Privacy Policy

We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.

(1) What information do we collect?

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:

(a) information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website, such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit, number of page views and details of searches you conduct on the website;
(b) information relating to any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any purchases you make of our goods, services or downloads (including your name, address, email address and telephone number);
(c) information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our website services, email notifications and/or newsletters (including your name and email address); and

In addition, if you make a purchase via the website your bank/payment details will be collected by our payment services provider, SagePay.

(2) Cookies

We use session cookies on the website.

A cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser. Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking "Tools", "Internet Options", "Privacy", and selecting "Block all cookies" using the sliding selector. This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.

Any session cookies we send you will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser.

In addition, we use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information. Google's privacy policy is available at: http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html.
