We just don't do that sort of thing.

Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.

Information we may collect from you

We collect personal information about you when you provide it to us, such as through your use of our website and its features, when you contact us directly by email, phone, in writing, when you order goods and services or via social media.

The type of information we collect about you may include information such as:

Except as set out in this policy or otherwise agreed, we do not publish, share, trade, sell or otherwise disseminate any of the information or data registered or provided to us to any other party.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL / TLS technology. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.
