Privacy & Security
Central Living only collects personal information from our online visitors on a voluntary basis and only during registration or placing an order. Visitors purchasing goods and services online will need to provide a valid credit or debit card number and expiration date, in addition to their name, mailing address, telephone number and email address.
How this information may be used
We will only collect personally identifiable information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to serve our legitimate business purposes and we will maintain appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of the information you have provided us with.
In order to complete the delivery of your purchase we will pass your name, address and telephone number to the delivery company contracted to carry out the delivery of your purchase. These details allow us to process your order and, subsequently, keep you up to date with the status of your order.
The information you provide allows us to alert you to new products, services, special offers/promotions, news and events. We will not share your information with parties outside our organisation (except to the extent required by law, court order, or as requested by other government or law enforcement authorities).
If at any point you wish to have your name removed from our database, you can do so by sending an email to [email protected] with the subject ‘remove’.
We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure but, in the absence of negligence on our part, we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.
Commitment to Data Security
Appropriate technical and organisational measures have been taken to ensure that your personally identifiable information is kept completely secure. Only authorised employees and contractors (who have also demonstrated a commitment to data security within their own policies) have access to this information. Credit card details, for example, are processed and stored by PayPal Services.
Internet Security Technology
When you place an order with us using our secure online order form and web browser such as Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, the order is encrypted. The use of SSL encryption scrambles data sent from the browser to the CentralLiving.co.uk server in a way that only Central Living can access.
Checking Your Browser Security
You will notice that when you look at the location (URL) field at the top of the browser for our Checkout page it begins with https: instead of the normal http: This means that you are in secure mode. You can also verify the security of a document by checking the security icon at the bottom-right hand corner of your browser (usually a lock and key padlock or a solid gold key depending on your browser and version). This is your assurance that your browser and our server are communicating securely, it is advisable to ensure that your browser software is always up to date to maintain optimum security. All information transmitted on our secure online order form is encrypted while in transit, so that even if the information is intercepted, because it is encrypted, it is useless to anyone.
Security of your personal data is of highest priority to us. This is why we have utilised encryption technology to guarantee unauthorised parties have no access to personal and credit card details as they are passed over the internet. This has been independently verified.
