Privacy & cookies etc

Boring but important ...

Thanks for visiting Cunningham White's! Cunningham White's (“Cunningham White's”, “we”, “us” or “our”) respects your privacy. Just like we would want our privacy to be respected. We don't share your information with anyone, unless as part of fulfilling our service to you, eg. sharing your delivery details with our courier. So this privacy policy is boring but important.
