As all firms selling goods and services over the internet, by phone or by mail order we comply comply with the Consumer Protection Act and, by selling over the Internet with the (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (DSRs).
The DSRs implement European Council Directive (97/7/EC)7 and for most goods and services provide additional rights to consumers buying at a distance to encourage confidence in this method of buying. All member states of the European Union (EU) must implement the Directive in their national legislation. The protection the DSRs offer is important because consumers cannot inspect goods or services before they buy when they shop at a distance. The DSRs came into force on 31 October 2000 and were amended by SI 689/2005 effective from 6 April 2005.

All data is used in accordance with the Data Protection guidelines issued by the information commissioner including but not limited to your payment card number, name, home address and delivery address to verify your identity, to validate your payment card, to obtain an initial payment card authorisation and to authorise individual purchase transactions.
