What information do we collect?
This is the personal data we collect:
Transactions: full name, postal address, telephone number, email address, company name (if you choose to provide that to us), payment information, credit card information and order information.
Newsletter: contact information, e-mail address, specific updates such as kids shoes and gender (if you choose to provide that to us), and what products and offers you have clicked on.
Email contact: Our website provides a form for users to submit queries along with their email address.
What do we use your information for?
Your personal data may be used in one of the following ways:
To improve and customise the layout and/or content of our pages.
To carry out demographics research in relation to visitors and tracking of sales data.
To personalize your experience: your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs.

We may use personal information provided by you in order to conduct appropriate anti-fraud checks. Personal information that you provide may be disclosed to a credit reference or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information. This is done only to confirm your identity - a credit check is not performed and your credit rating is unaffected.

Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential.
After a transaction, your private information (credit cards details etc) will not be
stored on our servers.
