Visitors to our Website who purchase our products will be asked to enter basic personal information. This information is stored securely on our database and is not made available to third parties, beyond the essential requirement for credit card validation during purchase. The information is used solely for our billing, payment and sales analysis purposes, and notifying customers and partners of future updates to our products. We offer a range of email newsletters which we send only to those customers who have opted in to our mailing list or who have purchased Goods from us. Customers may opt out from receiving a newsletter by either clicking on the link provided in the newsletter or by changing their contact details via our website.

We do not receive or store any credit card information. This information is taken and processed on our behalf by the secure servers of PayPal. PayPal may need to transfer some information outside the EU area for the purposes of credit card validation and authentication. Telephone credit card transactions may be completed either by PayPal or Streamline. In the latter case, credit card details are destroyed as soon as the transaction has been processed.


Cookies are small text files that are created by a web server and stored on your computer when you visit a website. They don't do anything, i.e. they are not executable code and can only be read by (you and) the website that created them. Cookies are widely used across the internet: you may have hundreds of cookies on your computer at any one time. Many websites use cookies to improve your browsing experience e.g. remember your log-in details, record which items you have selected to purchase, or even tailor what content is displayed depending on your preferences. Cookies can also be used to record 'analytics' data i.e. which web pages you visit, whether or not you arrived at the web page by clicking on an advertisement or an affiliated website. Many websites, including us, find the collection of analytics data valuable in improving the quality and content of their web sites.
