Privacy Policy

I am committed to safeguarding the privacy of my website visitors; this policy sets out how I will treat your personal information.

(1) What information do I collect?

I may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:

(a) information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website including your IP address, approximate geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views and website navigation;

(b) information relating to any transactions carried out between you and me on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any purchases you make of my goods or services;

(c) information that you provide to me for the purpose of subscribing to my website services, email notifications and/or newsletters;

(d) any other information that you choose to send to me.

(2) Cookies

A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

I may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on my website. I may use the session cookies to: keep track of you whilst you navigate the website. I may use the persistent cookies to: enable my website to recognise you when you visit.

Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.

I use Charm to analyse the use of this website. Charm generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers. The information generated relating to my website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Charm will store this information. Charm’s privacy policy is available at: http://usecharm.com/privacy/

Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.

(3) Using your personal information

Personal information submitted to me via this website will be used for the purposes specified in this privacy policy or in relevant parts of the website.

I may use your personal information to:

(a) administer the website;

(b) improve your browsing experience by personalising the website;

(c) enable your use of the services available on the website;

(d) send statements and invoices to you, and collect payments from you;

(e) send you general (non-marketing) commercial communications;

(f) send you email notifications which you have specifically requested;

(g) send to you my newsletter and other marketing communications relating to my business which I think may be of interest to you by email or similar technology (you can inform me at any time if you no longer require marketing communications);

(h) provide third parties with statistical information about my users – but this information will not be used to identify any individual user;

(i) deal with enquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to the website;

Where you submit personal information for publication on my website, I will publish and otherwise use that information in accordance with the license you grant to me.

I will not provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.

All my website financial transactions are handled through my payment services provider, PayPal. You can review the PayPal privacy policy at www.paypal.com. I will share information with PayPal only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make via my website and dealing with complaints and queries relating to such payments.

(4) Disclosures

I may disclose information about you to any of my employees, officers, agents, suppliers or subcontractors insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes as set out in this privacy policy.

In addition, I may disclose your personal information:

(a) to the extent that I am required to do so by law;

(b) in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;

(c) in order to establish, exercise or defend my legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk);

(d) to any person who I reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in my reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.

Except as provided in this privacy policy, I will not provide your information to third parties.

(5) Security of your personal information

I will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.

I will store all the personal information you provide on my secure (password- and firewall- protected) servers. All electronic transactions you make to or receive from me will be encrypted using SSL technology.

Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and I cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.

(6) Policy amendments

I may update this privacy policy from time-to-time by posting a new version on my website. You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes.

I may also notify you of changes to my privacy policy by email.

(7) Your rights

You may instruct me to provide you with any personal information I hold about you. Provision of such information will be subject to:

(a) the supply of appropriate evidence of your identity (for this purpose, I will usually accept a photocopy of your passport certified by a solicitor or bank plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address).

I may withhold such personal information to the extent permitted by law.

You may instruct me not to process your personal information for marketing purposes by email at any time. In practice, you will usually either expressly agree in advance to my use of your personal information for marketing purposes, or I will provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of the use of your personal information for marketing purposes.

(8) Third party websites

The website contains links to other websites. I are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of third party websites.

(9) Updating information

Please let me know if the personal information which I hold about you needs to be corrected or updated.
