Privacy Policy

This privacy policy sets out how Skatewarehouse Ltd uses and protects any information that you give Skatewarehouse Ltd when you use this website. Skatewarehouse Ltd is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement. Skatewarehouse Ltd may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.

Skatewarehouse Limited is totally committed to protecting the privacy of our site visitors and customers. The Skatewarehouse team members are regular users of internet and fully appreciate/respect the importance of privacy online. We do not disclose information about our customers to third parties except when it is part of providing a service to the customer - e.g. arranging delivery of your order, carrying out credit/other security checks and for the purposes of customer research, marketing and profiling or where we have your express permission to do so.

 

IS IT SAFE TO ORDER ON OUR WEBSITE?

We use one of the most secure online systems available, we are constantly monitoring, researching and improving our software to make sure we offer the highest possible security at all times.

 

We utilise industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of potentially sensitive information such as your name, address and other critically sensitive information like your credit card details. Information passed between your computer and our website cannot be read in the event someone else intercepts it. This technology includes the following features:

  • Authentication - this assures your browser that your data is being sent to the correct computer server and that the server is secure
  • Encryption - this encodes the data so that it cannot be read by anyone other than the secure server
  • Data Integrity - this checks the data being transferred to ensure it has not been altered

 

EXPLICIT CONSENT

We will not sell your name, address, e-mail address, credit card information or personal information to any third party (excluding partners from whom you may have linked to our site) without your permission.

 

PAYMENT DETAILS

We do not hold or store your payment details for any reason. We use a secure third party non-hosted payment gateway (PayPal/Worldpay) that handles the transaction on our behalf. This ensures a very high level of security. We maintain a high level of PCI compliance as required by all payment providers.
