6. Phishing

Phishing is a method used by fraudsters to deceive someone into giving sensitive information. Most of the time phishing will take the form of emails, which purport to be from well-known companies and ask recipients to send their private information. This information is then used for identity theft and fraud.

 

Yard-O-Led will only ask you to send personal details by email if it is responding to a query you have sent it online and these details are needed to answer your query properly. In this case, there will be a unique reference number in Yard-O-Led’s email to you, which refers to your original query. Yard-O-Led will never ask you to send any personal details by email unless you have contacted Yard-O-Led first. If you have not contacted Yard-O-Led, please ignore any email claiming to be from Yard-O-Led which asks for personal details, and let us know about it. Should you need to do this you can telephone 0121 369 0510 or email sales@Yard-o-led.co.uk

If Yard-O-Led ever requires your personal information other than when you have already contacted Yard-O-Led with a query, for security reasons we will ask you to give us a call.

 

7. Security

For orders through the Shop, we work to protect the security of your payment information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.

The Site uses reasonable security methods to protect the personal data (e.g., contact details) that resides on our servers. However, no security system is impenetrable. Yard-O-Led cannot warrant or guarantee the security of its or its partners' servers, nor can it guarantee that information that Shop Users supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to Yard-O-Led or its partners over the Internet.

When you register to purchase products on the Shop, you will be asked provide your email and password. You must keep your passwords confidential and must not disclose it to or share it with anyone. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your login details for the Shop. If you know or suspect that someone else knows your password, notify us immediately at sales@Yard-o-led.co.uk.

8. Correction/Updating Personal Information

If you have registered to purchase from the Shop and would like to change your details, please email sales@Yard-o-led.co.uk. Keep in mind, however, that there will be residual information that will remain within Yard-O-Led's databases, access logs, and other records, which may or may not contain such personally identifiable information.

You may also opt out of receiving our newsletters and/or promotional information from Yard-O-Led and/or from third parties affiliated with Yard-O-Led at any time.
