Details are published on a register on the ICO website at http://ico.org.uk, where you can also find lots of useful information about Data Protection, what it means to you as an individual and how it applies to companies like us.
What personal information do we collect and what do we use it for?
In order to:

carry out our obligations in relation to any agreement you have with us;
verify your identity;
anticipate and resolve problems with any goods or services supplied to you;

We also ask you for other optional information such as what sort of device you use to access the Site, how you heard about us and what sort of subjects interest you. If you choose to give us this information, we will use it to help us to provide you with the best possible service that is personalised to your needs and preferences.

Storing your credit and debit card details
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
