Cristal are committed to complying with the Data Protection Act 1998 and have published this guide to help you understand how and why Cristal collect information from you, to whom such information is disclosed and what your rights are. If we make changes to this Policy we will notify you by updating this statement on our website. You can access our Website home page and browse our site without disclosing your personal data. However, when you register with Cristal you will be asked to provide certain information about yourself.

What information do we collect and how do we obtain it?

We receive information in one of two ways either directly from you when you register with us or from a third party such as credit reference agencies (for example to assess your credit rating).

If you register with us you will be asked to provide certain information such as your name, address, details of your credit card (only if you are paying by credit card), telephone number and email address so that we can process and fulfill your order, notify you of your order status and inform you of special offers and promotions.

How do we use your information?

We use the information that we collect about you to:

·          Process your orders

·          Manage your account - see also "Use of credit reference agency information".

·          Administer this website.

·          Monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop and improve the design and layout of the site.

·          Notify you about enhancement to our services, such as changes to the website, new services and special offers that may be of interest. You do have the option to ‘opt-out’ if you do not want to be notified of these services.


As our customer, we are concerned about the security of your credit card information.  Please be assured that Cristal does not store your credit or debit card information on our system. Your payment details are taken via the SagePay or PayPal portal which is encrypted and these details are not passed to us. These Web Store’s have taken many steps to ensure your security and safety by using the highest levels of encryption security.  If you are not comfortable with releasing your credit card information via our web site, you may call us on (01564 772 707)

Please note that no orders will be considered complete until payment has been submitted.

The security measures described above ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to protect your personal information. However, the nature of the Internet means that an absolute guarantee of security cannot be offered, and you should be aware that there may be a small security risk in exceptional circumstances when disclosing information online

Use of Credit Reference Agency Information and sharing of credit information

In the interests of responsible lending and for security purposes SagePay/PayPal carry out searches with credit reference agencies when you make a purchase with Cristal. These searches may be carried out before deciding whether to accept a transaction.

The agencies record these searches. They may share information about you and the conduct of your account with credit reference agencies, other lenders and relevant third parties.

Information about you and other members of your household and those with whom you are financially linked may be used to verify your identity and for the credit assessment of you and them.

Cristal will not share your information with other companies for marketing purposes. Please be aware that if we are requested, by the police or any other regulatory or Government authority investigating suspected illegal activities, to provide your information and/or use your information, we are entitled to do so.
