2 How we will use the information about you
We gather this information to allow us to process your registration, process any orders you may make and provide the goods requested.

- To determine the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns and our advertising.
Whenever we process data for these purposes we will ensure that we always keep your Personal Data rights in the highest regard and take into account all of your data protection right under any and all current UK/EU legislation.
From time to time we may provide your information to our customer service agencies for research and analysis purposes so that we can monitor and improve the goods we provide. We or our agents and sub-contractors may contact you by post, email or telephone to ask you for your feedback and comments on our goods.

5 How we protect your information
We have put in place a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information. We offer the use of a firewalled secure server.
All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our merchant banking gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorised with special access rights to such systems, and are required by law to keep the information confidential.
After a transaction, your credit card information will not be stored on our servers. We will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal information. However, you should be aware that the use of the Internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal information which is transferred from you or to you via the internet.
6 Overseas transfers

By submitting your information you consent to these transfers for the purposes specified above.

You may ask us, or we may ask you, to correct information you or we think is inaccurate, and you may also ask us to remove information that you do not want us to retain any longer.
