We use this information to provide our website to you, as well as get insights on how people use our website, so we can make it better.

What we do with the information we gather?
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, in particular for the following reasons:
- Internal record keeping
- Social Media
- We may use the information to improve our products and services
- If you opt in to our monthly customer newsletters you will receive this on a monthly basis (you can opt out of receiving these emails at any time)
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Our website may contain links through to other websites (Worldpay and Paypal). However, once you have used these (when purchasing through our webshop) to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. All other payment processing service sites have their own privacy policies which you are able to view on their respective sites.
