We will only process personal information in ways that are compatible with the purpose we collected it for, or for the purposes you later authorize.

Legal basis for processing your personal information (EEA visitors/customers only) – If you are a visitor/customer located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. We will normally collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate business interests. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you.
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to enter into a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information). Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests, we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.
Cookies and similar tracking technology
Like all e-commerce web sites, we use ‘cookies’. Cookies are bits of information that are stored on your computer by your web browser.

Whether you want your web browser to accept cookies or not is up to you. The ‘Help’ portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. You can also disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-ons settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.
How we protect your information – The security of your personal information is very important to us.
We do not store PIN data or 3-digit security codes.
However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
