Privacy Policy

Our mission is to curate a collection of quirky home-wares and clothing that you couldn't find on the high street.

To achieve our mission, we want to show you personalised services, products andpromotions, we think you’ll be interested in based, on information we collect from youand third parties. We only use that information where we have a proper legal basis for doing so.

We wrote this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we useit and what choices you have about it. We’ve tried our best to explain things in asimple and clear way but if you have any questions, please contact us.

We collect information in a few different ways


1. When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it

When you sign up for our mailing list or buy our products or service, you give us certain information voluntarily. This includes your name, email address, and any other information you choose to give us. If you buy something, we collect payment information, contact information (address and phone number) and details of what you bought. If you buy something for someone else, we collect their delivery details and contact information.

If you link accounts from other third party services, we also get information from those accounts. The information we get from those services depends on your settings and their privacy policies, so please check what those are.

2. We also get technical information when you visit our website

Whenever you use our website, certain information gets created and logged automatically. The same is true when you use our website. Here are some of the types of information we collect:

  • Log data. Our servers record information (“log data”), including information that your browser automatically sends whenever you visit a website, or that your mobile app automatically sends when you’re using it. This log data includes your Internet Protocol address, how you used our website, cookie data and device data.

  • Cookie data. We also use “cookies” (small text files sent by your computer each time you visit our website, unique to your browser) or similar technologies to capture log data. When we use cookies or other similar technologies, we use session cookies (that last until you close your browser) or persistent cookies (that last until you or your browser delete them). Some of the cookies we use are associated with your account (including information about you, such as the email address you gave us) and other cookies are not. For more detailed information about how we use cookies, please review our Cookie Policy.

3. Our partners and advertisers share information with us

We also get information about you and your activity outside the Southwood Social Hub from our affiliates, advertisers, partners and other third parties we work with, or other publicly available sources. This includes information about your visits to an advertiser's site or purchases you made from them, or information about your interests from a third-party service, which we might use to help to offer a great customer experience.

We keep your information only so long as we need it to provide a valuable service to you. When we no longer need to use your information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we’ll either remove it fromour systems or depersonalize it so that we can't identify you.
