Storing Your Personal Data


Whilst operating our website, we may be required to transfer data we have collected from you to locations outside of the European Union for processing and storing.  By providing us with your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing and processing.  We do our utmost to ensure we take all reasonable steps to ensure your data is stored securely.

SSL is a communications protocol for transmitting private information over the internet.  It works by encrypting data that is transmitted over the SSL connection. This website employs RapidSSL and industry-standard SSL to provide secure credit card transactions.  When you place an order, your credit/debit card information is encrypted prior to transmission over the internet using an SSL connection, so no-one can read or access the data being transmitted.
