PRIVACY POLICY

(Last updated 18-May-2018)

GENERAL

Your privacy is important and we have built this website with the intention of protecting your privacy and complying with the law (including GDPR).

This privacy policy sets out the basis on which any personal data collected from you through this website, or that you provide to us, is used in order to comply as fully as possible with the law.

  • This site does not collect any personal information unless it is made totally clear that we are doing so (the contact page, for example)
  • We may keep a copy of anything you send to us by the forms on this website for our records in order to fulfil your requests. That includes your name, email address, your message and for security, the IP address from which you sent your message.
  • We do not share any personal information with anyone unless we are required to do so by law or in order to process your requests or orders.
  • This website uses Google Analytics to collect anonymous statistical information about your visit.
  • The website may use cookies in order to assist with its functionality and how it appears on your screen.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT

  • We may collect and process the following data from you in the following forms:
  • A cookie, stored on the hard-drive of your computer.
  • Email communications from you via our contact page(s) or other web forms
  • Statistical information about your visit.
  • Order information from our web store including your delivery address details.

COOKIES

A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer. That data can be sent via your web browser to our website to help it process information and make decisions about how the page is displayed. For example, you may click a button to set page preferences. This information needs to be remembered for the next time you visit the site or even move to another page.

You can change the settings on your browser to not accept cookies, but that means that certain features of the website won’t work.

SHOPPING CART

The list of items in your shopping cart is stored in a cookie on your computer while you are using our website. They may be stored after you leave the site and be re-loaded so that you can continue shopping if interrupted.

We store information about your order and personal details such as delivery address so that we can process your order and deliver it to you. Your order details are retained by us for our business records and also to help us deal with your enquiries about an order at a later date.

When you come to pay for your order, you are taken to a secure third-party payment portal (for example, Secure Hosts (FDMS) or PayPal) who collect and process your payment information.

At no point do we have access to your credit card or payment details, nor does our website ever collect such information from you or any other party.

We do collect the transaction reference number from the payment portal and can use this to help track and process of your order, verify that payment has been received correctly and for refund processing.

CUSTOMER ACCOUNT

At our checkout, you have the option to create a customer account in order to help make subsequent orders faster, saving you the work of re-entering your delivery information and preferences. You can also use this to log in and review your past orders and track the progress of current orders made through our website.

We utilise the popular WooCommerce system on our website to provide web store functionality, security and confidence that your data is handled in the best possible way.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS

Our website uses Google Analytics cookies to provide us with information to help us better understand how our website is used by visitors to improve our service, determine the success of marketing or advertising campaigns etc.

This information is not shared with third parties, and we do not use this information to attempt to identify users or their personal information.
