Use of Your Information
We use the information that we collect from you for one or more of the following purposes:

v. To ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer.
vi. To provide you with information about products and services we offer that we feel may interest you by post, telephone, email and/or SMS. We will send that information by electronic mail (including email and/or SMS) only if:
(i) you have consented to this, for example by opting in at the time you create an account, place an order or complete the email subscription form on our site; or
(ii) the information is about our products and services similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale or negotiation of a sale to you and you have not opted out of receiving such marketing messages; or

vii. If you have a Facebook account, we may provide you with information about our products and services through Facebook, using Facebook's "Custom Audience" feature. This feature allows us to ensure that you are receiving advertising from us that is most appropriate to you. To do this, we send your email address to Facebook in "hashed" form, which means we convert it into a string of numbers that cannot be reversed to reveal your email address. When Facebook receives the hashed data, it matches it against its own list of hashed data and if it has a hash which corresponds to your email address it will present our advertisement to you.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. We have in place a level of security appropriate to the nature of the information stored and the harm that might result from a breach of security.
Unfortunately, the sending of information via the Internet is not totally secure and on occasion, such information can be intercepted. We cannot guarantee the security of data that you choose to send us electronically and therefore sending such information is entirely at your own risk.
Payments on our Site
All payments on our site are processed by PayPal or Sage Pay. When you make a payment on our site, you are providing your payment details to the relevant third-party payment processor, and not to us.
