What we do with your information
In addition to processing your order, we also maintain an order history of your purchases. This allows you and us to track your deliveries and review your past purchases. We may offer you a reward for purchases or make an offer we think you might like based on your order history. We will not send you emails advertising our latest products or special offers as we feel that these can spoil the relationships that we like to build with our customers. We may email you to remind you that you sent a gift at a given time the previous year.

The only other companies that will have access to this information are the mail and courrier firms that we use to delivery your gifts.
