Information about how we use your Postcode
For your convenience this website has been programmed with the choice of buildings available in each postcode district throughout the United Kingdom. If we know the first half of your UK postcode - e.g. NW10 or CV13 - all of the buildings available in your local area will be displayed at the correct price. We do not need to know exactly where you live, just your local area.
The correct buildings and prices are only displayed after we know your local area. After entering the first half of your postcode browsing is quicker and easier because you only see information which is relevant to your location. Ordering is also quicker and easier because the correct prices are calculated for you automatically. Above all you have more choice including many buildings and special offers which are only available regionally. If you tell us your local area we'll make sure you don't miss out!
For non-UK customers we are gradually upgrading this site to cater for you.

How we use Computer 'Cookies' to store your postcode
- Either the first part of your postcode (UK customers only) or your post/zip code location (all other countries) so that we can customise the information specific to your location.
- To link you to your personal shopping basket while you are buying.
Additionally, when entering your postcode, you have the choice as to whether or not the single cookie used in 1 and 2 above is 'remembered' after you close down your web browser (for your safety and security the one used for item 2 is never remembered).
