Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorised access.
Changes to this policy
The Data Protection Act (the "Act") has various provisions which ensure that any person who has access to your personal information must comply with strict rules.
The Act provides the following principles, which we follow at all times:
• We will process your data fairly and lawfully.
• We will obtain your data only for specified and lawful purposes, and shall not use it for any other purpose.
• We will ensure that personal data held shall be adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purpose for which it is held.
• We will ensure that personal data shall be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date.
• We will ensure that personal data shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose.
• We will ensure that personal data shall be processed in accordance with your rights under the Act.
• We will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect any personal data from any destruction, damage or loss.
• We will not transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area unless that country or territory ensures an adequate level of protection.
The Data Protection Act gives you the right to access and check information held about you. Should you wish we can provide you with all the information that we hold about you on payment of £10 for each request, which is to meet our costs in providing this information to you.
We control and operate our site from the UK (regardless of where hosting servers are located). All matters relating to the site are governed by the laws of England and Wales, without reference to conflict or choice of law principles. You agree that jurisdiction and venue for any legal proceeding relating to the site shall be the courts of England and Wales. We do not warrant or imply that the Site or materials on it are appropriate for use outside of the EU. If you are located outside of the EU, you are solely responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws.
If for any reason any part of this policy is found to void or unenforceable, it will be deemed severed from the remainder of the policy, which will continue in full force and effect.
British Condoms and GDPR
Putting you in control: data protection is getting more personal
Every time you shop online, use an app, stream music or a movie or even 'like' a social media post, you generate data. The scale is huge – every minute of every day, Google performs 3.6 million searches, spammers send 100 million emails, Snapchatters send 527,000 photos, and the Weather Channel forecasts rain or shine 18 million times.1
To keep pace, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25 May 2018.
What is GDPR?
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It's the biggest change to UK data privacy law for 20 years and creates a single set of rules that better protects personal information for people across the EU. All organisations must review how they manage all personal data, such as customer addresses and staff details, and ensure they meet GDPR requirements.
Data Protection and GDPR at British Condoms

What we do and don't do:
- We do use data to provide you with great customer service, which includes tailoring the information we share with you to help ensure that it's relevant, useful and timely.
- We do respect your privacy and work hard to meet strict regulatory requirements.
- We do go the extra mile to protect your data.
- We don't sell your personal data to third parties.
