1. The information we collect and how we use it
When you register as a user of the Website we need to know your name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, credit card number and expiry date. We also need to know details of your occupation and employer.
We gather this information to allow us to process your registration, process any orders you may make and monitor your use of the Website. The relevant information is then used by us, our agents and sub-contractors to communicate with you on any matter relating to the conduct of your account and the provision of any goods or services that you may purchase from the Website.
We may also use aggregate information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring Website usage in order to help us develop the Website and our services and may provide such aggregate information to third parties. These statistics will not include information that can be used to identify any individual.
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 services we provide. We or our agents and sub-contractors may contact you by post, e-mail or telephone to ask you for your feedback and comments on our services and the Website.
We may also wish to provide you with information about special features of our Website or any other service or products we think may be of interest to you. If you would rather not receive this information, please send a blank e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org
We may also want to provide you with related information from third parties we think may be of interest to you. If you would rather not receive this information, please send an e-mail to email@example.com
We may also provide your information to carefully selected third parties (including third parties who offer to provide goods and services to users of the Website) whose products or services we believe may be of interest to you. If you do not wish us to disclose your information in this way, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Website uses "cookies" (small pieces of data stored on your computer's hard drive by your browser) which enables us to personalise your use of the Website (for example by automatically filling in your password when you log on to the Website). Most browsers allow users to turn off the “cookie” function. This will not prevent your use of the Website.

The internet is not a secure medium. However we have put in place various security procedures to protect personal data that we process. The Website is protected by Thawte.
