We abide by a strict Code of Practice that demands we handle your personal details responsibly. This Code also requires that we act fairly and honestly in all of our customer transactions. We do this gladly because we know that if you have a good experience with us, you will want to visit our website again and hopefully even tell your friends about us. Generally, we use the information we collect about you for one purpose: to inform you of our special offers and news updates.

We also monitor our customers' usage of our website to make improvements and provide other items you might want to know about.
WE WILL RESPECT YOUR PREFERENCES
