By now you've probably heard a lot about the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that is the new law from May 25th. 2018.
GDPR is designed to give you more choice in how you are contacted by companies, and how your data (for example your name, address, e-mail address and phone numbers) is held and used.
As a family owned business for 16 years, Red Oak Direct Limited are passionate about looking after our customers, and we hate spam as much as you do. Without subscribing to our e-mail newsletters, we will only ever contact you where required to do so as part of a necessity to complete your order and delivery, or should there be a query with an order you have placed.
