Cookie/Privacy Policy

We collect information about you to support our business interactions with you. We transmit and store this information in a secure fashion but we do not give or sell it to anyone else.

Your data may be stored and processed in the countries in which we operate or in another part of the EU.

We use cookies on your computer to remember some details of your conversations with our website.  Feel free to delete or refuse these cookies, but it may mean that our website seems forgetful about parts of our conversation with you.

Detailed statement of Privacy Policy

We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.

(1) What information do we collect?

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:
(a) Information about your visits to and use of services on this website;
(b) Information about any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any purchases you make of our goods or services;
(c) Information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us and/or subscribing to our website services and/or email notifications;

(2) Information about website visits

We may collect anonymous information about your computer and your visits to our website such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views.  We may use this information in the administration of this website, to improve the website’s usability.
We use cookies on this website.  A cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser.  The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.  This enables the web server to improve the information that we provide to you through your web browser.
We may send a cookie which may be stored on by your browser on your computer’s hard drive.  We may use the information we obtain from the cookie in the administration of this website, to improve the website’s usability and to help shape our marketing.  We may also use that information to recognise your computer when you visit our website, and to personalise our website for you.

Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies.  (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookie by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector.)  This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites including ours.  It will, of course, do no damage if you delete our cookie after the completion of your visit to our website.

(3) Using your personal data

Personal data submitted on this website will be used for the purposes specified in this privacy policy or in relevant parts of the website.
In addition to the uses identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may use your personal information to:

(a) Improve your browsing experience by personalising the website and to connect or correlate one usage of our website with another usage at another time;
(b) Send information (other than marketing communications) to you which we think may be of interest to you by post or by email or similar technology;
(c) Send to you very occasional marketing communications relating to our business which we think may be of interest to you by post, email or similar technology.  You can inform us at any time if you no longer require marketing communications to be sent to you by replying to any of our emails after having changed the subject to ‘Unsubscribe’;
(d) Provide other companies with statistical information about our users – but this information will not be used to identify any individual user.
We will not without your express consent provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.

(4) Other disclosures

In addition to the disclosures reasonably necessary for the purposes identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may disclose information about you:

(a) To the extent that we are required to do so by law;
(b) In connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
(c) In order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk); and
(d) To the purchaser or seller (or prospective purchaser or seller) of any business or asset which we are (or are contemplating) selling or purchasing.

Except as provided in this privacy policy, we will not provide your information to third parties.

(5) International data transfers

Information that we collect may be stored and processed in and transferred between any of the countries in which we operate in order to enable us to use the information in accordance with this privacy policy.
Information which you provide may also be transferred to and stored for business purposes within the countries in the European Union.

(6) Security of your personal data

We will take reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.  Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet. We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure servers.  All electronic transactions in which you communicate your personal information to our website will be encrypted using SSL technology.

From time to time we will give you an id and password with which to access information about items that you have ordered from us.  You are responsible for keeping your password confidential.  We will not ask you for your password.

(7) Policy amendments

We may update this privacy policy from time-to-time by posting a new version on our website.  You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes.

(8) Your rights

You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you.  Provision of such information may be subject to the payment of a fee.

(9) Third party websites

Our website may contain links to other websites.  We are not responsible for the privacy policies of third party websites.
