At Tom N Tech we don't like complicated policies so we keep things simple. When it comes to privacy we all want to know what is happening with our data and what is it being used for. The answer from us is simple.
If you share your details with us, we will use them solely for the purpose described at the time of submission. For example, if you sign up for our newsletter, you will receive updates and offers from us; if you enter into a sale or purchase with us, your details will be used for invoicing. If you would like to know what details we have on you, let us know, we will happily tell you what we store. If you would like us to remove your details from our database, just ask. Unless you have an account or any outstanding payments due, we will remove your details as soon as practicably possible.
