Privacy Policy

As with all shopping websites, we collect personal information from you when you shop online at The Shirt Store. We use this information to make your shopping experience as easy and enjoyable as possible. We need it to process your order, inform you of any delays or problems and occasionally to send you special offers and promotions.

The information we collect is:

  • Your name- So we know what to call you.
  • Email address- So we can email you order confirmations, delivery delays, offers etc.
  • Delivery address- An obvious one.
  • Telephone number- We'll only call if we have a delivery problem or to talk to you about your order.
  • Credit card details- We only ask for these when you place an order.
  • Mobile number- So we can text or call you with details about your orders or where we have a question.

We use the latest secure server technology to ensure this information is protected to the highest standards. We use encryption to safeguard your credit card information and 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. This encryption makes it virtually impossible for unauthorised parties to read any information that you send us.

COOKIES

Cookies are small text files that websites send to your computer. A cookie can be thought of as an Internet user's identification card. They let the website know when the user has returned. This lets the site bring up information relevant to that user, for example your name, past orders etc. Cookies make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier. Without cookies, it would be very difficult for a website to allow a visitor to fill up a shopping basket or to remember the user's preferences or registration details for a future visit. The Shirt Store website uses cookies to allow customers to move from one part of the web site to another and to add items to the shopping basket without having to login repeatedly.

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. It is possible to opt out of cookies via your browser?s cookie settings, but if you do this you will not be able to shop from The Shirt Store website as the functions of the website are dependent on cookies. Please note that cookies are computer specific, so if you log on to any site from a different computer, the cookie settings on that computer will apply.
