Information Collected – General
Be aware that as with just about all other online organisations, submitted information may be emailed back to you (e.g. order conformation notices etc.) and related parts of our business using standard smtp email protocols. These messages, like all other normal day-to-day emails, could possibly be read by those with the right level of technical skill and inclination. Be assured that your payment card number is only ever transmitted direct to our payment gateway provider (PayPal) in ssl encrypted protocol, and is never passed through or stored on our servers.
If, at any time, you wish to have your order or contact form information removed from our active databases, please send an email entitled “REMOVE FROM DATABASE” to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will take steps to ensure that the information is deleted as soon as is reasonably practicable.

System logs and maintenance – for operation and maintenance purposes, this website and related third party services (e.g. as listed above) may collect files that record interaction with the server.

We endeavour to protect the information that you provide when using this website. For your peace of mind when ordering goods and services, we use the specialist payment card clearance services of PayPal, one of the country’s leading and most trusted payment service providers. If you access the card-payment section of this website, you will in fact be connected to PayPal’s secure facility; not our servers. Your browser will be provided with an electronic certificate confirming that you have accessed the correct payment gateway site, and all communications will be encrypted until the payment processing has been completed. Firewalls are used to block unauthorised traffic to our servers and those of our payment service provider, all of which are located in secure locations that can only be accessed by authorised personnel.
