We Are Secure

Creating an Account - Data Collection

If you want to create an account on our site you can do this manually by entering your Name Email and password. Alternatively. you can also create an account that is linked to Google+, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, so you do not have to remember any new passwords or account details specifically for our site. This takes you to their sites for account validation and they then send us back that validation with an email address. We do not see any of your passwords as they are entered on the social connector's site only. The email address that is sent back from the social connector is used to set up an account for you on our site.

Payment Methods

The main forms of payment are through PayPal, Wix payments and Apple pay

  • PayPal will require you to login to your PayPal account (on their servers) and choose how you want to pay. You can use funds linked to your account or a credit card here.

  • Wix Payments allows you to enter your credit card details directly and it will be processed by Wix Payments. This works for all UK cards and some international cards. This is done through a transparent redirect process but actually means that we do not store or process any of your card details. Effectively you are entering the details to be viewed by Wix Payments only. They do the validation and will pass back a confirmation of the payment or otherwise. If you find that your card does not work, try PayPal and in most cases, it should resolve the problem.

Once an order is placed on our website an account is automatically created as we have legally engaged in a contract. This also allows for easy access for you to get order updates and also to see your order history. An email with your account access details will be emailed to you and you can manage passwords etc. by using the normal web techniques to reset forgotten usernames and passwords.

If, for any reason, there is a problem with collecting payment from your credit / debit card or other chosen payment method after we have confirmed receipt of your order, we will not be obliged to dispatch your order. Additionally, on some occasions, we may be unable to process an order. This may be due to: the item being out of stock or no longer available, your payment being declined, our identification of a pricing error or product description error or an unspecified technical error. If you are sure you are using a valid form of payment, please try again or use a different payment method.
