Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

Customer service. We use your personal data for customer service purposes, including responding to your enquiries.

Customer experience. We use your personal data to improve and personalise your experience on our website, in order to best meet your needs.

1.3 Use of Cookies


We use cookies. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers, if you allow, to your computer's hard drive through your web browser, that help the website remember information about you and your preferences (e.g. items in your shopping cart) or to compile aggregate data about site traffic to improve its functionality.

We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business and online experience.

1.4 Personal data protection


We offer the use of a secure server. All sensitive data such as credit card number, is transmitted via “Secure Socket Layer” (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers database. These data are only accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.

Because we value your privacy we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the Mauritian Online Data Protection Act. We therefore will not sell, trade, or distribute your personal information to outside without your consent.

As part of the Mauritian Online Data Protection Act, all users of our web site may make any changes to their information at any time by logging into their account and going to the “edit account” page.

We use external suppliers to help us operate our business (e.g. transaction processing, web site operating and development, promotional services and data analysis).

Service providers, and their selected staff, are only allowed to access and use your personal data on our behalf for the specific tasks that they’ve been requested to carry out, based on our instructions, and are required to keep your personal data confidential and secure. Where required by applicable law, we will provide a list of the providers processing your personal data.

However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights.
