We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we will store order information for XXX years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.

SNM does not and will not rent or sell your personal information.
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
SNM stores all personal information supplied by the customer on a secure reservations database with controlled access.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Alteration or deletion of personal information
A customer may, at any stage request SNM alter, update or delete personal information at any stage by corresponding with SNM using the above listed contact details.
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Personal Information via the Internet
No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, unless it is processed through a Secure Credit Card System such as that provided by Stripe. While SNM strives to protect your personal information it cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted by the customer via email or customer response form.
Use of your information
SNM does not sell or rent your personal identification to third parties. We release personal information only when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our terms and conditions; or protect the rights, property, or safety of SNM, our users, or others.
Members of our team have access to the information you provide us. For example, both Administrators and Shop Managers can access:
Order information like what was purchased, when it was purchased and where it should be sent, and
Customer information like your name, email address, and billing and shipping information.
Our team members have access to this information to help fulfill orders, process refunds and support you.
It is our policy to immediately remove any customer from any mailing list upon the customer’s request.
We do use email as a means of receiving feedback from our customers, and we encourage you to email us with your questions or comments.
Control of Your Password
We work diligently to protect the security of your personal information.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer by ensuring you log off when you have finished visiting any SNM website using a shared computer.
SNM takes all reasonable steps to keep any collected personal information secure and to protect that information from misuse or loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Please note, however, that total security of data transmission over the internet cannot be guaranteed. SNM therefore cannot guarantee and does not warrant the security of information transmitted over the internet.
