SECURITY & PRIVACY line_break

We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected - we will never share your personal information with anyone for any reason unless we have your explicit permission or the disclosure is otherwise in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

This policy explains how we use the information we collect about you and the procedures that we have in place to safeguard your privacy.

information we store

When you sign up for the weekly guide, we store your e-mail address.

When you place an order with us, we store your name, address, credit card details and items ordered.

You can choose to save your address and / or card details with a password protected account after you place your order.

After we have charged your card and you have no more outstanding orders, we remove the 3-digit security code from our database, so even if you have 'save my card details', you will still need to re-enter this when you place your next order.

We store your details for three months after you place an order. If you do not place another order within 3 months, we remove your card details from our database, even if you have chosen to save your card details.

You can change / remove your account details at any time using the 'Account' link in the top right corner once logged in.

We store your information on a secure server which is password protected and hidden behind a firewall from the outside world.

We are regularly scanned for vulnerabilities by Security Metrics to ensure we meet PCI-DSS security standards. Click the badge below to check the report.

The first time you visit piccadillyrecords.com, our server sends your computer a 'cookie', which contains your unique User ID.

The cookie is a small text file on your hard drive which can only be read by our website and will not expose you to any security risks.

Next time you visit our website, your computer sends back its piccadillyrecords.com cookie - this tells our server who you are.

This means that you can carry on where you left off last time - your items in your basket and wish list are all remembered.

The cookie ONLY stores your User ID, we DO NOT use it to store any other information about you.
