We are committed to protecting your privacy; we will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998). We collect information about you for 2 reasons: firstly, to process your order and second, to provide you with the best possible service.
This is the way we handle information:
Our Web server automatically recognizes only the visitor's domain name (not the e-mail address) and records the visitor's browser and platform type (e.g., Netscape browser on Microsoft platform).
When a visitor gives us an e-mail address while placing an order, or when visitors send us e-mail correspondence, we retain the visitor's e-mail address. We contact visitors by their e-mail address to confirm an on-line order, to respond to a sender's e-mail query and occasionally to inform customers about new products and promotions.
We retain information provided by our visitor, such as registration information, transaction information (e.g., dates on which customers made purchases, amounts and types of purchases) and contact information (e.g., name, address, phone number). On request with verification, we will give the visitor a reminder with unique identifier information (e.g., customer password). Visitors also have with the ability to correct inaccuracies in contact information and unique identifiers.
If you request a catalogue be mailed to your postal address, you will be placed on our mailing list and you will receive periodic mailings from us with information on products and promotions.
Visitors who give us their telephone numbers online will only receive telephone contact from us with information regarding orders they have placed online.
We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving customer data exchanged with our site server.
