In order to fulfill your order we print a hard copy, which contains some of your personal information. We have access to this information via our web host’s secure ordering facility.

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers placed by a website onto a user’s computer when he or she accesses the website. Our use of cookies is determined primarily by our website and web shop hosts, 1&1. In developing the Raven Scale Models website and web shop, we may find it necessary to introduce the use of cookies independent of those, if any, that are used by 1&1.

You can, at any time, determine what cookies, if any, www.ravenscalemodels.com and www.shop.ravenscalemodels.com are using and thus you can choose to amend your acceptance settings if needed. Please refer to your browser’s Help guidance to do so.
At present, we are advised by the Technical Support team at 1&1, who host our website and web shop, that they have adapted their online shop facilities such that they do not use cookies.
