We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customising our online services for you, improving our online services, and communicating with you. Where you voluntarily provide personal information, the information may be used for analysis, research or customer service purposes only. We will use your data for the purpose for which it was originally provided and will not be disclosed in any manner which is incompatible with the purpose for which it was obtained. We will only disclose your data to third parties who are our employees and for purposes in relation to the services we provide to you.

Protecting Your Security
To ensure that your credit, debit or charge card is not being used without your consent, we will validate name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third party databases. By accepting these terms and conditions you consent to such checks being made. In performing these checks personal information provided by you may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of that information. You can rest assured that this is done only to confirm your identity, that a credit check is not performed and that your credit rating will be unaffected. All information provided by you will be treated securely and strictly in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
We endeavour to take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information. However, we cannot guarantee the security of any data you disclose online. You accept the inherent security risks of providing information and dealing online over the Internet and will not hold us responsible for any breach of security unless this is due to our negligence or wilful default.
