Privacy statement

The information we collect and how we use it

We only collect personal information that you choose to provide to us, for example through our contact form or when you purchase our products online.

When you order or enquire about our products you will need to provide us with information such as your name, address, email address, and, for payments, your credit card number and expiry date. If you have ordered products for a third party we will need to know their delivery address. This information is required in order for us to process any orders you may make. The relevant information is then used by us to organise delivery, provide you with statements of your account and to communicate with you on any matter relating to the conduct of your account and the provision of our service. Credit card details are not retained. The only information stored is a customer's transaction history, name, address and email address.

We may also use aggregate information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring website usage in order to help us develop our website and services, and may provide such aggregate information to third parties. These statistics do not include information that can be used to identify any individual.
