As Peoples Liberation Front of Judea once pondered...what have the Romans ever done for us? Or indeed Brussels... or is it Strasbourg this week?Screw 'em - we'll be off soon enough!
We have been compliant with GDPR since we began. The EU finally caught up with us!

Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer, mobile phone or device. Cookies may be placed on your device when you visit a website or open a marketing email.
We may also set third parties cookies to allow you to easily link to third parties you may be subscribed to, such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. We do not control these cookies and how your information may be used, so please visit the third parties' websites for more information on these cookies.
In the future, our partners may also set cookies when they direct you to our site to buy a product. These cookies allow us to pay our partners a referral fee based on the nature of any purchase you make.
It is difficult to articulate our loathing for spam, identity theft and other internet-age felonies. We will NEVER share your personal details with any third party unless compelled by legal process.
We are committed to protecting your privacy. Model Rocket Shop and Hesperis Technology Ltd. will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully in accordance with the UK's 1998 Data Protection Act as amended and the bloody GDPR.
We collect personal information about you for only two reasons: firstly, to process your order and secondly, to provide you with first class customer service.
We will NOT pass your e-mail address or other details to other parties, trusted or not, unless you explicitly agree. And we ain't asking!
The type of information we will collect about you includes:
Sex - so we know if you are a Dear Sir or Dear Madam. Just call us old fashioned.
Age - so we can be sure that motor sales are legal
If you have any questions/comments about privacy, please contact us using the web form provided on our contacts page.
We do not spam you with marketing messages and our once-lovely newsletter is still awaiting time/effort/distribution so the GDPR is particularly not applicable to those meager efforts.
You are free to edit your details on your account any time you wish... and please do if you move or PayPal plugs in some oldie. If you want to be entirely deleted, let us know.
We do NOT use encrypted email so if you want that, you'll have to buy your rockets somewhere else.
We do NOT ever have your credit card details on our server or even on scraps of paper laying around the office. That's all up to WorldPay and PayPal to keep those safe. We do not take telephone orders for this reason.
Our server host has good security and they stay on top of upgrades and patches - be we can't be responsible for their oversights. If you feel vulnerable, we wish you luck shopping elsewhere!
