Processing necessary for us to respond to understanding customers’ needs

You have the right to object to us sending you this information at any time; 
  2. To contact you with targeted advertising delivered online through social media and other platforms operated by other companies, unless you object.

General information on Klarna you can find here. Your personal data is handled in accordance with applicable data protection law and in accordance with the information in Klarna’s privacy policy.


Vital Interest 

Sometimes we will need to process your personal information to contact you if there is an urgent safety or product recall notice and we need to tell you about it.


How do we share this information?

We do not sell your information to third parties, but we do work closely with o third party suppliers who fulfill business activities for us (like deliveries, collections, marketing, events and market research etc.)


We may from time to time disclose your information to the following categories of companies or organisations to which we pass the responsibility to handle services on our behalf: manufacturers or suppliers of products (ie Mamas and Papas (UK) Limited for direct delivery of furniture) assistance service providers, market analytics service providers, our legal and other professional advisors. 


We will also share your information with our authorised suppliers in situations where we need to pass your information to them in order to manage any request or complaint you have made to us. For example, where you have requested a product repair or inspection, we will need to share your personal information with a manufacturer or product supplier so that they can contact you to arrange for collection of a product or direct delivery of a replacement part. 


We take steps to ensure that any third party partners who handle your information comply with data protection legislation and protect your information just as we do. We only disclose personal information that is necessary for them to provide the service that they are undertaking on our behalf. We will aim to anonymise your information or use aggregated non specific data sets where ever possible. 


Due to the international nature of our business, there may be some instances where your information is processed or stored outside of the EU. In those instances, we will ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place for that transfer and storage as required by applicable law. 


There are circumstances where we share your information with our suppliers in order to fulfil orders, transactions, handle complaints or provide you with a service or information that you have requested. For example we will share information with Mamas and Papas Limited where you enquire about their services through us or where you make a complaint to us and later make the same or similar complaint to them. Mamas and Papas UK Limited may use your information to provide you with information and carry out their obligations arising from contracts you enter into with them. For more information, please see their privacy statement.


How long do we keep your information for?

We will not hold your personal information in an identifiable format for any longer than is necessary. If you are a customer or otherwise have a relationship with us we will hold personal information about you for a longer period than if we have obtained your details in connection with a prospective relationship.


We do not retain personal information in an identifiable format for longer than is necessary. 


If we have a relationship with you (e.g. you are a customer who has purchased a product from us), we hold your personal information for 6 years from the date our relationship ends. We hold your personal information for this period to establish, bring or defend legal claims. Our relationship may end for a number of reasons including where the product warranty expires, or we have been made aware that you no longer own the product purchased from us. 


Where we have obtained your personal information following a request for information, brochure, quotation or any other information on any of our products or services, we hold your personal information for 1 year from the date we collect that information, unless during that period we form a relationship with you e.g. you purchase a product. We hold your personal information for this period to give us an opportunity to form a relationship with you. 


The only exceptions to the periods mentioned above are where: the law requires us to hold your personal information for a longer period, or delete it sooner; Where you have raised a complaint or concern regarding a product or service offered by us, in which case we will retain your information for a period of 6 years following the date of that complaint or query; or you exercise your right to have the information erased (where it applies) and we do not need to hold it in connection with any of the reasons permitted or required under the law (see further How can I manage the information we hold about you);


How can you manage the information we hold about you?

You have the right as an individual to access your personal information we hold about you and make corrections if necessary. You also have the right to withdraw any consent you have previously given us and ask us to erase information we hold about you. You can also object to us using your personal information (where we rely on our business interests to process and use your personal information).


You have a number of rights in relation to your personal information under data protection law. In relation to most rights, we will ask you for information to confirm your identity and, where applicable, to help us search for your personal information. Except in rare cases, we will respond to you within 30 days after we have received any request (including any identification documents requested). 


You have the right to: 

1) Ask for a copy of the information that we hold about you; 

2) Correct and update your information; 

3) Withdraw your consent (where we rely on it).

4) Object to our use of your information (where we rely on our legitimate interests to use your personal information) provided we do not have any continuing lawful reason to continue to use and process the information. When we do rely on our legitimate interests to use your personal information for direct marketing, we will always comply with your right to object; 

5) Erase your information (or restrict the use of it), provided we do not have any continuing lawful reason to continue to use and process that information; 

6) Transfer your information in a structured data file, where we rely on your consent to use and process your personal information or need to process it in connection with your contract.
