Data Protection

Today is ‪#‎DataProtectionDay‬ so we thought we’d take the opportunity to remind you of the steps we take to protect yours.

If you use our WebShop to make your purchase you are protected by global giant Worldpay. We are sent the details of what you’ve ordered and where to send it and that’s all. Everything else, including those all important payment details, is kept on their encrypted server.

Some people prefer to call us and talk through their options before purchasing; one of the advantages of dealing with a real rather than an online only company. In this case, you are protected by the Data Protection Act. As such we do not store your data physically or electronically once the transaction has been completed. We know it’s a little inconvenient for those who order regularly but we would rather be over zealous in protecting your data than leaving our customers at the slightest risk.

Finally, for those contacting us by e-mail, we would like to assure you that we never share your details with other companies.

Holocaust Memorial Day

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day and this year’s theme is Don’t Stand By.

27 - holocaust memorial day We cannot imagine the mixed emotions the Jewish musicians spared from the chamber to play for their captors must have felt and, as they were mostly adults at the time, we can no longer ask them.

Each year there are fewer survivors and we become ever more reliant on written or second-hand accounts or, worse, Hollywood versions of events. Edmund Burke said, all evil needs to flourish is for good men to do nothing to which we would add that we should never forget the lesson of the past.

(with apologies for the poor quality of the picture, but we’re sure you’ll understand why)

Happy Australia Day

Happy Australia Day to all our friends, followers, and clients down under. We hope you’ve had a bonzer day, opened a tinny or three, and put some shrimp on the old barbie.
Enough of the clichés.  We hope you’ve celebrated your national day in true Aussie fashion, despite it being pretty much over by the time you read this, and hopefully enjoyed plenty of music too!
