Able is dedicated to keeping your details private. Any information we collect in relation to you is kept strictly secured. We do not pass on, sell or swap any of your personal details with anyone. We use this information to identify your orders, provide you with our monthly newsletter (if applicable) and to personalise your shopping experience with us.

Cookies also allow us to give you a more personalised shopping experience by displaying products that interest you throughout our product pages, thus providing you with a more friendly, interesting and enjoyable shopping experience.

Whenever you use our website or any other website, the computer on which the web pages are stored (the Web server) needs to know the network address of your computer so that it can send the requested web pages to your Internet browser. The unique network address of your computer is called its "IP address," and is sent automatically each time you access any Internet site. From a computer's IP address, it is possible to determine the general geographic location of that computer but otherwise, it is anonymous.

We do not keep a record of the IP addresses from which users access our site except where you have specifically provided us with information about yourself, in which case we also record your IP address for security purposes. An example of this would be when proceeding to a checkout to finalise an order you may wish to make. After completing the form provided, your IP address will be stored along with a transaction number that allows us to track your order.=

This is done to allow Able to prevent fraudulent chargebacks. We apologise for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding in this matter. When scanning your ID we collect the front and back of the license. The purpose of collecting this ID scan is the prevent fraudulent transactions when you have prepaid the order online. This information is collected with a standard consumer scanner which only prints out a physical copy of the scan. This information is held as a physical scan and is stored in a secure building with 24-hour surveillance and alarms. This information is held for the same length as the legal requirement for tax invoices to be held. After this period this information will be shredded.
