Who We Are

Standun is a family-run business with over 70 years’ experience servicing customers, both here in our shop in Galway, and worldwide through our website. It was first started by our grandparents May and Mairtin Standun in 1946, and we are so proud to be third generation owners.

As such, we are wholly committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our customers and website visitors. We never ever sell, rent or trade your information with other companies and businesses.

Looking for more information on the what, how and where? It’s all here in our privacy policy: what it is, how we collect and secure your personal information, and where it’s stored.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information simply means any information that may be used to identify you, such as your name, phone number, email address, or mailing address.

When you complete an order on our website the information that we collect is generally used to fulfill these orders; including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations. We also use this information for

  • screening orders for potential risk or fraud
  • to communicate with you regarding your order and any issues you might have
  • to improve and optimize our website; for example, by generating analytics information about how you browse and interact with the site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns

All information received through orders, and any email enquiry or online form filled out by our visitors is kept strictly confidential - we will never share it with third parties


Simply put, a cookie (the non-chocolate chip kind) is a small text file containing an identifier that is sent by a web server (in this case, us) to a web browser on a computer (you). It’s then stored by the browser.

Cookies are used in order to make websites to their job, to work better and more efficiently. They are also used for record-keeping purposes and allow us to analyse our website and how our customers are using it.

A cookie cannot give us access to your computer or to any information that you haven’t already provided.

Cookies that we use

We use two types of cookies: essential and preference.

Essential cookies are needed for the website to work, and enable you to use our services and features, for example the product shopping cart and checkout system. These are necessary cookies - without them, the website will not perform smoothly for you. We use these mainly for:

Authentication - to identify you when you visit our website, and to help us to determine if you are logged in to our website

Security - to protect user accounts, including preventing fraudulent use of login credentials

Preference cookies collect information about your preferences and choices. We use these to remember things such as what country you visited our site from, so that we can customise the site for your next visit.

We may use cookies for the following purposes:

Personalisation - to store information about your preferences and to personalise the website for you so you get the best experience every time

Advertising - to help us to display advertisements that will be relevant to you
