What information do we collect?
If you browse any of our websites (whether you register with us or not) we may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. The information we report is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
Once you register or place an order (even if you do not register with us) on any of the applicable Websites and Apps, we will know who you are and the activities you perform on the Websites and Apps. Information we collect about your computer may then be linked on our systems to you.

When you place an order, or register with us, we will need to know your name, email address, delivery and billing address, telephone number and any special notes. This information will enable us to process your order and contact you directly if there are any problems with your order.
When paying for an order via PayPal, you will be redirected to www.paypal.co.uk where you will be asked to log-in to your account and checkout. We do not have access to this information nor do we collect it and store it.
Some information is required information which will enable American Candy Stores to deliver to your products you order via the Websites and Apps. Required information is compulsory and you'll see this indicated by a star (*), but other information is optional and if you don't want to give it to us, don't worry. But, if you do give us this information, it will help us to improve our products and service so we'd be very grateful if you did.
We may retain copies of any correspondence you send us and we will certainly keep your registration and order details and order history with us. We will also be provided with a copy of your address details, which you provide to American Candy Stores Ltd.
