How We Manage and Protect Personal Information


We will never share your personal information with any third parties for marketing purposes without your prior consent.  We will never sell, rent or trade your personal information.


We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information.


We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Database to be only accessed by those authorized with special access rights to our systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.


After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.


We protect all the personal information we collect.  Our computer network is protected, and information secure on password protected equipment. 


We’ll only keep information for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this notice and to fulfil our legal obligations; we’ll never keep information longer than we need.  In most cases, unless there is a sound reason for doing so, we will only keep personal data for a period of 2 years.


If you ask us to stop sending you direct marketing communications, we will; you can change your preferences at any time.


To fulfil our contract with you it’s sometimes necessary for third party providers to have access to your data so that they can perform services on our behalf.  We may need to share personal information with:


  • Service providers who work on our behalf for the fulfilment of a contract we enter into with you, for example processing card payments, mailing houses, marketing agencies, database services, website hosting or email delivery services.

  • Research companies who help us to understand our audience to enable us to improve our service.

  • Third party advertisers (such as Facebook or Google).


Anyone who provides a service on our behalf will enter into an agreement with us and will meet our data security standards. They will only use your data for the clearly defined service that they are providing.


  • The police or a regulatory or government authority investigating illegal activities.


Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of the data you transmit to our site as no transmission over the internet is 100% secure; any transmission of your data to us is therefore at your own risk.
