If you are an existing customer, we will only contact you by electronic means (e-mail or SMS) with information about goods and services similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale to you.

If you are a new customer, and where we permit selected third parties to use your data, we (or they) will contact you by electronic means only if you have consented to this.

If you do not want us to use your data in this way, or to pass your details on to third parties for marketing purposes, please un-tick the relevant box situated on the form on which we collect your data.

When making payments through our Service, it is your responsibility to read the terms and conditions of the payment provider (e.g. PayPal, Zong) which you chose to process your payment.
