How we keep your information safe

We do not disclose, rent or lease any information submitted to us to 3rd parties for marketing purposes, except as stated in this policy. We do not use any of your data for any reason, except as stated in this policy, but to successfully ship your order to you. You have the option to sign up for an account in the checkout process. This means that your user data is stored on our servers.
We store your name, address and telephone number if you register for an account with us. This is optional, but enables you to place further orders without having to enter your details again. Your details are also stored in relation to unregistered orders.
We do not store your credit card information. It is processed over a secure SSL/256 bit encryption system which goes through the payment provider Worldpay.
