We respect – and work hard to protect - your privacy and personal information. As a family business we are concerned to ensure our bit of the internet is a safe and secure place to be.
We obviously need to hold your personal details in order to maintain your account and process your orders, but we will never sell or pass on your details to anyone (unless required to by law for some obscure reason).
We use the latest in secure technology (128 bit Secure Socket Layer) to protect your data – not just when you are paying, like most companies, but even when you are registering. So your personal information is even encrypted between your computer and our servers, preventing it from being electronically grabbed on the way past. You can tell it’s operating when the URL in your web browser changes from saying
. The ‘s’ being for ‘secure’. It’s reassuring to know.
While you are visiting our site, your web browser will store a cookie on your hard drive. This is not nearly as fattening as it sounds. Cookies are just information. Without cookies, websites would be like goldfish – when you click on a new page they’d think you are a new person; when you get to checkout they’d forget everything you put in your basket. So the kind of cookies we use help the website remember who you are and what you are doing long enough for you to use the site. When you close your browser, they’ll delete.
