How we use this information

Any personal details you provide us with will only be used to contact you or to satisfy the purpose for which it was collected. We use statistical information to improve the content of our website and analyse what pages people visit.

Who has access to your information?

We use this information internally and share it with other people or organisations who need to know it as part of working with us in our normal business activities (e.g. suppliers). We take steps to ensure that these third parties put in place adequate security to protect your personal information and to ensure that your personal information is not processed other than in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. We do not share your personal information with others except under these conditions, and we do not disclose or sell your personal information to others for use in mailing lists or databases.

Future Variations

If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our website to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our website periodically.

Payment Security

Our payment services are provided by BOI – Bank Of Ireland. When you enter your payment details on our website you are actually providing them direct to the Bank Of Ireland, and Belfast & Down Oils never has access to your card number. This ensures the highest level of payment security for you.
All online Belfast & Down Oils transactions involving card payments are protected for your security using 128-bit SSL encryption. This means that the information you enter into your browser is encrypted before being sent over the internet, and it will be useless to anyone intercepting it.
You can check that you are shopping in a secure environment by looking for the padlock icon in your internet browser. In addition, website pages protected using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption always begin with “https” rather than “http”. Check this in the address bar near the top of your screen.
Proof of PCI compliance is required of all merchants who accept credit cards. BOI/Belfast & Down Oils are tested frequently to ensure that high security standards are maintained.
