Your privacy is very important to us and, for this reason, we want to be clear about how we collect, process and store your personal data, in compliancy with the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
What information do we process?
This is the personal data we process:
- Transactions: full name, postal address, telephone number, email address, company name (if you choose to provide that to us), payment information, payment history, credit information and order information.

What do we use your information for?
Your personal data may be used in one of the following ways:
- To improve and customise the layout and/or content of our pages.

- We may use personal information provided by you in order to conduct appropriate anti-fraud checks. Personal information that you provide may be disclosed to a credit reference or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information. This is done only to confirm your identity – a credit check is not performed and your credit rating is unaffected.
How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.
We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our
Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential.
After a transaction, your private information (credit cards details etc) will not be stored on our servers.
Yes – our website uses ‘cookie’ technology. A cookie is a small file that is stored on your computer and contains information which helps the website to identify the visitor. Cookies enable us to offer our visitors better service. During the time you are on the website, our web-server distributes a specific identity string to each visitor so that we don’t mix them all together.
