Storage of Information

When you sign up for the Distraction Records mailing list, we store your e-mail address.

When you place an order with us, we store your name, address, e-mail address and items ordered in our e-mail account. If you want us to remove any trace of your information, just let us know and we will do so.  We will also add you to the Distraction Records mailing list a few weeks after you place your order, but we will only do this the once.  And you can unsubscribe to the newsletter should you wish to do so.

All payment is processed via PayPal, so we will never store your payment information.  Ever.


The first time you visit distractionrecords.com, our server sends your computer a 'cookie', which contains your unique User ID.

The cookie is a small text file on your hard drive which can only be read by our website and will not expose you to any security risks.

Next time you visit our website, your computer sends back its distractionrecords.com cookie - this tells our server who you are.

This means that you can carry on where you left off last time - your items in your basket are all remembered. 

The cookie ONLY stores your User ID, we DO NOT use it to store any other information about you.
