We respect and take seriously your privacy and will only use the personal information that you supply to us when using our website.
In most cases you will not need to leave any personal details on this site in order to make purchases, because most links will redirect you to the site of the supplier, who will have their own privacy policies.
If you do place an order directly with us then we will need to collect your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number and credit card information. We may record which products you are interested in and which products you purchase. This enables us to process your orders efficiently and to improve the products and service that we are offering.
There is also a registration form on the website which allows you to obtain a unique username from us in return for access to extra areas of the website and also to allow you to leave comments on an article. This registration form will be used to collect a valid e-mail address (which you must verify) and your real name, along with an option to add your own web address. At this moment in time the form does not request any further information. By leaving a comment on the site you consent to that comment and the name and optional web address you supply to be published on the website. Your email address will not be published.
We may use this information to inform you of any new products or special offers that we think may be of interest to you or about changes to our website. Please email us if you do not want us to send you this information. We will not sell, trade or rent your personal information to other companies nor will we share any of the information we collect about you to third parties.
The only exceptions to the disclosure of personal information to third parties are where we are required to by law, or where we are required to in order to supply a service to you – for example to pass your delivery details to a courier.
In accordance with Data Protection Act 1998, we may ask for proof of your identity before disclosing certain information to you.
We store information on user access to this website in terms of pages visited, and where the visitor was referred from. This is not personally identifiable data, and is used solely to enable us to ensure that we can continue to bring the best site possible to our visitors.
