Personal information you provide directly:
Information we collect may include:
Contact information (such as name, billing or shipping address, email address, mobile or other phone number, and mobile service provider)
Username and password, nickname/screen name
Information regarding payment, however this does not include your payment card details, which you provide directly to our payment processors. We do not collect or store payment card details.

This is usually collected:
When you create an account, eg place an order, register for a subscription, interact with us via social media, post, telephone or email. Calls to us may be recorded for security and training purposes.
You are under no obligation to provide any such information. Providing your personal data to us (in particular, your personal details, your email, your billing and shipping address and telephone number) is necessary for processing your order for the purchase of products on the Website, supplying other services provided on the Website upon your request, or when your personal data is needed to fulfil obligations required by law or regulations. The refusal to provide us with any personal data necessary for performing the above purposes may consequently prevent us from processing your order for the purchase of products sold on the Website or fulfilling obligations required by law and other regulations. Therefore, failure to provide personal data may constitute, in some cases, a legitimate and justified reason for not processing your order for the purchase of products sold on the Website or not providing the Website’s services
