What we do with the information we gather
All the information we collect is used to understand your needs, personalise your use of the site, provide you with a better service, and improve the site generally. In particular, we require this information in order to:
Process your orders
Technically administer the website
Improve our products and services
Customise the website according to your interests

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. Our checkout process is secured by HTTPS / TLS encryption and it is safe for you to purchase from our site. TLS (Transport Layer Security) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and secure. TLS is the industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.
Additionally, our site only works with payment gateways that offer the highest level of security certification (PCI DSS Level 1). You can, therefore, rest assured that we take the privacy and security of your payment and personal details very seriously.
You can tell whether a page is secure as ‘https’ will replace the ‘http’ at the front of the website address and a small padlock will appear next to this or in the bottom bar of your browser window.
Links to other websites
Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information that you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
