What Personal Data We Collect and Why We Collect It 

Personal Data

We collect various types of personal data from users and site visitors. This may include personal data such as name, email address, personal account preferences, transactional data (such as purchase information), and technical data (such as cookie information).

Sensitive Personal Data

We may also collect and retain sensitive personal data, such as data concerning health, if relevant to the services we provide. This data is collected only with explicit consent and is used strictly for the purposes for which it was collected.

Legal Basis and Consent

We collect and process personal data based on the legal basis of user consent, which is obtained explicitly where required. Personal data is also generated from technical processes such as contact forms, comments, cookies, analytics, and third-party embeds.


When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, the visitor’s IP address, and the browser user agent string to help with spam detection. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact Forms

If you use a contact form on our website, we collect personal data such as name, email address, and any other information you provide. This data is retained for customer service purposes and is not used for marketing purposes unless explicitly stated.


We use cookies for various purposes, including saving your name, email address, and website when you leave a comment. This is for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. Other cookies are used to track login status, screen display choices, and interaction with embedded content.


We use analytics to monitor and improve our website. This may include data collection through third-party providers. Users can opt out of analytics tracking if desired.

Who We Share Your Data With

We share personal data with third-party providers such as cloud-based services, payment processors, and other service providers as necessary to provide our services. For example, we use Razorpay to process payments. The Razorpay privacy policy is available here.

How Long We Retain Your Data

We retain personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. For example, we retain contact form submissions for six months, analytics records for a year, and customer purchase records for ten years.

What Rights You Have Over Your Data

You have the right to request an exported file of the personal data we hold about you or to request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
