Please be advised that when you make a purchase from our website, we collect certain personal information from you (for example: your name, email address, payment address and details).

We take every reasonable care to maintain appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of the information you provide us with. When you place an order or access your account information, we use a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption which encrypts your information to protect it from unauthorised use.
Please note: no payment details are kept on this website. In order to serve you most efficiently, your personal information may be disclosed to other businesses within Graeme Ellisdon Ltd and to reputable third-party banking institutions to handle our credit card transactions. They receive encrypted information needed to verify and authorise your payment card and to process your order. All such organisations are under strict legal obligations to keep your personal information private. Graeme Ellisdon Ltd requires all such third parties to treat your personal information as fully confidential and to fully comply with all applicable UK Data Protection and consumer legislation.

You agree that you do not object to us contacting you for any of the purposes outlined below whether by e-mail, by post or by telephone and you confirm that you do not and will not consider any of these uses as being a breach of any of your rights under the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003.
