how we use cookies

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

  1. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA

To help protect the privacy of personal data you transmit, we maintain physical, technical and administrative safeguards and require the same of any third parties we share your personal data with. Any payment transactions will be encrypted. We update and test our security technology on an ongoing basis. In addition, we train our staff about the importance of confidentiality and maintaining the privacy and security of your personal data.

We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as personal and credit card information. SSL encryption is designed to make the information unreadable by anyone but the intended audience. This security measure is working when you see a closed padlock icon in your browser window, usually in the URL address bar.

We will only ask for payment details when you place an order over the telephone, we will never ask you to confirm any account or credit card details by email or text message. If you receive such emails or messages do not respond and contact us immediately. Credit Card details are not stored beyond completion of your order. All payments online will be taken securely through payment portals Safecharge and Paypal, card details are not fully visible to our staff. Our handling of credit card details is certified compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

As you will be aware the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal data, we will use physical, technical and administrative safeguards to prevent unauthorised access to your personal data.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
