  • The Internet domain (for example, "xcompany.co.uk" if you use a private Internet access account, or "youruni.ac.uk" if you connect from a university's domain) and IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access our web site;
  • The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;

Links to Other Sites

ShopUK.org has links to other web sites. We ensure that none of these are of an 'adult' nature or have gambling. Once you link to another site, you are subject to the privacy policy of the new site.

Children

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) protects the online privacy and personal information of children younger than 13. In compliance with this act, ShopUK.org requires permission from a parent or guardian before responding to mailed or emailed requests from children younger than 13. The parent or guardian must provide his or her name and phone number as part of the child's message to us. We then confirm permission over the phone before responding to the child's question or comment.

We do not send or make use of cookies other than to enhance your user experience by ensuring you are not, for instance, presented with an advertisement repeatedly, or to track sales.
