Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

I am the sole owner of the information collected on the Sites. I only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give via email or other direct contacts from you. I will not sell, rent or otherwise share this information with any other individual or business entity, except as reasonably necessary to provide products, materials, or services to you.

I will use your information to respond to you, and will not share your information with any third party outside of my organisation, other than as necessary to fulfil your request, e.g. to ship an order to you.

On rare occasions, and only if it is relevant, I may contact you via email in the future to tell you about a special or service, or changes to this privacy policy.   

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt-out of any future contacts from me or request that I discontinue the sending of email and other communications at any time by contacting me at


I take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the Sites, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever I collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to by secure servers. I have included common indications of such secured features when appropriate such as a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser.

While I use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, I also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing ) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers/drives in which I store personally identifiable information are kept encrypted and in a secure environment.


In order to use these Sites, a user may complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the products/services on our site in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender or age) about yourself, but it is not required.  


I request information from you on our order form. To buy from me, you must provide contact information (such as your name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If I have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.

Third Parties

Please be aware that some third party services like booking calendars may use cookies or other methods of tracking and be targeting use on my sites.  However, we have no access to or control over these cookies and this Privacy Policy does not extend to such third parties.  Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. I encourage users to be aware when they leave my site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects information.

Surveys & Contests

From time-to-time, my site requests information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore whether or not to disclose information sought by such surveys or contests. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as postcode, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.


Privacy Policy may change from time to time and all updates will be posted on this page.
