When you order, we need to know your name, e-mail address, delivery address,
credit or debit card number and the card's expiry date. This allows us
to process your order and to notify you of the status of your order.
We don't charge your card when you enter your details, we process it manually
later on, when we send your order out.
We ask for your telephone number so we can contact you urgently if there
is a problem with your order. We often print this number on the address
label so the carrier can phone you if they can't find where to deliver
Protecting your information:
All orders are placed through a secure server and your order information
is encrypted before it is sent to us. We follow the procedures laid down
by the UK Data Protection Act about storing and disclosing information
and preventing unauthorised access.
Our credit card processors may give your information to third parties
to process your transaction, but they are not allowed to use that information
for anything except making sure the transaction passes through their systems
Some information may be sent outside Europe as part of the credit-card
processing system, but if this happens the same UK Laws apply and your
information is protected and secure. By sending us an order, you agree
to this temporary transfer of information while your purchase is processed.
We will not give any information you give us to anyone else, except for
processing credit card payments, or where a Court Order is obtained to
force disclosure according to UK Law.
We collect credit card information over a secure, encrypted link
We don't let anyone else have this information, except for the card-processing
