What are Cookies?

Often referred to as browser cookies or tracking cookies, cookies are small, often encrypted text files, located in your web browser's directory. They cannot be used to identify you personally and can't harm your computer or mobile device. Their use is standard practice for almost all websites and, in the case of an e-commerce site such as little-linguist.co.uk, they are essential to allow the site to function correctly when shopping online.

Our Use of Cookies

We use cookies on our website (little-linguist.co.uk) to make your shopping experience with us easy, useful and reliable. Example roles of cookies on this website include:

  • keeping track of what items you have added to your basket
  • remembering who you are when you return at a later time

At little-linguist.co.uk, we use two different types of cookies:

First Party Cookies  - These are cookies that are our own, and are controlled by us. They are used to allow our website to function as an e-commerce (online shopping) site and provide information about the usage of our site.

Website Security

Our website is secured with a Thawte SSL123 Certificate. Thawte's SSL certificates are 256-bit encryption enabled and boast the highest level of browser compatibility in the industry. This certificate ensures that any information provided is kept private between your Web browser and our Web server.

Credit Card SecuritySage Pay Logo

Our website is integrated with Sage Pay, who will securely handle your credit or debit card transaction. Sage Pay uses high levels of encryption and have been audited and approved by all of the major UK acquiring banks.

Sage Pay security measures include the following:

  • All transaction information passed between us and Sage Pay’s systems is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted. You can be completely assured that nothing we pass to Sage Pay’s servers can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information.
  • All sensitive data is secured by Sage Pay using the same internationally recognised 256-bit encryption standards used by, among others, the US Government.
  • The data held by Sage Pay is extremely secure and they are regularly audited by the banks and banking authorities to ensure it remains so.
  • Sage Pay has multiple private links into the banking network that are completely separate from the Internet and which do not cross any publicly accessible networks. Any cardholder information sent to the banks and any authorisation message coming back is secure and cannot be tampered with.

Sage Pay is designed so that we, the vendors, do not have to hold sensitive information on our site. Therefore, in the unlikely event that someone should gain access to our database, they will be unable to recover credit card details or similar sensitive information.

We know of no documented cases of credit card fraud using our shopping system over the Internet and we have been using these systems since 2004.

 

Data Protection

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998).

Under no circumstances will we disclose any information about you to a third party without first gaining your full consent.

We will not rent, sell or volunteer your personal information, including email address, to any third party for marketing purposes, and you will always have the chance to decline future promotional emails from us.

When using our site, we will collect certain information about you for 2 reasons: firstly, to process your order and second, to provide you with the best possible service.

The type of information we will collect about you includes:

  • your name
  • address
  • phone number
  • email address

When purchasing online, information about your credit / debit card is encrypted and so we do not have access to this information.

Customers choosing to pay over the telephone should note that we do not store information about your credit / debit card and your transaction will be processed promptly and the information destroyed securely.

We will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent.

The information we hold will be accurate and up to date. You can check the information that we hold about you by contacting us here. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly.

The personal information which we hold will be held securely in accordance with our internal security policy and the law.
