What information we collect and why?

If you have placed an order with us then we need to know your name and address, telephone number and email address so that we can make sure you receive the correct order and we can contact you if there are any questions regarding the order. We will also ask for details of how you wish to pay for your order. We do not have access to your payment details as the information you enter is processed directly by our payment gateway providers either stripes or paypal.

We will also use your email address to keep you updated with educational information, offers and discounts that may be available to you. However we will only send you relevant information.  If you do not wish to receive any updates or offers then please email at any time.


How we learn about you? 

We want to make sure that our marketing is right up your street so we obtain data from other sources, such as societies you are a member of other companies you have purchased similar products from, to ensure that our products and services are of interest to you.  If this applies to you and you do not wish to receive any further information from us please email


Basis for processing your information and how we use it

When you purchase anything from us or subscribe to one of our services you are entering a contract with us. We also use your data for fraud prevention purposes to verify that you are not purchasing anything fraudulently.

We like to keep you updated with information about our events and with offers and promotions, so from time to time we’ll send you details by email.  Under data protection law it is considered a legitimate business interest for us to use our customers details for direct marketing and customer satisfaction surveys. However we understand that not everyone wants to keep up to date or receive offers, so if you do not wish to receive any further email messages from us (and we quite understand) please email us at
