The Internet is an amazing tool, it has changed the way we live - With only a few mouse-clicks, you can follow the news, look up facts, buy goods and services, and communicate with others from around the world. It's important to Vape Emporium to help our customers retain their privacy when they take advantage of all the Internet has to offer.
We believe your details are exactly that, and no one else's. Your privacy is important to you and to us. So we'll protect the information you share with us. To protect your privacy, Vape Emporium follows different principles in accordance with worldwide practices for customer privacy and data protection.
We won’t sell or give away your name, mail address, phone number, email address or any other information - to anyone. We’ll use state-of-the-art security measures to protect your information from unauthorised users. We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties.
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you create a Registration ID on the site, enter a contest or order email newsletters. We use your Personal Information for four primary purposes:
- To make the site easier for you to use, by not having to enter information more than once.
- To help you quickly find products, services or information.
- To help us create content most relevant to you.
- To alert you to new products, special offers, updated information and other new services from Vape Emporium.
If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use most of www.vapeemporium.com. But you will not be able to access areas that require registration.
If you decide to register, you will be able to select the kinds of information you want to receive from us by subscribing to various services, like our electronic newsletters. If you do not want us to communicate with you about other offers regarding Vape Emporium's products, events, or services by email, postal mail, or telephone, you may select the option stating that you do not wish to receive marketing messages from us.
We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. You may review and update this information at any time within the My Account section. There, you can:
- View and edit personal information you have already given us.
- Tell us whether you want us to send you marketing information.
- Sign up or cancel our electronic newsletters about our services and products.

Vape Emporium has taken strong measures to protect the security of your personal information and to ensure that your choices for its intended use are honoured. We take strong precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
We guarantee your e-commerce transactions to be 100% safe and secure. When you place orders or access your personal account information, you're utilising secure server software SSL, which encrypts your personal information before it's sent over the Internet. SSL is one of the safest encryption technologies available and is also used by the banks when you access your bank account online.
Your personal information is never shared outside the company without your permission. Inside the company, data is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access. Your information may be stored and processed in the United Kingdom.

NOTICE TO PARENTS
Parents or guardians: we want to help you guard your children's safety.
The Vape Emporium site does not publish content that is targeted to children or sell products to children. However, if you are concerned about your children accessing the products or services from the Vape Emporium site please ensure you do not leave your account logged in, which would allow them access to the Vape Emporium site.
ELECTRONIC PRODUCT REGISTRATION
When you buy and use a new product, we may ask you to leave feedback on your purchase electronically. When you do, we merge your registration information with any information you've already left with us (we call that information your personal profile). If you haven't previously registered with us, we create a personal profile for you from your product registration information. If you ever want to review or update that information, you can visit the My Account section, click on the appropriate area, and edit any of the Personal Information in your profile. If you haven't already created a Registration ID, we will ask you to do so. This ensures that only you can access your information.
CUSTOMER PROFILES / COOKIES NOTICE
As mentioned above, every registered customer has a unique personal profile. Each profile is assigned a unique personal identification number, which helps us ensure that only you can access your profile.
When you register, we create your profile, assign a personal identification number, then send this personal identification number back to your hard drive in the form of a cookie, which is a very small bit of code. This code is uniquely yours. It is your passport to seamless travel across www.vapeemporium.com, allowing you to order free newsletters, enter competitions and write reviews, without having to fill out registration forms with information you've already provided. Even if you switch computers, you won't have to re-register – just use your Registration ID to identify yourself.
WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION YOU SHARE
When you join us, you provide us with your contact information, including your: name and email address. We use this information to send you updates about your order, questionnaires to measure your satisfaction with our service and announcements about new and exciting services/products that we offer. When you order from us, we ask for your credit card number/PayPal account details and billing address. We use this information only to bill you for the product(s) you order at that time. For your convenience, we do save billing information in case you want to order from us again, but we don't use this information again without your permission.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
