It is our priority that the privacy of all visitors to Mycotown is kept private. We have therefore chosen to opt out of using Google Analytics and only use essential cookies to ensure the website is functional and no more.
No information is stored when visiting the site. If you purchase something from the webshop the information you enter is solely used for the purposes of fulfilling your order. We will not :
1) Sell your data on to a third party.

Your information will be stored in case of a future issue with your order so that we have a record. If you would like to have your information deleted please get in touch using the “Contact Us” form and we will delete your information for you.
We make this website as secure as possible by using the HTTPS protocol which requires an SSL certificate. We also use a security plugin to avoid any data breaches. In the event of a data breach we are able to see that a breach has taken place and will inform any previous customers of this breach ASAP (within 72 hours).
