When you browse our store, we automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address, which gives us information about your browser and operating system. We also collect information using cookies. Some of these cookies are essential for making parts of the site work, like the shopping basket and user accounts. Other cookies help us to analyse web traffic and browsing behaviour so we can assess how well our site is meeting our customers’ needs. Please take a look at our cookies policy to find out more.

We will never sell, share or hire your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes without your permission.
We use other companies for credit card verification, delivery and email services. When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, you are consenting to our collecting your information and using it for that specific reason only. We do not provide your information to these companies for their own, permanent use. They are only allowed to use the information to help us fulfil our services to you.
There are some other circumstances in which we will need to share your information. They are: when we are required to do so by law; to enforce our terms and conditions of use; or to protect our rights, properties, safety, customers, or others.
How we protect your personal information
We are committed to keeping your information secure. We take all reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
Unfortunately, the transmission of data over the internet is not completely secure. We will do our best to protect your personal data but we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site. Transmission is at your own risk and we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to data you provide when you are accessing or ordering through our website. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you pay for your products by credit card, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with an AES-256 encryption. The payment gateway meets all PCI-DSS requirements and additional generally accepted industry standards. Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. Once complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
If you create an account with us, please keep your password safe. We will never send you an unsolicited email asking for user name or password details.
