We take your right to privacy seriously, and want you to feel comfortable using this web site. This privacy policy deals with personally-identifiable information (referred to as “data” below) that may be collected by us while you use this site.

1. Collection of data

We use a double-opt-in process for our newsletter signup. The only data you are required to provide is a valid email address. We do not rent, share or sell email addresses provided to us by our site visitors. Should you choose to register an account on this site we require only a valid e-mail address, password and a user name that has not been chosen already. We will require your billing and shipping address details when you place an oreder, but these details are only used to fulfill your order with us. We will never knowingly rent, sell or share your personal data. As on many web sites, we may also automatically receive general information that is contained in server log files, such as your IP address, and cookie information.

2. Use of data

Data may be used to customise and improve your user experience on our site. Efforts will be made to prevent your data being made available to third parties unless:

(i) provided for otherwise in this Privacy Policy;

(ii) your consent is obtained, such as when you choose to opt-in or opt-out for the sharing of data;

(iii) a service provided on our site requires interaction with a third party, or is provided by a third party, such as credit card payment via paypal.com;

(iv) pursuant to legal action or law enforcement;

(v) it is found that your use of this site violates the site editor’s policy, terms of service, or other usage guidelines, or if it is deemed reasonably necessary by the site editor to protect the site editor’s legal rights and/or property;

or (vi) this site is purchased by a third party, in which case that third party will be able to use the data in the same manner as set forth in this policy.

In the event you choose to use links displayed on this web site to visit other web sites, you are advised to read the privacy policies published on those sites.

We provide you with the ability to edit the information stored for your user account information during registration or at any time, you can request that your user account be deleted; to do so, please contact us.

7. NO GUARANTEES

While this privacy policy states standards for maintenance of data, and while efforts will be made to meet the said standards, the site editor is not in a position to guarantee compliance with these standards. There may be factors beyond the site editor’s control that may result in disclosure of data. Consequently, the site editor offers no warranties or representations as regards maintenance or non-disclosure of data.
