The information we collect and how we use it
You can visit our sites without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. However, if you wish to make use of the wide range of services we offer to our members, we will need you to register. Each Club is free to join. We will need to know your first and last names, e-mail address, postal address, date of birth (to verify being 18 years or over) and in certain circumstances (e.g. if you are purchasing any goods or entering any competitions) we will also need to know further details (e.g. telephone number, and your debit/credit card details).
We gather this information to allow us to provide a better service to our membership. Where information is required for transactions (e.g. where you buy goods) the information is used by us and our suppliers to allow the transaction to proceed smoothly and to aid the ease with which transactions are conducted and to facilitate delivery of the goods.
We may use aggregate information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring website usage in order to help us develop our site and our service and may provide such aggregate information to third parties. These statistics will not include information that can be used to identify any individual.
We may use your information when you enter a competition, or other promotional activity, so we can administer the competition and notify the winners. We may also use your information to pass on to selected third parties that we feel you might be interested in, so that they can present their information to you. If you do not wish to receive this information, please e-mail us at [email protected].
We may wish to provide you with newsletters or information about special features of our website or any special service or products which we think may be of interest to you. If you would rather not receive this information, please e-mail us at [email protected]

Web-Clubs may from time to time permit third party suppliers to provide all or part of a service to you. Web-Clubs shall only be entitled to supply such of your personal information as is necessary to enable them to contact you concerning the relevant service to you. If you do not wish to receive any third party contact that we might feel could be of relevance to you, again please e-mail us at [email protected].
