Online Security
This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

When our order form asks users to enter sensitive information, that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'.

Cookies are small text files placed on your computer and are commonly used on the internet. We use non-persistent cookies on this web site for the sole purpose of your order information to be processed.

Please note that some parts of our website may not function properly if you reject cookies. Please refer to your internet browser’s help section for specific instructions.

Off-line Security
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.

Any information that we collect about you is for the purpose of processing your order. This information will only be used lawfully in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. It will be held by us for no longer than is necessary for the purpose of processing and dispatching your order and/or to rectify any delay or loss before the document has been delivered. Your name, address and email address will not be kept or used for any marketing purposes by us and we will not pass on this information to anyone else. We will ensure that all information that you have supplied is safely and securely deleted or shredded once you order has been processed.

Online payment
We use 'SagePay' as our online payment facility provider. The 'SagePay' payment system uses a combination of established and innovative techniques to ensure the security and integrity of all sensitive data.

When an order is placed online via our website we are not supplied with your card information. We are therefore unable to make any additional or unauthorised payment transactions. However, we do have the facility to make refunds without being privileged to any card information.
