Throughout this Privacy Notice we refer to the Potter’s Site and our other products and services to which this Privacy Notice applies collectively as the “Services”.
The privacy of all our customers and visitors to the Potter’s Site is critical to us. This Privacy Notice outlines the personal information that we process about you and how we process it. It also describes your data protection rights (including a right to object to some of the processing which we carry out) and explains how to exercise them.
For all of our Services, the data controller (i.e. the company that is responsible for deciding what personal data will be collected about you and how it will be used) is Soho Flordis UK Limited, a company registered in England and Wales under company number 09651037.
If you have any questions about this Privacy Notice, please contact us as described in the Contact Details section below.
We use your personal data to allow you to use the features on the Potter’s Site, to administer your online and offline relationship with Soho Flordis, to comply with Soho Flordis’ legal obligations and to provide you with Potter’s products, services and other offerings. Some of this information will be provided by you, and others will be generated by us or provided by third parties. Click here to learn more.

This Potter’s Site may link to other third party websites which we do not have any control over. We are not responsible for the content of such web sites or for their own privacy practices, or for the way in which information about their users is treated. In particular, unless expressly stated, we are not agents for these sites nor are we authorised to make representations on their behalf.
Personal data: “personal data” means any information relating to a person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Processing: when we refer to the "processing" of your personal data in this Privacy Notice, this is used to describe all the ways in which your personal data is handled by us. This includes the collection, organisation, sharing, storage, erasure and use of your personal data.
We collect personal data about you in two ways:
We collect and process personal data about you when you interact with us and the Potter’s Site. This information will typically be provided directly by you and may include information you provide on registration or in the process of your purchase, such as your name, email address, address, telephone number, position, business name and marketing preferences.
• Basic contact details: We ask for your email address when you register to receive our newsletter.
• Communications with us: You may also provide us with information when you use our contact form to communicate with our team or ask us a question.
We may generate or collect information about you ourselves when you visit the Potter’s Site (which may inform us about you, your use of the Potter’s Site and how you arrived at the site). Such information may be collected through "traffic data" and may entail the use of "cookies" or other tracking technologies, IP Addresses or other numeric codes used to identify your computer – see the Cookies Notice for more information.
We may also get information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into your account through another service (like Google) or if you connect your account to a social media service (like Twitter), we will receive information from that service (such as your username, basic profile information, and friends list) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize via those third party sites and any options that are available.
We may also obtain information from third party services about individuals who are not yet our clients (…but we hope will be!), which we may use, for example, for marketing and advertising purposes.
We process personal data about you for the following purposes:
• As required by Soho Flordis to conduct our business and pursue our legitimate interests, in particular:
o we use your information to provide products and services you have requested, and respond to any comments or complaints you may send us;
o we monitor use of the Potter’s Site and use your information to help us monitor and improve our products, content, services and websites, both online and offline;
o we use information you provide to personalise the Potter’s Site, our products or services for you;
o we use information you provide and collected about you to investigate any complaints received from you or from others, about the Potter’s Site or our products or services;
o we will use data in connection with legal claims, compliance, regulatory and investigative purposes as necessary (including disclosure of such information in connection with legal process or litigation); and
o we use data of some individuals to invite them to take part in market research;
• Where you give us consent:
o we will send you direct marketing in relation to our relevant products and services, or other products and services provided by us (including offers and promotions or our email newsletter);
o we place cookies and use similar technologies in accordance with our Cookies Notice and the information provided to you when those technologies are used; and
o on other occasions where we ask you for consent, we will use the data for the purpose which we explain at that time;
• For purposes which are required by law:
o where we are required to hold or collect personal data to meet legal requirements on us, such as keeping health and safety records or details of purchases; and
o where in response to requests by government or law enforcement authorities conducting an investigation.
Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent, although we may have other legal grounds for processing your data for other purposes, such as those set out above. In some cases, we are able to send you direct marketing without your consent, where we rely on our legitimate interests. You have an absolute right to opt-out of direct marketing, or profiling we carry out for direct marketing, at any time. You can do this by following the instructions in the communication where this is an electronic message, or by contacting us using the details set out below.
We do not sell our users’ private personal information.
We share your personal data in the limited circumstances set out below in order to fulfil the purposes set out above:
• Subsidiaries, employees, and independent contractors: We may disclose your personal data to our subsidiaries, our employees, and contractors that need to know the information in order to help us provide our Services or to process the information on our behalf. We require our subsidiaries, employees, and contractors to process your personal data in compliance with this Privacy Notice.
• With your consent: We may share and disclose information with your consent or at your direction. For example, we may share your information with third parties with which you authorize us to do so. Where we require your consent to share your data with 3rd parties you will find these listed under Sharing with Third Parties.
• Sharing with third parties: We may share your personal data with relevant third party vendors who need to know information about you in order to provide their services to us. For example, we use vendors that help us provide our Services to you such as those that help us understand and enhance our Services (like analytics providers). We require vendors to agree to privacy commitments before we share any information with them.
• As Required by Law: We may disclose your personal data to government authorities and/or law enforcement officials if required for the purposes above, if mandated by law or if required for the legal protection of our legitimate interests in compliance with applicable laws.
• Business Sale or Transfers: In the event that any part of the Soho Flordis business is sold or integrated with another business, your details may be disclosed to our advisers and any prospective purchaser's adviser and will be passed to the new owners of the business.
Please note that we may also publically share information that has been aggregated or de-identified (i.e. so that the information could not be used to identify you). For instance, we may publish aggregate statistics about the use of our Services or, if you send us a request (for example, via a support email or one of our feedback mechanisms), we may anonymously publish that request in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
From time to time we may transfer your personal information to our group companies, suppliers or service providers based outside of the EEA for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice. If we do transfer data outside the EEA to a country that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the EU Commission, we ensure that your personal data is adequately protected via another legal mechanism. This might be through the use of model contracts in a form approved by regulators, or through an appropriate privacy scheme approved by regulators (like the US ‘Privacy Shield’ scheme). A copy of the relevant mechanism can be provided for your review on request using the Contact Details set out below.
Your personal data will be deleted once it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected (e.g. as part of a contractual relationship). In particular:
• Where we process personal data in the provision of our products or services, we do this for as long as you are an active user of our products or services and for 6 years after this.
• Where we process personal data for marketing purposes or with your consent, we process the personal data until you ask us to stop and for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your requests.

• Where we process personal data in connection with performing a contract or for a competition, we keep the personal data for 6 years from your last interaction with us.
• Where we process personal data to monitor and compile statistics about the use of our Potter’s Site, we keep the Personal Data in accordance with our Cookies Notice
• Where we process personal data to meet legal requirements, we hold this for as long as the law requires.

• The right of access: You have the right to request a copy of your personal data that we hold and process.

These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping.
