INFORMATION YOU MAY NEED TO PROVIDE TO US AND HOW IT IS USED

Through our site, or in correspondence with you regarding an order, we may collect the following information: your name, email address, phone numbers and home or delivery address. In order to process payments for your order we may also need to collect information through our payment gateway relating to your debit or credit card and your billing address. In order to provide you with a secure payment service we have partnered with Sage Pay to manage our payments. In order to learn more about how your card payment is processed you can visit the Sage Pay website: http://www.sagepay.com/secure_shopping Details from card payments will never be shared with third parties other than with our payment partner, and will only be shared in order to process the payment of your order. We will never sell any of your personal information to a third party without your permission. The information that you provide may also be used to carry out anti-fraud checks in order to protect and process payments on your debit or credit card. During an anti-fraud check your personal information, as provided by you, may be disclosed to a credit reference or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information. This is only done to verify that the correct person is using your card to make the payment and to ensure your security – a credit check is not performed and your credit rating will not be affected. Delivery information such as your name and address and contact telephone number may be shared with third parties in order to arrange delivery of your order to you at your specified delivery address. At times we may offer services where the delivery company may need to contact you by phone in order to arrange the best delivery time with you direct. Where there is a legal obligation to disclose any of the information that you have provided to us, we will provide the information as needed to any relevant regulatory body.
