When you place an order, we will require your name, home address, telephone number, credit / debit card number and card expiry date. Without this information we will not be able to process your request or notify you of your order acceptance.
As mentioned above a contact telephone number is also required so that we can contact you in the event that there is a problem with your order. We may, unless you advise us otherwise, pass this contact number to our couriers or other agents in case they need to contact you to arrange the processing or delivery.
Security Of Your Information
Our website uses the latest in secure server software to protect your information whenever you place an order or access your account information. This software encrypts all information you input before it is transferred, to minimise the risk of the data being intercepted before it is received by our systems.
We also follow a tight security procedure as required under UK Data Protection Legislation (the Data Protection Act 1998) to protect the information that we store about you from unauthorised access. We may wish to pass your details to trusted third-parties that we believe may be of interest to you. If you would prefer not to enjoy this service then please contact us to inform us of your preference.

Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. We use PGP software to encrypt your details as they are transferred to our database. It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer.
