Privacy Policy and Terms

Website Privacy Policy

We are extremely concerned to protect your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all users of our site are quite rightly concerned to know that their data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not fall into the hands of a third party. Our policy is both specific and strict. If you think our policy falls short of your expectations or that we are failing to abide by our policy, do please tell us.

We are constantly vigilant for credit card or other fraud. We report all charge backs to a credit reference agency. If you have any reason to seek the return of money paid, please contact us rather than your credit card issuer.

Information may be unlawfully available to hackers and snoopers. We take no responsibility for this. The risk is no different from a similar risk in a bricks and mortar establishment. Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site. If this policy should change in the future (most unlikely), then we shall provide notification in advance, and the opportunity for all users to indicate whether or not they would prefer that we do not provide the information to third parties as proposed.

If you are a minor (Under the age of 18), you can use this service only in conjunction with your parents or guardians permission.

Cookies

"Cookies" are small pieces of information sent by a web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser. Epony uses cookies for a number of purposes, for instance to enable us to simplify the logging on process for registered users, to provide the mechanisms for online shopping and to enable traffic monitoring.

Non-registered visitors of the site are sent anonymous cookies to keep track of their browsing patterns and build up a demographic profile.

Whilst you do not need to allow your browser to accept cookies in order to browse much of the epony web site, you must have cookies enabled if you wish the site to function as intended.

Most browsers allow you to turn off the cookie function. If you want to know how to do this please look at the help menu on your browser. As described above this will restrict curtain functions of the site.

Website widgets

There’s so many free widgets you can add to websites these days. Collectively they make our website more interesting to you as a site visitor (and hopefully beloved customer). Most of these come with cookies – that’s the “price of free”. So hand’s up, there are more third parties tracking data on this site than we would like and each of them are setting cookies as you surf this site. They are:

YouTube
ShareThis
Facebook
Twitter

We are working hard to work out what they all do but we are pretty confident that they all collect data anonymously unless you are already logged into their service. They probably just collect details of pages visited. In many cases the cookies are used to generate identical information to Google Analytics (see above) and indeed use Google Analytics, so opting-out of Google Analytics will also opt you out of these cookies too.

Don’t want any cookies ever?

While we’d like to offer a cookie-free version of our site we are a small company and simply don’t have the resources to provide and maintain one. Unfortunately if you are really anti-cookie then there is no option except to not use our site. You can remove any cookies we have already put on your machine within your browser settings – pressing Ctrl+Shift+Delete may work in many cases.
