We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties
All data provided by you is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password or user name which enables you to access certain parts of the IE Website, you are responsible for keeping this password or user name confidential. You are not permitted to share a password or user name with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Website; any transmission is at your own risk. We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. Once we have received your information, we will use suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures and security features to safeguard the information we collect online and try to prevent unauthorised access.
Links to other websites
Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. Any link (be it a hypertext link or other referral device) used on the IE Website is provided solely for convenience. A link does not represent any endorsement or recommendation by us and does not mean that we have any association with the linked site. Once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
