All shopping websites collect personal information from customers when they shop online by using cookies. We need to do this to enable us to process your order, to let you know about the progress of any order you have placed and to make your experience a more enjoyable one. Cookies are small text files that websites send to your computer. A cookie lets our website bring up information relevant to you, for instance your name, past orders etc. Cookies make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier.
Without cookies, it would be very difficult for a website to even let a visitor fill up the shopping basket. Cookies are not computer programs, and can't read other information saved on your hard drive. They cannot be used to disseminate viruses, or get a user's email address etc. They only contain and transfer to the website as much information as the users themselves have disclosed to that website. It is possible to opt out of cookies via your browser’s cookie settings or by emailing us with a request, but if you do this you will need to place your orders by phone.
The only information we collect is:
- Your name – so we know what to call you.
- Your email address – used to confirm your order and to let you know when delivery will be made.
- Your delivery address.
- Your Mobile telephone number – we will send you a last minute reminder by text message of an imminent delivery.
- Your credit/debit card details when you place an order.
Your personal information is 100% secure, as the latest secure server technology exceeds required standards and protects your personal data to a very high level. Your credit card information is processed using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and your data is encrypted to ensure that unauthorised parties will not be able to read information that you send to us.
