FAQ
Looking after you...
This area of the website details the various legislative and regulatory compliance issues we must adhere to when trading via this website:
Our aim is to treat our website visitors and all our customers as we expect to be treated ourselves. We have added this element of the website to reassure visitors and customers that we understand the application of the Data Protection Act, associated laws and self-regulatory schemes that are designed to protect the consumer.

In order to demonstrate that our privacy policy accords with the above privacy instrument, we are voluntarily committed to a Self Assessment procedure. However, we are a very small operation and cannot always stay ahead of the latest developments so we welcome any suggestions you may have that would help us improve our service to you.

Legislative and regulatory information
Without our customers we would not have a business therefore we seek to comply with legislation designed to protect the rights of the consumer and we have no wish to compromise those rights in any way.
Mickfield Hostas is a UK registered business and, as such, is subject to UK laws governing business operations.
