6) What about my Privacy?
We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

We collect information about you for 2 reasons: firstly, to process your order and second, to provide you with the best possible service. In processing your order we will send information about you to the Network to which you are connecting. This is absolutely necessary. The type of information we will collect about you includes your name, address, phone number, email address and credit/debit card details, but we will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent.

You can check the information that we hold about you by emailing us. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly.

We do not send random marketing emails to personal email addresses (spam). We will not e-mail you in the future unless you have given us your consent.

The personal information which we hold will be held securely in accordance with our internal security policy and the law. If we intend to transfer your information outside the EEA (European Economic Area) we will always obtain your consent first.

7) So what about 'cookies'?
We use ‘cookie’ technology to enable the shopping system to record the contents of your basket, to ensure that the correct products are ordered when you progress through the checkout and to facilitate navigation throughout the store.

The use of a ‘cookie’ involves storing a small file on your computer, which can be used to identify your browser to our server. You can usually modify your browser to prevent this happening although if you do ‘disable cookies’ then you will be unable to make a purchase from our online shop.

8) How can I be removed from your mailing list?
If you wish to unsubscribe from our mailing list, simply send an email to sales@buymobilephones.net with 'unsubscribe' as the subject line.

10) Can I change my tariff after I have bought a phone?
As you can see from our price list pay monthly phones are sold at prices specific to the tariffs chosen. The discount given on any particular tariff is subject to remaining on that tariff for the initial contract period.
