You can browse this website without being asked to provide any personal information, but we obviously require a certain amount of information from you to allow us to fulfil your order, answer your queries and offer you the best possible shopping experience.
We only ever ask you to provide the minimum required to allow us to do that – name, address (including delivery address, if different), email and telephone number.
We ask you for payment card details in order to process payment for your order, but we do not store these. (In addition, we are certified as being PCI-DSS compliant, so the transaction is as safe as we can reasonably make it.)
Apart from that, we use web analytics tools when you browse the website that may record things like your IP address, browser type, browser plug-ins, operating system, time zone settings etc.
If you make a purchase from us, we record details of any transactions you have made, including the products (or services) you have bought from us.
We do NOT knowingly collect or store anything that is categorised as sensitive under the terms of the GDPR, including racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, health, sex life or sexual orientation, and genetic and/or biometric data.
We use this information to provide you with the products and services we offer and to make your experience easier and more enjoyable.
Principally, that means:
- Processing your order
- Keeping you up to date on what’s happening
- Improving our products and services
We do this on the basis that it is necessary to fulfil our contract with you or to meet our legitimate business interests (where of course they don’t compete with your rights).
Contractual necessity, for instance, includes identifying you, responding to enquiries you may have, providing requested services (including processing orders and refunds), allowing you to register and set up an account on our website etc.
Legitimate interest includes fraud prevention, website security, personalising your online experience, allowing you to leave reviews and keeping you informed of new products, promotions etc.
You always have the right to withhold your personal information or request that we not process it. (See more about your rights below.) However, that may result in us not being able to provide products and services to you or our service being significantly impaired.
For instance, our communications are designed to tell you about the benefits we can offer, so that you have exclusive access to our best deals. We use the information we have about you to tailor the content and try to ensure that the offers are as relevant to you as possible.
In addition, we may be required by law (legal compliance) to process your personal data - for instance, to comply with a court order.
We have to share your personal information with a number of third parties to allow us to provide the services we do.
For instance, processing your order involves sharing information with our payment service providers (who process the payment), our warehouse provider (who prepares your order for despatch), our couriers (who deliver the order to you), our email service provider (who send out the order confirmation email) and our independent review partner (who will email you to invite you to leave a review of your order).
Keeping you up-to-date regarding new products etc. involves sharing your information with our data marketing agency and our email service provider (who we use to send out the marketing emails), plus we use digital marketing networks, specific services (like Google Match and Facebook Custom Audiences) and various advertising partners to ensure we only show you adverts that are relevant to you.
Analysing sales and customer behaviour involves sharing information with our data marketing agency, as well as technology providers who help us understand how we can provide you with better products and a better service.
In all instances, we share only the minimum information required and we have agreements in place with all these partners to ensure that they treat your personal information with the same care that we treat it.
We will ordinarily send you an email confirming the order; a further email when the order has been despatched (with tracking number); and, if you return any part of the order, an email confirming that you have been refunded.
In addition, you will receive an email about 10 days after you have placed the order from our independent review partner inviting you to leave a review of your purchases on our website.
We would like to contact you by the email to show you our new products let you know about promotions, let you know about events etc.
When you place an order with us, therefore, you should expect to receive marketing emails from us unless you opt out at the point of creating an account or during the checkout process.
However, you have the right at any stage to change your mind and unsubscribe (or indeed resubscribe). Please see below for details
If you no longer wish to receive marketing communications from us, we're committed to making it as easy as possible to unsubscribe.
Every marketing email we send out has an unsubscribe link at the bottom. Alternatively, you can email us directly at email@example.com to let us know what marketing communications you want - or don’t want - to receive and we will adjust your preferences accordingly.
Please note that we will act on all requests as quickly as possible.
You have the right to know what personal data we hold and how it is being processed.
You should make any request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to:

We will ordinarily provide the following free of charge and within 30 days of the request:
- Confirmation of what personal data we hold about you and where it is held;
- A copy of the data;
- Any supporting documentation
However, please note that we may charge a fee if a request is deemed excessive or unfounded. We may also extend the time period to respond by a further 60 days if the request is very complex or we are responding to numerous requests.
In either instance, we will contact you to explain the reason for any delay/fee.
You have the right to ask us to remove any personal information that you no longer want us to hold (unless we are required by law to retain it).
You should make any request by email to email@example.com or by post to the above address).
We will delete or anonymise any information that is stored by us (or by any third party who processes the data on our behalf).
However, please note that we can only do this when an order is complete - and, after your data has been deleted, we will not be able to identify you, so we cannot accept any returns or answer questions around previous orders etc.
You should make any request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org (or by post to the above address), specifying what information you believe to be incorrect and what the correct information is.
Please note that in all the above instances we will ask you to provide proof of your identity to ensure that you are the owner of the personal information in question. We reserve the right not to comply with the request if we are not satisfied that the proof of identity provided.
We keep your information on our databases until you ask us to delete it or for as long as it is relevant. That means we will delete it if you have not interacted with us for a while and we believe you have no intention of doing so in the future.
The exact time period for this is kept under constant review.
We have security measures in place to restrict access to your data, to maintain data integrity and to prevent data loss.
Data can only be accessed or processed by employees of Turnstone AV Ltd or third parties with whom we have appropriate contractual arrangements.
We use technologies like SSL, password protection and encryption to ensure that it is stored and transmitted securely
And we regularly review all procedures, including how – and how much - information is stored in order to minimise any risk
However, while we will always do our best to keep your data secure, we cannot completely guarantee the security of data transmitted to us. For instance, if you use a password to access your account online, please make sure you keep the password to yourself. Any transmission of data is always at your own risk.
Please read the following Cookies Policy which should help to explain what we do with the information we collect and why it is so important.
However, some cookies are fundamental to the operation of the site, allowing you to navigate your way through it, add products to your basket and indeed to purchase them.
Other cookies help us measure and analyse how you use the website to improve your shopping experience and the overall performance of the website.
Others can remember preferences to save you time when you visit the site. And others help us do things like send you emails to remind you that you have items still in your basket or to deliver adverts that are relevant to you.
If you do want to delete or block cookies, you can do so by altering the settings on your browser (via the Settings menu). However, it may well mean that you are unable to use the website

However, a lot of these cookies – so-called “session” cookies – will be automatically deleted at the end of each session, normally when you close the browser or turn off the device.
Others – “persistent” cookies - will have a time limit and will be deleted when they reach their expiry date or when your browser deletes them.
