Privacy Notice

We would like you to know how we handle the information which you send to us via the internet.

Any personal information we collect from you will be used in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The following privacy notice describes the information and privacy practices for Angus Maciver Ltd. By providing Angus Maciver Ltd with your personal information, you consent to the information practices described in this policy.

Users less than 16 (sixteen) years old are not allowed to consent to the processing of personal information without parental authorisation.

Who we are

In this privacy policy, references to “we” and “us” are to Angus Maciver Ltd, 2a Rigs Road, Stornoway, HS1 2RF.

Under the GDPR, we are the controller for the data processing related to the activities of the website. There is a designated Data Protection Officer ('DPO') to ensure that the website processes personal information in compliance with the GDPR. The DPO can be contacted for any enquiries at the following email address:


Collection of Information and how we use it

The information we collect via our website include:

  • Personal details you type in and submit (name, email address) to submit a contact form or register for our e-newsletter. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are correct and to check every now and then that you are happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

  • If, and when, you purchase merchandise online your name, IP address, billing & delivery address, email and contact number will be stored in our website. This information is necessary in order to fulfil the order and also for the Customer Service to assist customers on enquiries and for any related necessity, before or after the sale (for instance, with respect to the order delivery status, or on product returns). Personal information related to orders will be stored as long as required to comply with contractual obligations and with the applicable tax and financial reporting obligations. As full reliance for payment verification is given to third party payment processors (e.g. Paypal), we do not process or store any financial information belonging to customers. Failure to provide the personal information required at checkout will prevent users from completing an order on the website. Based on our legitimate interest to improve our relationship with customers, we may send to email communications with product suggestions, discounts, feedback requests or other updates. Customers are always free to unsubscribe from such email communications (for instance, by clicking on the 'unsubscribe link' at the bottom of each email).

  • Data which allows us to recognise you, your preferences and how you use this website. This data is collected by cookies from your navigation around the site. See our full Cookies policy in the Cookies section below.

  • When someone visits  we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.



Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. The cookies store information only for as long as you are viewing the website. We use cookies on this website to ensure that our site is working properly, and we may also use them to ensure that any advertising campaigns are effective. Another way we could use cookies is to tailor the website to the visitor’s needs, for example, to vary the information first time and frequent visitors see. This ensures that each visitor is given the most relevant content.

We may use any of the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of the website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.

  • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to the website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences.

  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to the website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.


Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.


Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to access all or parts of our site or to fully experience the interactive features of the services or websites you visit.


Data Retention

We will store personal information for as long as it is needed to provide users and customers with the required services or to meet legal or tax obligations or for the minimum period prescribed by the law. In order to determine the appropriate retention period for personal information stored by the website under user consent, we will take into account multiple factors to ensure that personal information is not stored for longer than the necessary or appropriate period.


Such criteria include:

  • The purpose for which we hold personal information; Legal, tax and regulatory obligations in relation to that personal information;

  • The type of ongoing relationship with the concerned user or customer (how often the user logs into their account, how regularly they browse or buy on the website, etc.); Any specific user request in relation to the deletion of personal information;

  • Legitimate business interests;


We will promptly delete or anonymise personal information that is no longer needed or retained according to the law.
