We will only use your personal information lawfully in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (‘GDPR’).
We process personal data for a variety of reasons, with each means of collection, lawful basis of processing, use, disclosure, and retention periods set out on a situational basis.

We may also share this information with our third-party delivery partners so that we can get your goods delivered to you.

None of your personal details will ever be passed to any third parties or shared with companies or people outside of Pluto Partners and our associated businesses.
Under the applicable data protection laws (GDPR) we need a lawful basis to collect and use your personal data. The law allows for six lawful bases to process people’s personal data, and one of them allows personal data to be legally collected and used if it is necessary for a legitimate interest of the organisation – as long as it is fair and balanced and does not unduly impact the rights of individuals.
We have assessed our business interests in carrying out marketing activities and we have carefully considered the impact the collection and use of personal data could potentially have on individuals’ rights.
Our databases contain primarily business data, which is used to help, and promote to, businesses in the UK and such activities are unlikely to affect the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals concerned. We have therefore concluded that the most appropriate lawful ground for the processing of your personal data is our legitimate interests.
In the event you request any goods and/or services from us, we will rely on our contractual relationship to process your personal data to provide such goods and/or services to you. In certain circumstances we may also rely on a specific consent provided by you for the processing of your personal data.
You have the right to object to this processing if you wish and if you do so we will remove your data from all our systems and cease all communication with you. If you wish to make that happen just send an email to: email@example.com
