We may use this information in the administration of this website, to improve the website’s usability, and for marketing purposes.

We use cookies on this website. A cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

We may send a cookie which may be stored on by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. We may use the information we obtain from the cookie in the administration of this website, to improve the website’s usability and for marketing purposes. We may also use that information to recognise your computer when you visit our website, and to personalise our website for you.

Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies (for example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookie by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector). This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.

You are responsible for keeping any passwords confidential. We will not ask you for your password.

Security & Order Confirmation

If You pay by credit or debit card, Your details are handled by Us on a secure server using Stripe Payments encryption. While it is impossible for any web site to be completely impregnable to fraud, Our system of a secure server and encryption offers a good level of security that You can be confident with. When You place an order to purchase a product We will send You an e-mail confirming receipt of Your order and containing the details of Your order including transaction and order reference numbers.

Your order represents an offer to Us to purchase a product which is accepted by Us when We process payment for your order. When We accept Your order, We will send a Dispatch Confirmation E-mail. Any products which We have not confirmed in a Dispatch Confirmation E-mail do not form part of that contract. If You have incorrectly entered Your email address Your confirmation and dispatch email may fail. So long as payment has been processed successfully this will in no way affect Your order.

Failure by Us to send a receipt confirmation email or dispatch confirmation email in no way invalidates Your offer or Our acceptance of your offer.
