  • Visit our website.
  • Order products.

We also monitor who uses our website. For example, we may collect information about you like the type of internet browser you use, the website from which you have come to ours and your IP address (the unique address which identifies your computer on the internet). This lets us improve our website.

Privacy promise

We know how important it is to keep your personal information safe and secure online. Any information that we collect from you is held legally and we will endeavour to take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information.

In order to serve you most efficiently, reputable third-party banking (including PayPal, WorldPay and Amazon Pay) and distribution institutions handle our credit card transactions and order fulfilment. They receive the information needed to verify and authorise your payment card and to process your order. All such organisations are under strict obligation to keep your personal information private.

Security

Account security

You are responsible for your account security, password and any activities on it. We are not responsible for anything that may happen if you do not protect your password or account.

Site security

Our website uses the highest level of security available for online shopping. Any personal information that you send is securely encrypted by a 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). In other words, the SSL mixes-up your data and stops it from being taken by anyone else.

How to check that you are in a secure area

Our Checkout is one example of secure area. There are two ways that you can check that the page has been encrypted and that it is safe for you to continue:
1. A padlock will be shown at the bottom of your screen.
2. Our website address, www.trimmingshop.co.uk, will change slightly: The part of the address starting with “http” will change to “https”. You can find it at the top of your screen.
