Privacy Policy
This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their personal information is being used online and stored electronically, and to meet the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context.
Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your personal information in connection with our business.
What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our blog, website or app?
When ordering or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card information or other details to help you with your experience.
What personal information do we collect from the people that call in to our warehouse, or place an order by phone?

When ordering in our warehouse or by phone, you may be asked to provide your name, email address, mailing address, phone number and other details to help you with your experience.
If calling in to our warehouse this information is also recorded to meet the trading requirements of our premises.

Card Payments

If ordering online or in our warehouse your credit or debit card details are securely encrypted and are not stored or accessible to us.
If ordering by phone for delivery, we will need to take your card details. However, we will take payment at the earliest opportunity and then destroy any record of your card details. If we are unable to fulfil your phone order within 48 hours, then we will not take your details at that time, but will call you back once the product is available.
If you prefer not to pay by card, then we can offer an alternative on request.

Do we use ‘cookies’?
Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognise your browser and capture and remember certain information.
For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.
We may also use trusted third-party services that track this information on our behalf.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Since browser is a little different, look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.
In summary, we use cookies to:
       Help remember and process the items in the shopping cart.
       Understand and save users’ preferences for future visits.
       Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions.
If users disable cookies in their browser:
If you turn cookies off, some of the features that make your site experience more efficient may not function properly.
Google and other third-party vendors
We, along with third-party vendors such as Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick Dynamic Advertising Reporting & Targeting (DART) cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to our website.
Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to our users based on previous visits to our site and other sites on the Internet.
Users may opt-out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google Ad and Content Network privacy policy.
We use Google AdSense Advertising on our website, and have implemented the following:
       Google Display Network Impression Reporting
       Demographics and Interests Reporting
       DoubleClick Platform Integration
Google’s advertising requirements can be summed up by Google’s Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personal information unless we provide users with advance notice.

We may also release information when it’s release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.

However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
