At Tredz, we maintain a comprehensive data management work programme, which includes processes for ensuring that data protection is a key consideration of all new and existing IT systems that hold customers’ personal data. Where any concerns, risks or issues are identified, we conduct relevant impact assessments in order to determine any actions that are necessary to ensure optimum privacy.

We also maintain an active information security work programme which seeks to protect the availability, confidentiality and integrity of all physical and information assets. Specifically, this helps us to:

  • protect against potential breaches of confidentiality;
  • ensure all IT facilities are protected against damage, loss or misuse;
  • increase awareness and understanding of the requirements of information security, and the responsibility of our colleagues to protect the confidentiality and integrity of the information that they handle; and
  • ensure the optimum security of this website.

We recognise that the security of data and transactions on this website is of primary importance. We therefore ensure that all connections to secure parts of the website (such as when you login) are encrypted and authenticated using strong protocols, key exchanges and ciphers.

7. Location tracking

This website uses geo-location tracking, which shows us where you are in the UK. This enables us to offer next day delivery to specific areas, specify delivery charges for overseas orders, and help people when searching for us online.

Your permission will always be sought before geo-tracking is used, and then, it is only used to personalise your experience.

This website is supported by Google Maps. Users are bound by the Google Maps / Google Earth Additional Terms of Service (https://maps.google.com/help/terms_maps/) which includes the Google Privacy Policy (https://policies.google.com/privacy).
