In essence, we don't take information without you actually giving it to us and we don't pass that information on to anyone else.
Cookies are small files on your computer which contain items of data. For example, if you are visiting a shopping site and put items in your shopping cart, then details like the item, price, and quantity will probably be stored in a cookie and used when you go to the check out. You can delete cookies yourself, but most will "expire" (delete themselves) after a period of time.
Cookies are used on this site, e.g. the shopping cart requires them to work.
When you place an order we use an order form for customers to request information, products, and/or services; and we collect personal information (eg. your billing/delivery address), and financial information (eg how you would like to pay for your purchase).
Contact information from the order form is used to ship purchases. Your contact information is also used to get in touch with you should we need to ask you a question about your order or to fulfil your request.
Financial information is used solely for billing for products and services. If you use HSBC Secure ePayments we do not see your credit/debit card details, the transaction is handled by HSBC Bank on our behalf.
Any data collected by us is collected with your consent. We don't use any mechanism to collect any data that you do not directly type onto one of our forms. The only exception to this is the IP address sent with forms and the type of browser you are using (e.g. Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) so you get correctly formatted pages on your screen.
|Disclosure of Personal Information to Other Parties.|
We will not disclose any information to any other parties other than delivery services except as required for legal purposes. (e.g. your address is given to The Post Office/Royal Mail so that they may know where to deliver your order.)
We believe that newsletters etc. are best sent to people who actually wish to receive them.
We will send you emails about your current order.
E.G. Order received notification, order dispatched, invitation to write a review.
We will not automatically add your email address to our mailing lists without your prior consent.
Any emails that we do send after your order has been completed are sent only if you consent to receive them, and all carry an "un-subscribe" link at the foot of the email
We do not send random marketing emails to personal email addresses (spam).
We will not pass your email address (or anything else) to any other businesses.
This site contains links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.
Where appropriate we use industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology.
