We do not pass on, sell or swap any of your personal details with anyone. We use this information to identify your orders and to personalise your experience with us.

From a computer’s IP address, it is possible to determine the general geographic location of that computer but otherwise it is anonymous. We do not keep a record of the IP addresses from which users access our site, except where you have specifically provided us with information about yourself, in which case we also record your IP address for security purposes. An example of this would be when submitting a support request or inquiry form containing a request you may wish to make. After completing the form provided, your IP address will be identified as part of the transaction.
