How and why do we collect information from you?
If you place an order with us, you will be asked to provide us with personal data, such as names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses.

Additionally, we hold this information on an internal database, allowing us to review our business progress, for example, popular products/ranges, and reasons for purchase.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information
Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
If you would like your personal data removed from our database once your order is complete, we will be more than happy to do so and will action immediately upon your request.
You also have a choice about whether or not you wish to receive information from us. If you do not want to receive direct marketing communications from us about the work we do and our exciting products and services, then please advise us and we will action this immediately.
We will not contact you for marketing purposes by email, phone or text message unless you have given your prior consent. We will not contact you for marketing purposes by post if you have indicated that you do not wish to be contacted. You can change your marketing preferences at any time by contacting us by email: email@example.com or telephone on 07796 690 288
