2. HOW THIS INFORMATION MAY BE USED
We process personal information for purchases, payments, customer support and fulfilment to enable us to perform our contract with you; where your contact details and transactional information are processed.

Payment providers to facilitate purchases
Fulfilment providers to facilitate order management, packaging and delivery
Marketing and advertising providers in order to personalise your experience
Sellers, so we can resolve any product complains, faults or any other product related issues
Where legally compelling grounds exist, we may also disclose your personal information to governmental and law enforcement agencies, and otherwise in the defence of legal claims.

We protect your information using measures that reduce the risks of loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure and alteration. We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
If we were to be acquired by another company, we may share your information with them.
4. RETENTION OF INFORMATION
We retain your personal information as long as it is necessary and relevant for our operations. In addition, we may retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with legal requirements, prevent fraud and resolve disputes. Where a legal requirement obliges the retention of personal data for a specific minimum period, we will retain data for at least that period. After it is no longer necessary for us to retain your personal information, we dispose of it securely according to our data retention and deletion policies.

We have put in place technology and security policies which are designed to protect the personal information we hold about you. We also follow the security procedures that applicable privacy laws require. When you place an order, or access your account information, we use a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption which encrypts your information before it is sent to us to protect it from unauthorised use. However, the Internet is not a completely secure medium for communication and, we therefore cannot guarantee the security of any information you send to us (or we send to you) via the Internet; any transmission is at your own risk and we are not responsible for any damages which you, or others, may suffer as a result of the loss of confidentiality of such information.
