You can do this by clicking on ‘My Plan’ via the ‘Profile’ page whenever you are logged in.

We reserve the right to deliver and charge in full for any order unless we have received notice of cancellation before the published deadline. This deadline is important since, typically, we make up the deliveries for despatch to you the day before delivery and obtain some of the Products especially to fulfil your order and may not be able to sell the Products elsewhere.

    5. How and why do we use your personal data?

    Here's how we'll use your personal data and why:
    • To process any orders that you make by using our website. If we don't collect your personal data during checkout, we won't be able to process your order and comply with our legal obligations.

    • 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.

    8. How long will we keep your personal data?
    Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we'll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. At the end of that retention period, your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning.


    Some examples of customer data retention periods: 

    Orders
    When you place an order, we'll keep the personal data you give us for 7 years so we can comply with our legal obligations in regards to Food Safety and our product recall procedures 
    9. Who do we share your personal data with?
    We sometimes share your personal data with trusted third parties.

    For example delivery couriers, for fraud management, to handle complaints, to help us personalise our offers to you and so on.

    Here's the policy we apply to those organisations to keep your data safe and protect your privacy:
    • We provide only the information they need to perform their specific services.
    • They may only use your data for the exact purposes we specify in our contract with them.
    • We work closely with them to ensure that your privacy is respected and protected at all times.
    • If we stop using their services, any of your data held by them will either be deleted or rendered anonymous.
    Examples of the kind of third parties we work with are:
    • IT companies who support our website and other business systems.
    • Operational companies such as delivery couriers.
    • Direct marketing companies who help us manage our electronic communications with you.
    • Google/Facebook/Twitter to show you products that might interest you while you're browsing the internet. This is based on either your marketing consent or your acceptance of cookies on our websites.
    • Data insight companies to ensure your details are up to date and accurate.  
    Sharing your data with third parties for their own purposes:
    We will only do this in very specific circumstances, for example:
    • With your consent, given at the time you supply your personal data, we may pass that data to a third party for their direct marketing purposes.
    For example, if you enter a product give away competition and tick a box agreeing that the company can send you promotional information directly. Or if we run a joint event with a restaurant, and you agree to receive direct communications from them.
    • For fraud management, we may share information about fraudulent or potentially fraudulent activity in our premises or systems. This may include sharing data about individuals with law enforcement bodies.
    • We may also be required to disclose your personal data to the police or other enforcement, regulatory or Government body, in your country of origin or elsewhere, upon a valid request to do so. These requests are assessed on a case-by-case basis and take the privacy of our customers into consideration.
    • We may, from time to time, expand, reduce or sell the Company and this may involve the transfer of divisions or the whole business to new owners. If this happens, your personal data will, where relevant, be transferred to the new owner or controlling party, under the terms of this Privacy Notice.
    • For further information please contact our Data Protection Officer.
    To help personalise your journey through our website we currently use the following companies, who will process your personal data as part of their contracts with us:

    10. Where your personal data may be processed
    Sometimes we will need to share your personal data with third parties and suppliers outside the European Economic Area (EEA), such as Australia or the USA.

    International orders
    If you are based outside the UK and place an order with us, we will transfer the personal data that we collect from you to the Company in the UK.

    Protecting your data outside the EEA
    The EEA includes all EU Member countries as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. We may transfer personal data that we collect from you to third-party data processors in countries that are outside the EEA.
    For example, this might be required in order to fulfil your order, process your payment details or provide support services.
    If we do this, we have procedures in place to ensure your data receives the same protection as if it were being processed inside the EEA. For example, our contracts with third parties stipulate the standards they must follow at all times. If you wish for more information about these contracts please contact us.

    Any transfer of your personal data will follow applicable laws and we will treat the information under the guiding principles of this Privacy Notice. 
    11. What are your rights over your personal data?

    • Access to the personal data we hold about you, free of charge.
    • The correction of your personal data when incorrect, out of date or incomplete.
    • For example, when you withdraw consent, or object and we have no legitimate overriding interest, or once the purpose for which we hold the data has come to an end.

    • That we stop any consent-based processing of your personal data after you withdraw that consent.

    Checking your identity To protect the confidentiality of your information, we will ask you to verify your identity before proceeding with any request you make under this Privacy Notice.
