We fully appreciate the importance of having our own privacy protected on the internet and we respect your right to that same privacy.
We will not disclose information about our customers to third parties except where it is part of providing a service to you - e.g. arranging for a product to be sent to you, carrying out credit and other security checks and for the purposes of customer research and profiling. We will only otherwise disclose your information where we have your express permission to do so.
We will not sell your name, address, e-mail address or personal information to any third party without your permission and we do not store credit card details or payment information.
