Why we collect information
We may collect information to deliver products or services to you, to complete other
transactions with you or on your behalf and/or to better understand your requirements
This information enables us to personalise and improve our service and in particular
to provide offers that are of greater interest or benefit to you.
How we collect this information
When you place an order and/or register your details with us, we store that information
for future reference. This saves you time when you place another service request
or shop with us again as you don't have to re-enter your details.
Sometimes we may add to your personal information, information gathered from external
sources. This is mainly done to verify the accuracy of the information we have and,
again, to personalise and improve our service.
What we collect
The personal information we collect is in most cases supplied by you when you register
your details, place a service request for your warranty/non warranty item, place
an order or provide feedback to us. Generally, the information we collect includes
your name, business name, address, delivery address, phone numbers, email address,
IP address etc. If you place a service request we also request and gather information
that relates to your service request.
Who we may share your information with?
We will often need to pass personal details such as your name, business name, address
and contact number to companies who perform parts of our service delivery. This
includes organisations such as the manufacturer(s) of the item/s that you claim,
major delivery companies, mail houses and third party fulfilment contractors.
In special circumstances, for example if we sell our business or a substantial part
of our business, your information may be transferred as part of that sale. We will
not use your information for purposes unrelated to the services we provide, unless
we first obtain your consent.
From time to time, we may provide aggregated information where it is not possible
to identify an individual and to other business partners for various purposes.
If you would like to access your personal information, please e-mail your request
