At Robert Goddard we take your privacy and online security incredibly seriously. We appreciate the importance of protecting your privacy and want to be open and transparent with how we use cookies and store your data.

The controller of your personal data is Robert Goddard Limited (company registration number 6530796) – so that means that we are responsible for looking after you.


We appreciate that it is your choice to provide us with your information, however, without your relevant personal details, we may not be able to complete your order or provide you with our best customer experience.

The only personal data collected directly through the order process: your name, postal address, billing address, email address and gender.

We do NOT store any credit card details nor do we share these details with any 3rd parties. The only 3rd parties who we must pass your details onto are trusted companies which we use to fulfil the contract we have with a customer – e.g. DPD, Royal Mail, Trustpilot.





To process and deliver your order to your door

Obviously, if you’ve made an order with us you want to receive it, so we need to use your details to send out your order!

As per our contract with you, this information is necessary to complete your order

To take payment and refund your order

Unfortunately, we can’t give you your order for free so we’ve got to do this to complete the transaction and possibly refund. Also, it helps us prevent fraudulent orders

All of our payments go through extremely secure payment systems – don’t worry we do not store your information!

To keep you updated with the process of your order

One of the best parts about making an order is anticipating the arrival and this way makes sure you know its every move

Again, as per contract, we need to have an email address to process your order, however providing us with a mobile number is up to you – but it makes it far easy to stay updated

To contact you should there be any queries or issues

On a rare occasion, we may run into an issue regarding your order, we will need to directly contact you

Once the order has been placed you will have given us your email and potentially a phone number
