Our privacy policy brings all the boys to the yard, and they're like…
"Wow! This is a fascinating read!”

Most of us are understandably concerned about computers watching us while we sleep, and a cybernetic lack of privacy that will lead us to an inevitable dystopian future, just like a terrible Young Adult Fiction novel. If you lay awake a night worrying about these things too, here's our GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), the DPA (Data Protection Act), and the PECR (Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations) polices, and all that jazz. If anything doesn't make sense then drop us a message and we'll help you out.

For instance, we never spam our customers with unwanted messages, and don’t share your data with anyone else for marketing purposes. All of our computer equipment and hard drives are encrypted, and we have ensured that the external services we use to administer our business and host our website, image galleries, etc, are also GDPR compliant.

In short, we take take your privacy seriously, and make sure we look after your personal data in the way we would want our own data handled. Our full GDPR policy is set out below

All hail the cybernetic overlords, may our data be a worthy sacrifice.
