Frequently asked questions


Is my information safe?

At, we take security very seriously. We use a secure connection between your browser and our server to ensure that any contact details you give to us are transmitted securely and we encrypt the data in our database once we receive it. This means that if anyone was to steal our database, they wouldn’t be able to retrieve your details without thousands of computers and many years to crack the encryption!


What happens to my personal information when I register on the site?

Any information provided by you as part of our registration process is for use only. We do not pass on any information to third parties in any way, shape or form.

On occasions we may email you with an update on our free resources, new products or special member offers. If you would like to unsubscribe from these mailings, please log into your account and uncheck the relevant box(es).


How do you store my credit card details?

We don’t store any credit card information ourselves, instead we use PayPal, one of the world’s leading online transaction security specialists to process your payment. In fact, PayPal are now officially recognised as a bank in the EU and are subject to the same rules as your own bank!

If you have any queries about site security please call us on 0161 247 7932 or email us at and one of our Internet Team will try and answer your queries.


Do I have to create a PayPal account to order online?

In a word, no! You can just enter your details into the secure web page and the system will not remember them again. If you think you might use PayPal again for your purchases either at or the thousands of other internet sites that accept paypal, then it might be more convenient for you to create an account and have your details saved for your next purchase. We want you to choose the option you are most comfortable with.


How much is delivery?
