Collection and Use of Customer Information

This information allows us to process and fulfil your orders and to notify you of the status of your order. We ask for your telephone number so that we are able to contact you speedily in the unlikely event of there being a problem with your order. Please note that for some international orders, your telephone number may be given to our couriers.

Once you have provided us with the above details, we are able to use them to better understand your individual requirements and therefore provide you with a better service.
