How do we protect your information?
We use a server certificate (also known as a digital certificate) to assure you of our identity and secure sockets layer (SSL) to encrypt data transmissions.
If you want to check our certificate/security you can do so using one of the following methods:
Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 Onwards -
Click on the gold padlock at the bottom right of your browser to bring up the details of this site's Digital ID.
Mozilla Firefox -
Click on the yellow padlock at the bottom left of your browser to bring up the security information.
Click on the padlock within the address bar of your browser to bring up the security information.
The security measures described above ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to protect your personal information. However, the nature of the Internet means that an absolute guarantee of security cannot be offered, and you should be aware that there may be a small security risk in exceptional circumstances when disclosing information online.
We are committed to complying with the Data Protection Act 1998 and have published this guide to help you understand how and why we collect information from you, to whom such information is disclosed and what your rights are. You can access our Website home page and browse our site without disclosing your personal data.
However, when you register with us you will be asked to provide certain information about yourself.
What information do we collect and how do we obtain it?
We receive information in one of two ways either directly from you when you register with us or, if requiring a credit facility, from a third party such as credit reference agencies (for example to assess your credit rating).
If you register with us you will be asked to provide certain information such as your name, address, details of your credit card (only if you are paying by credit card), telephone number and email address so that we can process and fulfill your order, notify you of your order status and inform you of special offers and promotions.
Please note: We do not at anytime store your financial details (credit/debit card numbers)
How do we use your information?
We use the information that we collect about you to:
- Process your orders
- Manage your account
- Administer this website.
- Monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop and improve the design and layout of the site.
- Notify you about enhancement to our services, such as changes to the website, new services and special offers that may be of interest.
If you have given us permission to send you information about our products and services by telephone, e-mail or in writing, you agree that by doing so we are not in breach of the Telecommunications (Data Protection and Privacy) Regulations 1999 or the Direct Marketing Association (DMA) Code of Practice.
We may also use your information for payment recovery or fraud and debt tracing.
Who do we disclose the information we collect to?
We use information about you for purposes other than the provision of a website shopping facility. As a result we may disclose your information to:
Legal and debt recovery representatives for debt collection and debtor tracing purposes.
Reputable companies to fulfil your order or process your data on our behalf.

All of our partners are committed to protecting your details and you can be assured they will not share your information with any 3rd party organisation.
Please be aware that if we are requested, by the police or any other regulatory or Government authority investigating suspected illegal activities, to provide your information and/or use your information, we are entitled to do so.
Keeping in touch with you
We want to keep you up to date with information about new ranges, special offers and improvements to this site.
If you decide you do not want us to contact you, you can request that we stop using your information and that we stop sending information to you.
You may continue to receive mailings which are already on route to you for a short period of time while your request is being dealt with.
