How long is my information kept?
Payment card details for those that pay over the phone or on-line are retained only as required by the card processing company to demonstrate approval for the transaction was provided by customers.
Information relating to your order will be retained for as long as it is required for the purpose of managing and delivering your order. Once your order is complete, some information is retained for contractual reasons, which is generally 5 years after your order was completed. Information about financial transactions will be retained for up to 7 years, which is a legal obligation.

Where your personal information is being processed using consent, one further right is the right to withdraw your consent at any time.
