Data will be stored for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.



We know how important it is to keep your data safe. That’s why our website is using ‘https’ technology. This means all your transactions are secured and trusted, and sensitive data such as payment card information is protected. All data sent to our server and the data returned to you is encrypted to prevent unauthorised persons viewing your details.

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. 



We use a third party service (Google Analytics) to improve the customer experience. This is intended to help us understand website traffic and usage; data is stored on Google servers in the United States and are not shared with anyone else but Hay Hampers Ltd.



Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.



To improve your experience on our website we also need to collect your cookies. A cookie is a piece of information shared between a website and your computer's hard drive. This is so that the website can remember who you are, e.g. with the login credentials.

We use cookies in the following ways:

- To help us recognize you as a unique visitor, (just a number) when you return to our website. This would technically also allow us to match your preferred interests with specific content in our site. In practice we are not that technically savvy, so unlikely to use cookies  for this purpose.

- To compile anonymous aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use our website. This helps us improve the background of our website.

Two types of cookies may be used on our website. The first are session cookies, which remain in the cookies file of your browser until you leave our site. The second are persistent cookies which remain in the cookie file of your browser for the life of the specific cookie. Most of our web pages also contain electronic images known as Web beacons that allow us to count users who have visited these pages. This helps us to formulate the offerings that we make on our site. Web beacons collect a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page from which the web beacon originates.

You can accept or decline the use of cookies by modifying the settings in your browser. Please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of our website. To find out more on how to disable or enable cookies visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

A popup will appear the first time you visit our website, asking you for permission to collect your cookies. Once approved, we consider you allow us using you cookies till further request.



In some situations, we can use your data to reach our legitimate goals in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests, like sending you personalised offers following your purchase, and using your address details to send you promotional material that might interest you.



We may need to collect and process your data if required by the law.
