We refer to this automatically collected information as "device information".
We collect device information using the following technologies:
- "Cookies" are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often contain an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies and how to disable cookies, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
- "Log files" track actions on the website and collect data such as your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring and exit pages, and date and time stamps.

When you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we also collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information (including credit card numbers and debit card numbers), email address and telephone number.

In addition, in order to prevent fraudulent activity or in accordance with applicable anti-money laundering laws, the Website may verify the payment instruments used by customers to make purchases on the Website (e.g. credit or debit card, etc.). As full reliance is placed on external payment processors for payment verification, the Controllers do not process or store any customer financial data.

- check our orders for potential risks or fraud; and if it matches the preferences you have given us,
- to send you information or advertising relating to our products or services (newsletters).
We use the device information we collect to help us look for potential risks and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimise our website (for example, by providing analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the website and to evaluate the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
