Where we store your personal data
All information you provide to us is stored on third party secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology by our third-party e-commerce platform provider. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
When you pay for a product on our site, the transaction is carried out using Sage Pay’s secure payment gateway; however, Shopify also stores your credit/debit card information. Shopify encrypts the card information through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, and your purchase transaction data is stored by Shopify only as long as is necessary to complete your transaction. After the transaction is complete, the purchase transaction information is deleted.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site, and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes, or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at: email@example.com.
Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers, and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive.

We use the following cookies:
- Strictly necessary cookies.These are cookies that are required for the operation of our site. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to browse our site, use its features, and access secure areas. The use of these cookies is essential for our site to work, and we do not use these cookies to collect personal information about you. For example, we use user-input cookies for the duration of a session, to keep track of a user’s input when filling in forms that span several pages.
- Analytical/performance cookies. We use performance cookies to collect information about how you use our site, and how often. These cookies only gather information for statistical purposes, and do not gather any information that can personally identify you. However, because these cookies are not strictly necessary for the use of our site, we require your consent to use them. The performance cookies we use include:
- First party analytics cookies. We use these cookies to estimate the number of unique visitors, to improve our site, and to detect the most searched for words in search engines that lead to a webpage. These cookies are not used to target you with online marketing. We use these cookies to learn how our site is performing, and make relevant improvements to improve your browsing experience.
- We also use Google Analytics and other third party analytics providers to help measure how users interact with our site content. These cookies “remember” what our users have done on previous pages and how they have interacted with the site. For more information on Google Analytics, visit Google’s information page. For instructions on how opt out of Google Analytics, see below.
- Functionality cookies.These are used to remember choices you have made or information you have provided, such as your username, language, or the region you are in. This allows us to tailor your site experience specifically to your preferences. For example, authentication cookies are functional cookies that are used for the duration of a session (or persistent, if you agree to the “remember me” function) to allow users to authenticate themselves on subsequent visits, or to gain access to authorised content across pages. The functional cookies we use include:
- User-centric security cookies to detect authentication abuses for a limited persistent duration, like repeated failed login attempts. These cookies are set for the specific task of increasing the security of the service.
- Multimedia content player session cookies (flash cookies) are used for the duration of a session to store technical data needed to play back video or audio content (for example image quality, network link speed, and buffering parameters).
- Load balancing session cookies are used for the duration of the session to identify the same server in the pool in order for the load balancer to redirect user requests appropriately.
- User interface customization persistent cookies are used to store a user’s preference regarding a service across web pages.
- Targeting cookies. These cookies are used on our site to tailor marketing to you and your interests, and to provide you with a more personalised service in the future. These cookies remember that you visited our site, and we may share this information with third parties, such as advertisers. Although these cookies can track your visits to our site and other sites, they typically cannot personally identify you. Without these cookies, the advertisements that you see may be less relevant and interesting to you. We do not use third-party advertising cookies.
- Social plug-in tracking cookies.These cookies are used by many social networks that have “social plug-in modules”. We integrate these modules to provide services that can be considered as “explicitly requested” by our users. Your consent, however, is required because some third party social plug-in tracking cookies are used for things like behavioural advertising, analytics, and/or market research.
How long will cookies remain on my computer or mobile device?
The length of time that a cookie remains on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies last until you stop browsing, and persistent cookies last until they expire or are deleted. Most of the cookies we use are persistent and will expire between 90 days and two years from the date they are downloaded to your device. See the section below on how to control cookies for more information on removing them before they expire.
What about Social Buttons?
