What Visitor Information Does our Website Collect?


Visitors Buying Merchandise

We do not collect sensitive information about you except when you specifically knowingly provide it. Visitors who purchase goods online are asked to enter basic personal information; name, address, telephone number and email address. They can also enter the name, address and telephone number for other people when, for example, they are sending goods as a gift.

The customer can purchase goods online via a credit/debit card if they so wish. The customer's complete credit card number is never stored on our database and payment information is deleted once the order has been processed.

In order to process credit/debit card transactions, the bank or card processing agency may require to verify your personal details for authorisation outside the EEA (European Economic Area). Your information will not be transferred outside the EEA for any other purpose.

The customer information that is stored on our database will not be made available to third parties for any reason, beyond the essential requirement for credit card validation related to the purchase. The information is used solely for our billing and payment purposes and notification to the customer of future updates to our range of products.

We take every reasonable precaution to ensure privacy and to protect member's information, particularly contact and financial data.
