Information we collect from you
When you visit our Web site, our Web server automatically records some general information about your visit, but does not recognise or record any individual information about you.

In addition to any information you submit to us, whether online or by post, for system administration and to understand your browsing actions, we may collect:
- Your server address.
- The date and time.
- The pages accessed and documents downloaded.

How we use this information
Any personal details you provide us with will only be used to contact you or to satisfy the purpose for which it was collected. We use statistical information to improve the content of our website and analyse what pages people visit.
Who has access to your information?
If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our website to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our website periodically.
Our payment services are provided by Payment Sense. When you enter your payment details on our website you are actually providing them direct to Payment Sense, and Discount Oil never has access to your card number. This ensures the highest level of payment security for you.
All online Discount Oil transactions involving card payments are protected for your security using 128-bit SSL encryption. This means that the information you enter into your browser is scrambled before being sent over the internet, and it will be useless to anyone intercepting it.
You can check that you are shopping in a secure environment by looking for the padlock icon in your internet browser. In addition, website pages protected using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption always begin with “https” rather than “http”. Check this in the address bar near the top of your screen.
Proof of PCI compliance is required of all merchants who accept credit cards. Payment Sense/Discount Oil is tested frequently to ensure that high security standards are maintained.
