If we do not despatch your order, we do not charge you and the money is automatically put back onto your available balance by your bank. This usually takes around 3-5 working days but the exact timeframe does depend on your card issuer and your bank.

We do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to our advertisers or partners, but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users (for example, we may inform them that most search for a product rather than another). We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, living in a certain region). We may make use of the personal data we have collected from you to enable us to comply with our advertisers’ wishes by displaying their advertisement or products to that target audience.
We may disclose your personal information to any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006. We may disclose your personal information to third parties:
• In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.
• If 31st State or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets.
• If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our Terms & Conditions and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of 31st State, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data (where applicable). You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.
