Disclosure of Information
We are not in the business of selling information and therefore we will not disclose your information to anyone except as provided in this policy. We may for marketing purposes disclose aggregate statistics (information about the user population in general terms) about your information to our advertisers or business partners. It may be necessary for us to disclose information to suppliers, affiliates or agents (for example in order to deliver products to you which you have bought) in order to provide you with our services. Obviously we transmit and therefore disclose credit or debit card numbers to the relevant credit card company for the processing of orders. We do not store credit or debit card numbers. In order to perform credit checks we may disclose your information to credit bureaus. If we sell or transfer our business to a third party purchaser we may transfer your information provided the purchaser undertakes to use your information in accordance with this policy. We will obviously need to disclose information to employees of ours who require such information to do their jobs. There may be situations where the law requires us to disclose your information. In all other situations we will not disclose your information without giving you notice thereof and an opportunity to indicate that your information should not be disclosed.
