Everything you need to know.
What information do we hold about you?
When you buy a product from us, we store your email address, phone number, address and credit card details. If you choose to deliver items to a third-party (such as a friend) we will also store their name and address. Information is only used to help us deliver the parcels and contact you. You may also receive newsletters and special offers from AP Diving. You can opt-out of this at any time by using 'My Account'. We will never share your data with other companies, individuals or organisations without your express permission, unless required to do so by law.
We also maintain an order history of your purchases. This allows you and us to track your deliveries and review your past purchases. We may offer you a reward for purchases or make an offer we think you might like based on your order history. We also collect information of a general nature about how many 'hits' our website gets and we monitor site traffic patterns. This tells us which areas of the site are being visited more than others and helps us build a better site and deliver a better service to you. We don't track individual users pathways through the site.
What do we do with your information?
In addition to processing your order, we also maintain an order history of your purchases. This allows you and us to track your deliveries and review your past purchases.

You can opt out of receiving newsletters and special offers from AP Diving Ltd at the point of payment for your order.
At any time, you can change newsletter settings from your 'My Account' page or click the unsubscribe link. We NEVER exchange, sell or otherwise give away your email address to other companies.

Our Cookies Policy
Cookies consist of parcels of information, often including unique identifiers, that are sent by web servers to web browsers, and which may then be sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. They are used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website, and to identify users returning to a website.
Cookies come in two guises: ‘persistent’ or ‘session’ cookies. A persistent cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Cookies on this website
We use both session and persistent cookies on this website.
Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal information that we store about you may be linked, by us, to the information stored in and obtained from cookies. Our cookies keep track of the items in your shopping basket and act as place markers when you move around the site. We also use software to track general browsing behaviour on our website. This means that we can build up a picture of the most popular areas and paths through the site and any problem areas, though we don't use it on a personal level to track individuals and their behaviour.
We may use the information we obtain from your use of our cookies for the following purposes:
(a) to recognise your computer when you visit our website;
(b) to track you as you navigate our website, and to enable your use of various features on our website;
(c) to improve the website’s usability;

Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites. If you block cookies, you will not be able to use many of the shopping features on apdiving.com
