It’s a long read, but will reassure you that your information will be safe with us. Any changes we make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on this page. Please check back sufficiently often to see any updates or changes to our privacy policy.



If you would prefer that we not collect any personally identifiable information from you, please do not provide us with any such information. Please note that if you do not wish to provide any personal information, you will not be able to make purchases on this website or use our in clinic treatment facilities.



Your shopping experience will be quicker and smoother if we already have some of your details on our system. Retaining some of your information allows us to personalise our service to you, for example recommending things you might like, based on your previous purchases, letting you know about special offers and sales or giving you a preview of new products and brands. However, we can erase details we have about you if you wish; you just have to simply contact us to request this.



When you interact with us, we gather things like your name, your email details, delivery and billing addresses, phone number etc. This might be when you visit our clinic for a treatment, create an account or complete checkout and place an order, or sign up for a mailing list or newsletter.



Name & Address – to send you your purchases. Email address – to send you order confirmations, updates, delivery progress, refund updates and any customer service announcements. We would also use your email address for future marketing emails, newsletters etc.if you opt in to receive these. Phone number – to contact you regarding your order if needed or send update texts regarding delivery information. We will never use your phone number for any other purpose. Password – this is your unique security to access your account, your orders, your account preferences and to enable you to edit as and when you wish. IP Address - When you visit our website, we use cookies which automatically collect your Internet protocol address which generates a log file. (See more about cookies below.) When you make a purchase from us, we will only ever hold the minimum details required in order for you to reference back to a purchase, and we cannot access your payment method as soon as the transaction has been completed. These minimal details will be deleted once we believe you would no longer wish to refer to that purchase (typically about six years). When you place an order, your payment is processed via a secure third party company such as PayPal or Stripe and they control that payment data. If you use social media, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc., we might occasionally use information available from those external sources to show you ads we think will be relevant to you, based on your interaction with us. This only happens if your security settings permit it and although there’s no escaping ads on these platforms completely, you can manage what adverts are shown to you in your privacy and ad settings within your social media accounts.



Keeping limited information about you and your preferences, allows us to offer the smoothest service when you visit our site or communicate with us. It also allows us to speed up payments as we are able to quickly establish we know each other and have transacted before. If you order from us, your data allows us to keep you up to speed on where your order is and arrange a delivery or return. Certain details you share with us enable us to tailor our communications to you and make sure we are telling you about things we believe you are interested in. Lastly, knowing about our genuine customers, helps us detect and reduce fraud and credit risk.



We will not sell or distribute your personal information to third parties unless it is in order to fulfil an order you have placed with us.
