3.2 Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier.

3.3 If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won’t recognise you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

Notice To Our Customers In Relation To GDPR

At Morse Toad Limited, we recognise that privacy and security is a major concern. We have therefore set out below the guidelines we use for protecting your personal information. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully and check it periodically since it may change from time to time.

Morse Toad's commitment to privacy

We are legally obliged to let you know what personal information we collect about you, what we use it for and on what basis. We always need a good reason and we also have to explain to you your rights in relation to that information. You have the right to know what information we hold about you and to have a copy of it, and you can ask us to change it or sometimes delete it.

Our goal is to provide the best possible service we can. Certain data is required to enable us to provide this service like email addresses, shipping and billing addresses, and order information. We want you to be confident that we will keep your information secure, and use it both ethically and lawfully, respecting your privacy.

Our privacy policy explains in detail how we use your personal information from the moment you interact with our business through to us providing our service. It also applies to marketing other products we think you may be interested in.

The basis we have for holding your information is threefold. Firstly, if you order from us then we are entitled to process your information so that we can provide that service to you and bill you for it. Secondly, if we want to collect and use your information for other purposes, we may need to ask for your consent and, if we do, that permission must always be gained by positive action such as ticking a box. You are free to withdraw permission at any time. Thirdly, there are occasions where we use your data for ‘legitimate interests’. These circumstances, such as protecting our site from cyber attacks.

Why do you need my information?

Your personal information helps us provide the best possible service. We’ll sometimes use your details to send you offers – but you can opt out from these at any time you want by following the unsubscribe links in any email marketing.

We use your information for occasions like:

- Verifying you as a customer to detect and prevent fraud

- Confirming your order, knowing which of our products and services you're using, and being able to keep you in the loop about deliveries

- Letting you create an online account to manage your services and keep track of billing

- Getting to know you as a customer to send you emails and offers we know you'd be interested in, based on how you use our products and services

How are you keeping our data safe?

Your personal information is important to us, and we protect it as if it was our own. We have strict controls in place to make sure it’s properly protected.

For instance, if we share it with third parties (such as those that provide services to us or act on our behalf), we only do so when we know they take your privacy as seriously as we do)



What information do we collect about you?

This will vary depending on how you interact with us. For instance, if you are a customer, the data we collect might be different from that of someone who shows an interest in our products. 

Some of this information includes:

- Your contact details

- Credit card, debit card and/or other payment information (this is held temporarily to process the payment using a third party, it is not stored)

- Details of the products/services you've bought from us


This is collected when you: register for or buy a service from us, visit or browse our website, or enter a prize promotion. 

Why do you collect personal information from me?

We need to know and keep certain information about you so that we can:

- Manage your account and provide you with service, products and support

- Collect payment from you and send you important information

- Understand what you are interested in and keep you up to date with our latest offers

- Detect and prevent fraud, protect against cyber-attacks and comply with other legal and regulatory obligations.

Who do you share my data with?

We’ll sometimes need to share information with third parties to perform services on our behalf or to provide services to you. For example, we use tools like Google Analytics to better understand the visitors to our site, so that we can provide a better service.

We may also share information with other companies like Mailchimp, as these companies enable us to keep in contact with you if you have requested it.



If I think the personal information you hold is incorrect, how do I change it?

You can ask us directly to correct, update or complete your personal information by emailing us at [email protected]



How do I adjust my marketing preferences?

You can follow the unsubscribe links on the end of any of our emails.

To run fraud prevention checks

Before we provide you with a product or service, or sometimes when you use our products and services, we’ll use personal information you have given us.
