When you make a purchase for delivery
When you make a purchase online we will collect necessary information about you to ensure we can fulfil your order. This data is processed on the basis of “Legitimate Interest” as we need this data to fulfil your order. Details of your order may be passed to a third party company to assist us with the prevention and detection of fraudulent orders which may result in us requesting additional information from you. Where orders are fulfilled by a third party courier we will need to share your contact information with them for the purpose of delivering your order. Where our couriers support giving you additional tracking information via email or sms text message we will give them this information for this purpose.
Where you have added items to your basket and started entering your information we may send you an email to let you know that the checkout has not been completed. The lawful basis for this email is “Legitimate Interest” as you have expressed an interest in purchasing these items. You may unsubscribe from these emails using the link at the bottom of the email.
As we are always looking for ways to improve, we may send you a link to review us via our review partners which include Feefo and Trustpilot. The lawful basis for these emails is “Legitimate Interest” as these reviews are helpful for future customers. You may unsubscribe from these emails using the link at the bottom of the email.
We may from time to time offer surveys, contests, competitions or other promotions on our website or through social media (collectively “competitions”). Participation is voluntary. Information requested for entry will be used to administer the competitions. We will only use the information you submit to the competition to send you marketing communications if you explicitly consent to this.
Managing your marketing preferences
We will never share or sell your data to third parties for marketing purposes.
When you provide your email address to us you may be asked if you would like to opt in to receive marketing communications. We will only send you marketing communications where you have consented to receive them. We will only send you marketing communications via the channel you have consented to (for example post or email).
To ensure that you are still happy to hear from us, if you have not updated your preferences with us for a two year period, we will contact you to remind you that you can opt out at any time.
Where you have made a purchase with us in the last two year period we will continue to send you marketing communications. Where you have not made a purchase with us in the last two years we will only continue to send marketing communications if you tell us to do so.
If you have consented to receive marketing communications you can manage this in the my account section of www.demiandco.com, if you do not have an account you can click on "update subscription preferences" or "unsubscribe from this list" links at the bottom of emails.
How long we store your data
We are committed to keeping your personal information only for as long as is necessary. Where we no longer require information to be in a format where you can be identified personally, we will remove any personal details and store the data anonymously.
We may collect information about your computer, including your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration. This is statistical data about users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
Your IP address may also be passed to a third party company to assist us with the prevention and detection of fraudulent orders.

You agree to provide us with accurate account information and acknowledge that you are responsible for keeping your account login information secret.

We may suspend, close or delete your account at any time. This includes if you break any of your obligations set out above. We do not have to give a reason for closing or deleting your account.
If you do not make any orders or logins for a period of two years your account will be deleted. If you wish to use your account after it has been deleted you will need to create a new account.
Where your personal data is stored
We may store and process any of your personal data both inside and outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Where processing is outside the EEA, we will ensure the company at least meets the standards of the GDPR. Your data may be stored or processed for, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy and cookies policy.
We take various steps to ensure the protection of your personal data, both online and offline, but as the transmission of data across the internet can never be completely secure, we do not guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the website. Any transmission is at your own risk.
