Privacy and Security

It may be refreshing to know that we have actually considered the information in this policy.

In the circumstances, it is fair to say that the entirety of the following legal blurb can be summarised:

Sometimes, you will provide us with information when you interact with us.  We don’t use this information for any purpose other than assisting you in enhancing your experience of the site.

For the longer version, please read on.

Privacy, what’s it all about

We collect the information you supply to us through our registration forms, and every time you e-mail us. We also collect information automatically about your visit to our site. The information obtained in this way, which includes browsing patterns, is only used in aggregate form, and as such cannot be used to identify you.

We will update this Privacy Policy from time to time and your continued use of the site will acknowledge your acceptance.

WE DO NOT STORE ANY FINANCIAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU.  WE USE  PAYPAL TO PROCESS ALL FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS AND WE WOULD REFER YOU TO THEIR PRIVACY TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

What information do we collect ?

Every computer connected to the Internet has a domain name and a set of numbers.  When you  request a page from any Web Site, Web servers automatically recognize your domain name and numbers. The domain name and numbers reveal nothing personal about you. We use this information to examine our traffic and for security purposes.

You generally don’t have to reveal any personally identifiable information and you can decide what personally identifiable information you do provide to us.

We will only collect that information that you have chosen to provide. We will generally enable you to select how we will use this information (for example, by choosing to opt-in or opt-out of receiving special promotional offers).

You may choose to provide us with personally identifiable information if, for example, you: wish to receive email from us; contact us with an enquiry; register on the site, fill out a survey or other form with your personally identifiable information included; request us to provide you with information; enter a competition; post information to public areas of the site or participate in a promotion.

Disclosing your information

Quite simply, we will never sell your information.  Other than being forced by law we will not provide your information to any third party.

Do Children buy our products?

Do children buy our products, well not really, but they may want to look at them.  Whilst we do not provide services for children, we would recommend that if you are under 13, you use the site only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.

Promotions, marketing, e-newsletters

We may use information for internal marketing analysis, for example, to assess trends amongst our consumers or to measure the amount of traffic to our websites. We may also use your personally identifiable information in order to communicate with you about our products and services and those of our subsidiaries, affiliates, and parent companies and any of their related businesses. You will be able to choose whether or not to receive such communications when you first provide personally identifiable information to us.

Information you post on or through the public areas of the site is generally accessible to, and may be collected and used by, others and may result in unsolicited messages or other contact from others. You are encouraged to exercise caution when providing personally identifiable information about you in public areas of this site.
