What information do we collect, and what do we do with it?
When you make an order, we need to know your name, a contact number, an email address and your delivery address too. We also need some payment information, but this is transmitted directly to our merchant bank and returned to us as a random string of characters; we never handle or store your payment card details. This means we can process and fulfill your orders, as well as keep you as updated as possible. If you enter a competition or some kind of other promotional feature, we may ask for similar information. If you opt in at any point, we may then contact you about services, website changes and special offers tailored to you. You can opt out by simply pressing "unsubscribe" on any newsletter.
How do we protect your information?
When you place orders, our secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, as required by the UK Data Protection Act 1998, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we are able to disclose sensitive information to you.
