When someone visits our website we collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. We collect this information in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting the site. We will not associate any data gathered from the sites with any personally identifying information from any other source. If we do want to collect personally identifying information through the website we will be up front about this and say so. The contact forms on our website requires users to provide certain information.
We collect "personal" information from you when you provide it to us. For example, if you purchase a product from us, we may collect your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, user name and password. The details are collected only if you choose to save the details or place an order. Invoicing address, shipping address and payment details are collected to process and fulfil your order. Invoicing address and shipping addresses are retained so you do not have to enter them again. Order details are retained so you can view your order history. This provides us with default details for your order processing and sets up security (so viewing of your account details, designs and order history is password protected).
If you take advantage of special services offered by us, we may collect other personal information about you.
We are committed to protecting your privacy and will only use your information in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Under no circumstances do we rent, trade or share your Email address with any other company for their marketing purposes without your consent. We use your personal information for internal purposes such as processing and keeping you informed of your order, deal with your queries, guide and enhance your online experience, supply you with information in which you have expressed an interest and for record keeping. We may share your mailing address with select third parties. The personal information that you give us when you place an order is used to process and fulfil your order. We also use your personal information for our own internal purposes, such as providing customer support or providing, maintaining, evaluating and improving our products and services. We may need to disclose your personal information when required by law or when we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process. This includes exchanging information with others for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction; and if we determine that such disclosure is necessary in connection with any investigation or complaint regarding your use of the Site. You are entitled to ask for a copy of the information held about you at any time by contacting us. We may charge a small fee for this.
Our website may, from time to time, contain links to websites operated by third-party service providers and not by us. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of such other websites before submitting any information to them. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by our website.
The security of your personal information is important to us and we will use all reasonable endeavours to protect the integrity of the information you provide. When you enter sensitive information on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us from unauthorised access or disclosure, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We assume no liability for any disclosure of data due to errors in transmission, unauthorised third party access or other acts of third parties, or other acts or omissions.
