You may select Guernsey or Jersey (regardless of which island you are on) as the shipping destination Country/Nation. This will ensure you are not charged VAT.

Inspirational by Design Ltd T/A Dalaco (“We” or “us”) are committed to protecting and respecting your personal data and privacy. This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we treat it.
For the purpose of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (“the Act”) we are registered as a Data Controller with the Information Commissioner’s Office (Registration Reference No A8273178) and a description of how we use personal information is included in our entry on the data protection register which is maintained by the Information Commissioner’s Office.
Information we may collect from you
Under GDPR we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We have procedures and security features in place that aim to keep your data secure once we receive it. We may collect and process the following data about you:
- Information you give us. You may give us information by paper, corresponding with us via email, social media, phone, fax, by contacting our staff, one of our sales agents or otherwise. This includes information you provide when you visit our websites, use our services, network, and correspond with us.

Legal Basis we rely on
The GDPR protection sets out a number of different reasons for which a company may collect and process your personal data including:
Consent – in specific situations, we can collect and process your data with your consent e.g. when you tick a box to receive email newsletters
Performance of a Contract – we need your personal data to enable us to perform a contract and deliver our products and services
Legal compliance – If the law requires us to, we may need to collect and process your data – e.g. we can pass on details of people involved in fraud or other criminal activity or details to HMRC
Legitimate interest – in specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interest in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests’ e.g. to carry out our marketing activities and seeking your consent when we need to contact you.
Why do we collect information about you?
We need to collect and hold information about you, for a variety of reasons including:
- the delivery of our products and services
- confirming your identity to provide some product and services
- contacting you by post, email or telephone

- processing financial transactions
- preventing and detecting fraud and corruption in the use of funds
- making sure we meet our statutory obligations including those related to diversity and equalities
We may not be able to provide you with a product or service unless we have enough information, or your permission to use that information.
How we use your information
We will use the information you provide in a manner that conforms to the GDPR Act. We will endeavour to keep your information accurate, up to date and not keep it for longer than is necessary. In some instances the law sets the length of time information has to be kept.
We will process your information for the following purposes:
- to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us and to provide you with information, products and services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you (where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes or by Legitimate Interest)
- to monitor and improve our performance in responding to your request
- to allow us to be able to communicate with you and provide products and services appropriate to your needs

- to allow the statistical analysis of data so we can plan the provision of our products and services
- to notify you about changes to our services

We also embrace the use of social media and may wish to process any comments made public by you.
How we protect your information
Our aim is not to be intrusive, and we won’t ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions. The information you provide will be subject to rigorous measures and procedures to make sure it can’t be seen, accessed or disclosed to anyone who shouldn’t see it.
We will not disclose your personal information that you provide to us, to anyone else without your permission, except in the few situations where disclosure is required by law, or where we have good reason to believe that failing to share the information would put someone else at risk. You will be told about this.
We will not keep your information longer than it is needed taking into account the following:
- Whether we have any legal obligations to continue to process your information (imposed by relevant law or regulations)
- The purpose(s) and use of your information both now and in the future (such as whether it is necessary to continue to store that information so we can continue to perform our obligations under a contract with you or a contract in the future)
- Where we have a legal basis to continue to process information (such as your consent)
- How difficult it is to ensure that the information can be kept up to date and accurate – and –
- Any relevant surrounding circumstances (such a the nature and status of our relationship with you)
Ways in which we collect and use information
We will keep your information within the organisation except where disclosure is required or permitted by law or when we use third party service providers to supply and support our services to you. We use trusted third parties including IT companies who support our websites, Exact who provide our accounting software, HM Revenue & Customs, accountants, couriers, fraud management, secure document disposal service, and to administer our mailing list for e-newsletters with an organisation called Mail Chimp. If you have purchased from us and used a credit or debit card with us, we will share transaction details with companies which help us to provide this service (such as Visa and MasterCard).
If we use products or services which process personal information, we will only use GDPR compliant companies to help deliver our services, we will only provide information they need to perform their specific service and we will work closely with them to ensure your privacy is respected at all times. These providers are obliged to keep your details securely, and use them only to fulfil your request. If we do transfer any information outside the European Economic Area (EEA) we will ensure the following safeguards:
- Transfer to a non-EEA country with privacy laws that give the same protection as the EEA.
- Put in place a contract with the recipient that means they must protect the data to the same standards as in the EEA
- Transfer to organisations that are part of Privacy Shield. This is a framework that sets privacy standards for data sent between the US and EU countries. It makes sure those standards are similar to what is used in the EU. You can find out more about data protection on the European Commission Justice website.
We may disclose information to other partners where it is necessary, either to comply with a legal obligation, or where permitted under GDPR.
We will inform you if we record or monitor any telephone calls you make to us and obtain your consent to do so. This will be used, to increase your security, for our record keeping of the transaction and for our staff training purposes.
Please remember that transmission of information over the internet is not secure and if you submit any information to us over the internet (such as emails, or via our website(s) or by any other means you do so at your own risk. If you email us we may keep a record of your contact and your email address and the email for our record keeping of the transaction. For security reasons we will not include any confidential information about you in any email we send to you. We would also suggest that you keep the amount of confidential information you send to us via email to a minimum and use our secure online services or post.

If you apply to work for us (directly or indirectly) in any role (including volunteers) we may receive data about you from third parties. In addition, we will keep the details of your application and any additional information provided to us by you or others during your application so that we can keep you informed of future opportunities that you may be interested in.

We will need to record your personal contact details to be able to respond to, and track the progress of, your request.
