Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We collect certain information that identifies you and your browser while you use this site. Here’s what we collect and why:
As you browse the site, we pay attention to the pages you visit and the things you interact with so we can better understand which products you are most interested in – this helps us develop new products for you!
We do this by creating and collecting an anonymous identifier string, information about your browser (such as the User Agent), along with your anonymised IP address (which implies a general geographic location).
When you make a purchase, we collect personal information about you. The types of information we collect may include:
- Contact Details
We collect this information to be able to invoice and deliver the product to you – we may also use your information for advertising purposes. You can contact us to be removed from our marketing lists, and opt out of online advertising using the opt-out feature below.
Content from other sites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you had visited the other website.
