Cookies are small pieces of information stored by your browser on your computers hard drive. Cookies are used to store snippets of information you have provided to the web site. Often these details may include parts of your recent orders and other personal information.

We will not supplement the information that you provide to us with information that we receive from third parties, for example, information collected from other members of your household or other companies.
We do not store or share our customer credit cards information.
We endeavour to take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information. All the data collected by us is stored on a secure server. The secure server software encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us.

Is it safe to give my credit card details over the internet? 
Any information sent to us is encrypted (scrambled) while being sent over the Internet. When it reaches us we then unencrypted the content so that it can only be read by our authorised personnel. This makes it near impossible for anyone to intercept your details. We use the same kind of encryption (SSL) as many leading banks and other financial organisations.

I have heard about SSL technology, what is it exactly? 
SSL or Secure Socket Layer technology is industry standard encryption technology that protects data during transit, in particular any personal information or credit card data, from being intercepted and misused by hackers.

  • To enable you access to your user preferences area.

  • To employees and agents of Linux Satellite to administer any accounts, products and services provided to you by us.
  • Aggregate information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring web site usage in order to help us develop the web 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.
