PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
As with all shopping websites, when you place an order we will ask you to input personal information about yourself. We need this information to process your order and to allow us to tell you about any delays or problems. When you place an order we will ask you for the following information:
- Name – so we know what to call you
- Email address – so we can email you order confirmations, delivery delays, offers etc
- Billing address – for the purposes of validating your card (for your security and ours)
- Delivery address – so we know where to deliver your products
- Telephone number – so we can contact you if we have a problem with your order
- Credit card details – we only ask for these when you place an order.
Before you reach the checkout you also have the option to sign up to our mailing list to receive minty fresh news and offers. If you choose to do this we will need to ask you for your name & your email.
None of this information will ever be shared with any third party (i.e. any other business or individual) – that's not really what we're in to! The information you give us simply allows us to provide you with a good, reliable service.
You can of course cancel any subscription at any time, whether that is our mailing list or Subscribe and Save service.
We use the latest secure server technology to ensure your information is protected to the highest standards available.
We use encryption to safeguard your credit card information and we will only accept orders from web browsers that permit communication through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This means you cannot inadvertently place an order through an unsecured connection. Most web browsers above version three support this security.
This encryption makes it virtually impossible for unauthorised parties to read any information that you send us.
Cookies are small text files that websites send to your computer so that when you go back to the site it can recognise you. Think of a cookie as an internet user’s identification card. Cookies let the site bring up information relevant to you, for example your name, past orders etc.
Cookies are not computer programs, and can’t read other information saved on your hard drive. They cannot be used to disseminate viruses, or get a user’s email address, etc. They only contain and transfer to the website as much information as the users themselves have disclosed to that website.
We use session cookies to keep track of your current shopping session and to store items you have added to your shopping bag. If you do not accept session cookies you won’t be able to use this website properly.
DATA OVER THE INTERNET

They may also use information about your visits to this and other websites to target advertisements for goods and services.
This anonymous information is collected through the use of a pixel tag, which is industry standard technology used by most major websites.
