During the ordering and registration process, we ask for personal information which both identifies you and enables us to communicate with you.
We will use this information that you provide and other information that we collect automatically only for the following purposes:
- To enable us to fulfil your orders with us, quickly and efficiently.
- To send you newsletters and details of offers and promotions in which we believe you will be interested. You can subscribe or un-subscribe from this service at any time by visiting our Mailing List page.
- To perform other such general marketing and promotional activities of our products and services.

We may, unless you instruct us otherwise, continue to use your personal information in the manner above for a period after you cease being a registered user. We will not transfer your personal information outside of the European Economic Area unless otherwise specifically advised.
We provide an administration service (your account) where you can review your personal information at any time to ensure it is correct and current.
You will be able to update, correct, change or delete inaccurate details. You may also change your choice of opting in or out of marketing and promotional activities, although you may continue to receive mailings for a short period while your change is being processed.
You have the right to ask for a copy of your personal information on payment of a small fee.
