In the unlikely event that we intend to transfer your information outside the EEA (European Economic Area) we will obtain your consent first.
The information we learn from customers helps us personalise and continually improve your shopping experience. We use the information to handle orders, deliver products and services, process payments, communicate with you about orders, products, services and promotional offers, update our records, maintain your account with us and display content such as customer wishlists and reviews.
We also use this information to improve our store and platform, prevent or detect fraud or abuses of our website and enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf. Here are the types of information we gather:
Information You Give To Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customising future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information We Gather: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use "cookies" and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses our website. A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. However, we will not be able to provide you with a personalised experience if we cannot recognise you but we want to make you aware that these tools exist.Cookies are used on most e-commerce websites including this one to keep track of the contents of your shopping cart, and to store delivery addresses if the address book is used and to store details of recently viewed products. You can turn off cookies within the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser by going to 'Tools | Internet Options | Privacy' and selecting to block cookies.
E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open our e-mails, if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not wish to receive marketing e-mails or other marketing type mail from us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
