What personal information do we collect?

You may give us information about yourself, such as your name, address, email address, and telephone numbers, and financial and credit card information, when, for example, you make a purchase from us. If you do not give this information, we may not be able to provide goods or services to you.

When you visit our site we may collect more information, such as the address of your Internet service provider, the name of the web page directing you, and your clicks and activity on our site.

How do we use personal information?

We may use your personal information to process your transactions and where requested subscribe you to your chosen service. You will also be offered to the opportunity to receive our quarterly newsletter.

You always have the choice not to receive marketing information. For instructions on opting out, please see the section entitled, “How do I make choices about receiving promotional communications?” below.

Will we disclose the information with others?

We do not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others.

However, we do need to share your personal information with third parties who perform services on our behalf, such as delivering packages, sending mail and emails, and processing payments. They will have access to your personal information needed to perform these services, but we will not authorise them to use your personal information for other purposes.

In addition, we may provide statistics, with personal identifiers removed, about our customers, users, sales, traffic patterns and related site functions to reputable third parties. We may use service providers to assist us to aggregate and anonymise this information, so that it does not include any information from which individuals can be identified. We do not consider this aggregated and anonymised information to be personal information and, accordingly, its use is not subject to this policy.

We may also disclose your personal information under such disclosure as required by law.
