INFORMATION COLLECTED - GENERAL
Be aware that although submitted information is passed to the website using secure https (SSL) internet protocols, as with just about all other online organisations, it may be emailed back to you and related parts of our business using standard smtp email protocols. These messages, like all other normal day-to-day emails, could possibly be read by those with the right level of technical skill and inclination. Be assured that your payment card number is only ever transmitted direct to our payment gateway provider (SagePay) in ssl encrypted protocol, and is never passed through or stored on our servers.
If, at any time, you wish to have your order or contact form information removed from our active databases, please send an email entitled "REMOVE FROM DATABASE" to email@example.com and we will take steps to ensure that the information is deleted as soon as is reasonably practicable.
