- wherever possible give you the option of interacting anonymously with us, if practicable and lawful to do so.
What personal information we collect will depend on the service or interaction, but may include name, address, phone and other contact details, merchandise information, and method of payment. Your financial information is held and processed through a secure gateway. We do not cache or save your financial data in our database.

Where we store your information, COVE will take all reasonable steps to store your information securely and to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your information. In the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the website.
Any information that we no longer require is destroyed. When we have collected information about you it cannot be seen or modified by anyone else.
