Privacy Policy

Welcome to our privacy policy. This is our plan of action when it comes to protecting your privacy. We respect your privacy and take the protection of personal data very seriously. The purpose of this policy is to describe the way that we collect, store, use, and protect data that can be associated with you or another specific natural or juristic person and can be used to identify you or that person (personal data).

Personal Information

Personal information collected when you complete any application form or registration form is the following:

  • Your name and surname;
  • Your email address;
  • Your telephone number;
  • Your company name, company registration number and VAT number;
  • Your postal address or street address; and
  • Your username and password.

We will use this personal data to fulfil your account, provide additional services and information to you as we reasonably think appropriate, and for any other purposes set our in this policy.

When visiting our website

When visiting our website, and no application form is completed and submitted, no personal information is collected, however, we automatically receive and record Internet usage information on our server logs from your browser, such as your Internet Protocol address (IP address), browsing habits, click patterns, version of software installed, system type, screen resolutions, colour capabilities, plug-ins, language settings, cookie preferences, search engine keywords, JavaScript enablement, the content and pages that you access on the website, and the dates and times that you visit the website, paths taken, and time spent on sites and pages within the website (usage information).

Please note that other websites visited before entering our website might place personal data within your URL during a visit to it, and we have no control over such websites. Accordingly, a subsequent website that collects URL information may log some personal data.

The information that we collect and store about you includes the information that you provide via our website as part of the registration process, any other information that you give us by other means, such as e-mail, and information about your shopping and order history. The only purposes for which we use information about you are to deliver your order, customising your future shopping experience, improving our offering to you and communicating with you.

Information about our customers is an integral part of our business and we respect that. We will never share your details with any third party without your consent. The only exception is our need to release the bare minimum information about you to duly appointed personnel to do deliveries, or that your order may be verified for collection purposes. Should we ever appoint agents (companies or individuals) to perform a function on our behalf e.g. towards fulfilment of your orders, delivery or providing customer service, they will have only such access to your information as they require to perform their functions and will be prohibited from using it for any other purpose.

Your own responsibility in protecting your privacy in the course of doing business with us consists of the safeguarding of your password and protecting against unauthorised access to our site using your username and/or password and/or computer. You must make sure to log off properly and leave no trace of stored login details when you use a computer that is available to other persons.

The only other information about you that we collect, in a manner that does not identify you as an individual, are usage statistics about the website gathered by our hosting and application service providers, which may include IP addresses, browser types and versions, operating systems and platforms, date and time of visit etc.
