The privacy of our customers is of extreme importance to us.
Your personal details are held securely for the purpose of fulfilling your order and maintaining contact with you as necessary. We will not distribute your information to any third parties that are not directly involved with the processing of your order (please note that addresses and phone numbers will be given to courier companies so that delivery can be made of your purchase).
By placing an order you authorise us to contact you by email or telephone as necessary, in relation to the dispatch and delivery of that order. We will only add you to our mailing list if you specifically request it, or by ticking the box to join our mailing list at checkout.
If you do subscribe to our mailing-list, you will always be able to unsubscribe at any time by clicking on a link we provide in every mailing-list email.
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway (ie. Paypal Express Checkout) to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
If our store is acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that we may continue to sell products to you.
