Data Collection
When you place an order we use an order form for customers to request information, products, and/or services; and we collect personal information (eg. your billing/delivery address), and financial information (eg how you would like to pay for your purchase).

Contact information from the order form is used to ship purchases. Your contact information is also used to get in touch with you should we need to ask you a question about your order or to fulfil your request.

Financial information is used solely for billing for products and services. We never see your credit/debit card details.
Disclosure of Personal Information to Other Parties.
We will not disclose any information to any other other parties other than delivery services except as required for legal purposes. (e.g. your address is given to The Post Office/Royal Mail so that they may know where to deliver your order.)
Email from us.
We believe that newsletters are best sent to people who actually wish to receive them.

We will not automatically add your email address to our mailing lists without your prior consent.

We do not send random marketing emails to personal email addresses (spam).

We will not pass your email address (or any other personal or financial information) to any other businesses.
