Maintaining the security of you information is of paramount importance to us, so we take necessary steps to prevent your information from being accidentally lost or accessed by unauthorised persons and means. Access is limited to genuine business needs, unless it is requested by law enforcement agencies for an active investigation. The individuals processing your information (for postage/payment etc.) are only allowed to do so in an authorised manner, and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

Sustainability:

In order to be as sustainable as possible we Strive to find the most environmentally friendly options possible for all of our processes. As such we try to package our pickups with materials that are made mostly, if not entirely from recycled materials. This also means that you can then dispose of the packaging easily in your recycling waste. This is an ongoing process, so as we research more sustainable ways to operate and more sustainable options we will implement them on a rolling basis.

All my solder is lead free silver solder, I have found that this behaves and adheres similarly to leaded solder, but with the added bonus of no lead fumes (yes I use an extractor!), and reducing the amount of lead based waste I produce while doing repairs etc.

For further information about any of the terms and conditions, Privacy, Cookie, or sustainability policies please don't hesitate to contact me via contact us information.
