Privacy Policy

 

This policy sets out how we will collect, use, disclose and protect your personal information. Personal information is information about an identifiable individual (a natural person).

We may change this policy by uploading a revised policy onto the website.  The change will apply from the date that we upload the revised policy.

 

1. WHAT WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION

When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address.

When you browse our store, we automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates. We will not send unsolicited emails and you can unsubscribe at any time.

 

2. CONSENT

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, such as email marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
