We employ other companies to deliver your purchases. Such companies and individuals will have access to personal information needed to perform these functions, but may not use it for any other purposes and are required to process the data in accordance with the UK's Data Protection legislation.
When you order, we need to know your name, e-mail address, delivery address, credit or debit card number and the card's expiry date. This allows us to process and fulfil your orders and to notify you of the status of your order. We also give you a password that will enable you to log in and retrieve details of your order and whether it has been acknowledged, packed, shipped etc.
As an extra security measure we only will post goods to the address that your credit/debit card is registered to. This is a measure that many online businesses have decided to implement to cut down on internet credit card fraud.

There are two main types of cookie:
1) Transient (or per-session) cookies - only last for the duration of your visit to a site. They are used to recognise you as you move from page to page, for example, recording the items you add to an online shopping basket. They are deleted when you leave. Such cookies can also help maintain session integrity and security.
2) Persistent (or permanent) cookies - remain on your machine until they expire or until they're deleted. Many will be built with an automatic deletion date to ensure that they delete themselves harmlessly at this time, thereby ensuring that your hard drive doesn't get filled up with these tiny files. Often this type of cookie is used to store and re-enter login information for you, so that you don't need to remember long site membership numbers.
