Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. We may also use your personal information to detect and reduce fraud and credit risk.

Review of this Policy
We keep this Policy under regular review. This Policy was last updated on 13th july 2018
Obviously, if you place an order with us, we’re going to need to know something about you: your name, address, credit card number and expiry date. We couldn’t do without it. We’ll also ask you for a telephone number so you can sort out when you want us to deliver. You will also be asked if you want to receive our ‘plant aftercare by email’ service along with advance notice of special offers etc. If you don’t want to get any care info, then all you have to do is tick the ‘unsubscribe’ box.
We will never give out your email address to any third party as we think unsolicited emails are the worst kind of intrusion. Conversely, we do have a relationship with some of the best companies in other sectors (like cooking, clothing etc) and we will give you the option to receive catalogues from them. If you are unsure about anything or you would like to know more, please write to email@example.com.
