•    If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.

•    We may also ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them.

•    Information we collect about you.  With regard to each of your visits to the Website we may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration.  This is statistical information about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

•    Information we receive from other sources.  We may receive information about you if you use any of the other websites we operate or the other services we provide. We also work closely with third parties (including, for example, business partners, providers of payment services, analytics providers and search information providers) and may receive information about you from them.

We will hold the above information for as long as is necessary in order to provide you with our services, deal with any specific issues that you may raise or otherwise as is required by law or any relevant regulatory body.


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 contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors.  These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

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.  Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.  If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.  However, you can still place orders over the telephone by contacting customer service.

How do we use your information?

We use information held about you (and information about others that you have provided us with) in the following ways:
