Privacy Policy


The Chocolate Library is a trading name of Chocolate Library Limited, a company registered in Scotland under Company Number SC 328092. Our registered office is at Castlebrae Business Centre, 40 Peffer Place, Edinburgh EH16 4BB.


At Chocolate Library we are committed to ensuring that the trust you put in us by using our website is respected. We want you to feel confident that the information you share with us is being looked after and reassure you that we will never give your details to third parties. We know how important it is to get this bit right, so read our full privacy policy below.



When you buy a product on our website in order to process it, we do need to collect some of your details. We need your name and address to which to send the order. We also need a contact email address to send you an order confirmation and to alert you when the item has been dispatched. We also like to take a contact number so we can update you with tracking information or get in touch if there is an issue with your order. We hold onto this information for 3 months to ensure that if you reorder we have your details to hand. You can be assured that we hold this information securely and will never allow third parties access to your details.


Some of our personalised gifts are quite cheeky and may sometimes divulge sensitive information about the recipient, e.g. political inclinations. This is because, as a gifting company, we like to come up with ideas which are as inclusive as possible. However, as a customer, you have our word that we DO NOT use this information for any kind of profiling or customer behaviour modification.


At checkout we give you the option to sign up to our mailing list. The purpose of any correspondence will be to let you know about new products that we think you might like to see. The other reason will be to give you a special deal as one of our loyal customers. If there comes a point where we no longer make you smile we won’t make it any more awkward for you to break up with us. On any email we send, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time. We use a third party provider, MailChimp to deliver these emails. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. Also, please note that we are not in the business of buying or selling our mailing lists, and if you as a customer were to opt to subscribe to our mailing list, your consent is paramount, you have the right to request to unsubscribe at any time and we will renew your subscription with us every 12 months.


Our website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer to help the site provide a better user experience. Mainly they are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping carts, and provide anonymised tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics. In general, cookies will make your browsing experience better and more personalised. However, if you would prefer to disable cookies on this site the easiest way to do this it to disable cookies in your browser. For this, we suggest consulting the Help section of your browser.


When someone visits we may use Google Analytics, to monitor visitor trends. 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 that 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.


You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to our data protection officer
