to you, to verify your identity if you forgot your password and to process your product reviews.
When you choose to provide us further information, such as date of birth, address, personal settings, a wish list and your gender, to enable us to personalize both your profile and our recommendations for you.
When you order goods online, in this case we additionally need your address, telephone number and payment information, to process your purchase, send you confirmation or back-in-stock notification and scan transactions for fraudulent activity.

In addition to those just described, we want to explain certain of our processing activities to you in more detail:
1.1 Recruiting process
We process your data in order to handle your job application if you apply for a job with us. For the application process we collect the information from the application and the information included in your CV/resume and cover letter, such as contact details, academic background, job history, skills and competencies, salary details, as well as the IP address from the device you are applying from etc. Your data will not be kept for longer than it is necessary for the application process, employment or as required by applicable law.

1.3 Credit check in Germany and Austria
For our customers in Germany and Austria we offer the possibility to order on account.

Using mathematical-statistical procedures, the credit agency determines how likely it is that our customer will pay our bill. On the sole basis of an automated decision (without manual checking), only a positive result will make available the option "order on account".
1.4 Interest based advertising
We may contact you for direct marketing purposes via email, mail, or other electronic communication methods (e.g. social media) unless you have opted-out from receiving direct marketing messages. For certain types of direct marketing methods (e.g. text messaging), we will obtain your explicit consent prior to sending you direct marketing messages. To select which marketing information may be of interest to you and to personalize ads and offers we
- use publicly available information (e.g. from your social media profiles),
- analyze your account information and how you use our services including our website, ads on third party websites and our newsletter,

3. HOW WE MAY CONTACT YOU
If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
Where we are required to give you notice in writing or we refer to providing you with written notice this includes us giving you notice by email.
4. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
Please see our guide for instructions on how to place an order.
Your order constitutes an offer to buy and pay for a Product. All orders are subject to our acceptance. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we send you an email confirming that the Product(s) have been despatched, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us in respect of those Products which have been despatched. Please note that the automatic confirmation email you receive is only an acknowledgment of your order and is not acceptance by us.
We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until we have sent you a despatch confirmation email in respect of those Products.
If we are unable to accept your order (or part of your order), we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for that Product(s). This might be because the Product is out of stock, the Product is unavailable for collection at the desired store, fraud prevention (if we suspect the purchase may be fraudulent) or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Product. If payment has already been taken, this will be refunded to you.
The delivery time depends on the chosen shipping method. The delivery times stated on the site are approximate delivery times. In any event, the order will be fulfilled within 30 days of the date of the despatch confirmation email unless there are exceptional circumstances. The delivery is made by a shipping service provider independent of us.
We offer a free standard delivery service. Your order will be delivered in approx. 4 - 6 working days (meaning Monday to Friday, excluding Saturday, Sunday and public holidays) after you place the order.
Current delivery charges will be displayed at the checkout and included in your total order amount.
Our site is solely for the promotion and sale of Products in the UK. We only deliver to addresses within the UK, excluding Isle of Man and Channel Islands.
6. OWNERSHIP AND RESPONSIBILITY
The Products will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the Products. Please note that you will need someone to sign for and accept delivery of the Products – this will be proof of delivery. The Products will be deemed delivered once our carrier has delivered the Products to you at the address you gave us (or it has been delivered to a neighbour or safe place) or once you have (or someone on your behalf has) collected it from our store or the carrier's depot.
You will own the Products once we have received payment in full (including delivery charges).
7. PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of any Products (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order.
Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly described, pictured or priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our despatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when despatching the Product to you. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you for instructions before we accept your order.
We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a despatch confirmation email. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any Products provided to you.
Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card, or by PayPal. We will charge your account once the Products are despatched. If at the time of despatch any Product(s) are out of stock, we will refund you the price of that out of stock Product(s).
8. LEGAL RIGHT TO CHANGE YOUR MIND (CONSUMER CONTRACTS REGULATIONS 2013)
You have the right to cancel this contract within 14 days without giving any reason. The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the goods. You will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any Product which has been personalised for you or at your request, unless we are at fault.
To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel this contract by a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail, quoting the Order Number). You may also use the attached model cancellation form, but it is not obligatory. If you use this option, we will communicate to you an acknowledgement of receipt of such a cancellation on a durable medium (e.g. by e-mail) without delay. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
Effects of cancellation
If you cancel this contract, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us). You will have to bear the direct cost of returning the goods.
You shall send back the goods without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate to us your cancellation from this contract. The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 14 days has expired.
The goods must be in new, unused condition, and complete with all packaging, instructions, warranty booklets and certificates where supplied. We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if any parts are missing or the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you (i.e. more than would be normal in a retail shop to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods).
We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than -
(a) 14 days after the day we receive back from you any goods supplied, or
(b) (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the goods, or
(c) if there were no goods supplied, 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this contract.
We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earlier. We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
This provision does not affect your statutory rights. For further information on your statutory rights, please see www.consumerdirect.gov.uk.

10. DELAYS OUTSIDE OF OUR CONTROL
If our supply of the Products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any Products you have paid for but not received.
11. OUR RESPONSIBILITY INCLUDING FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU AND ANY GUARANTEES
We are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this contract.
A guarantee exists for the Products delivered by us only if such guarantee was expressly given.
Our liability for losses you suffer as a result of us breaking this contract is strictly limited to the purchase price of the Product you purchased.
If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the order process.
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Products including the right to receive Products which are: as described and match information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; supplied with reasonable skill and care and, where installed by us, correctly installed; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the Products for domestic and private use. If you use the Products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
12. TRANSFER OF THESE TERMS
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you are unhappy with the transfer you may contact us to end the contract within 30 days of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for Products not provided.
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
13. EVEN IF WE DELAY IN ENFORCING THIS CONTRACT, WE CAN STILL ENFORCE IT LATER
If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
14. IF A COURT FINDS PART OF THIS CONTRACT ILLEGAL, THE REST WILL CONTINUE IN FORCE
Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
15. OUR RIGHT TO CHANGE THESE TERMS
We may make changes to these terms to reflect changes in market conditions affecting our business, changes in technology, changes in payment methods or changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and changes in our system's capabilities.
The policies and terms and conditions in force at the time that you order Products from us will apply, unless any change to those policies or these terms and conditions is required to be made by law or governmental authority (in which case it will apply to orders previously placed by you), or if we notify you of the change to those policies or these terms and conditions before we send you a despatch confirmation email, but if we do, you may contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any Products paid for but not received within 14 days.
16. LAWS WHICH APPLY AND WHERE LEGAL PROCEEDINGS MAY BE BROUGHT
There terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in the English courts.
