Privacy and Security

Flynn's Sewing Machine Centre will use its best endeavours to safeguard the privacy and security of its website visitors. This policy explains the website data processing practices of Flynn's Sewing Machine Centre.

What information do we collect?

In some areas, we may ask you to register your name, e-mail address and postal address. We will also collect information from you if you place an order, complete any other forms on our site or if you contact us with comments or specific requests. Your credit card details are provided directly to our payment provider, who transmit and store them securely. We never have access to your credit card details.

What do we use personal information for?

We may pass your details on to third party service providers who are contracted to Flynn's Sewing Machine Centre in the course of dealing with your request. These third parties are obliged to keep your details securely, will use them only to fulfil the request and will dispose of the details when the request is complete.

E-mail Messages

You may receive occasional e-mail messages from Flynn's Sewing Machine Centre on matters that we consider may be of interest to you, only if you have provided your email address to us for this purpose.

Information to improve our site

We collect web statistics automatically about your visit to our site. This information is used to help us follow browsing preferences on our site so that we can regularly improve our web site. These statistics do not contain personal data and cannot be traced back to an individual.

Payment security

Our online payments are processed by Protx, a secure transaction processor. The Protx payment system uses a combination of established and innovative techniques to ensure the security and integrity of all sensitive data. All internet facing web servers are certified by Verisign to ensure that no third parties can impersonate Protx to obtain secure information.

The transfer of the less sensitive transaction details from this site to Protx is encrypted and digitally-signed. This ensures that the information passed is secure and tamper-proof. Any communication between you the customer and Protx is encrypted to the maximum strength supported by your browser. You are also protected from fraudulent use of your card in a "card not present" environment by your card issuer.

All data stored on Protx systems is held on encrypted and highly secured databases. Protx are regularly audited by Visa and MasterCard to ensure that their systems conform to the latest security standards. Flynns do not have access to your credit card number.
