By using this site, you understand and agree to the terms of this policy. This site is owned by me (Leslie J Fletcher) and may be accessed in the United Kingdom and abroad.
For data protection purposes, I am the controller and, unless otherwise stated, am also the processor of data. Information collected may be retained, and may be stored, processed, accessed, and used in jurisdictions whose privacy laws may be different and less protective than those of your home jurisdiction.
Collection of Your Personal Information
I collect certain kinds of information, such as the website that referred you to me, your IP address, browser type and language, and access times. I also may collect navigational information, including information about the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions taken in connection with my site.
I could combine your visit and navigational information with any personal information that you provide. You may always choose not to provide personal information, but if you so choose, certain products and services may not be available to you. Personal data (e.g., your username and password, your name, your mailing address, email address, and phone number) might be collected.
Additional personal information (e.g., your credit card number and billing address) might be collected to process transactions or to provide you with products and services. Limited demographic information, such as the industry you work in, is sometimes collected and may be linked to your personal information.
Use of Your Personal Information
I collect and use your personal information to operate and improve my sites, to process your transactions, to provide customer service, to perform research and analysis aimed at improving my products, services and technologies, and to display content that is customised to your interests and preferences.
I also use your personal information to communicate with you. I may send transaction-related communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders and purchase confirmations. I might also send you marketing emails to inform you of new products or services or other information that may be of interest. If you do not wish to receive marketing emails, you may adjust your “Personal Information Preferences” as described below or follow the “unsubscribe” instructions included within each email communication.
Personal information collected by me will be stored and processed in the United Kingdom. By using my sites or services, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your home country.
If you would like to exercise any of your data protection rights (including the right to have your personal information deleted), please contact me using the “Contact Information” below.
Sharing of Your Personal Information
I might share your personal information with service providers who perform services on our behalf. For example, I might hire other companies to handle the processing of payments, to provide data storage, to host websites, to fulfil orders and shipments, to assist in direct marketing, to conduct audits, etc. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to provide the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
Information about my customers, including personal information, may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, or sale of my company and/or its assets, as well as in the unlikely event of insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, in which personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company.
I websites use “cookies” to enable you to sign in to our services and to help personalise and improve your online experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard drive or device. Cookies contain information, including personal information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
The information that cookies collect includes the date and time of your visit, your registration information, and your navigational and purchase history. Cookies offer you many conveniences: They allow me to identify registered users when they return to the site so that they can retrieve previous image search results, access Lightboxes and shopping baskets and view their previous invoices.
Cookies save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information. Cookies allow me to deliver personalised content to you, including search results and targeted advertising. Cookies help to protect your security by checking your login details and may help prevent fraud. Cookies remember your preferences when using the site. Cookies also identify particular customers in the event such customers would like assistance from a live, online customer service representative.
Information gathered may include, but is not limited to the following:
activity of the user browser when the user is visiting the site,
the site path of users, general information regarding the visitor’s Internet service provider and host,
and the time users come to the site. Remember my users’ previous search of products and services, and dynamically display more relevant content to them. Record users’ behaviour on my site, such as pages visited, emails clicked, forms completed, and products and services purchased to create customised advertisements and communications that better meet your needs. Evaluate user traffic and behaviour on the site to compile activity reports for our internal use only. Conduct research and diagnostics to improve my products and services. Identify users arriving at the site via a referral from an affiliate website or sponsored link.
In addition to cookies, I could use other technologies, including single-pixel gifs (also known as web beacons) on my websites and in promotional email messages or newsletters. These tiny electronic images assist me in determining how many users have visited certain pages or opened messages or newsletters. I never use these single-pixel gifs to collect personal information. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies.
Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies. Please be aware that the site is optimally designed to operate with cookies enabled in your Internet browser. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features of my sites and services that depend on cookies. This may negatively impact your experience of the site.
Security of Your Personal Information
The security of your personal information is important to me. I follow generally accepted industry standards to help protect your personal information. For instance, when you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on my registration or order forms, I encrypt that information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology.
No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while I strive to protect your personal information, I cannot guarantee its absolute security. If a password is used to protect your account and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential.
Forums & Other Interactive Services
My websites may include discussion forums or other interactive areas or services, including blogs, chat rooms, bulletin boards, message boards, online hosting or storage services, or other areas or services in which you or third parties create, post or store any content, messages, comments, materials or other items on the sites (“Interactive Areas”).
If you use an Interactive Area, you should be aware that these areas are open to the public and any personal information you post or provide at registration may be viewable by others. I am not responsible for personal information you submit in connection with the Interactive Areas, nor am I responsible for how others might use that information, including to send you unsolicited messages. Interactive Area postings may be retained indefinitely.
If you choose to use my email referral services to tell a friend about my products or services, I will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. I will use that information to send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site and review the product or service you have selected.
We may use a third-party provider to administer this function, but any such third-party provider may only use the information submitted to facilitate this one-time email.
Neither I, nor any third-party provider, store this information after the email is sent.
I do not intend to solicit or collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are under 18, you should not use or enter information on this site, including without limitation, any Interactive Areas of the site.
I may link to websites, including those of our third-party content providers, that have different privacy policies and practises from those disclosed here. I assume no responsibility for the policies or practises of such linked sites and encourage you to become acquainted with them prior to use.
You can contact me directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or please visit my contact page for alternative contact methods and information.
