Direct from the manufacturer
Many of our products are delivered direct from the manufacturer. This has many advantages for you when you choose your product:
We pass on the savings in distribution and warehousing costs
Products are delivered by the manufacturer’s recommended agents
There is less product movement reducing cost and potential damage
Product availability and range is greater in the manufacturers warehouse
We are ISIS & IDIS compliant and you therefore have the comfort of shopping on a secure
Internet site that is protected by using encryption of all personal and payment information. Further details can be found

When you place orders or access your account information, we offer the use of a secure server. The secure server software
(SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is
sent to us. Furthermore, as required by the UK Data Protection Legislation, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given us,
to prevent unauthorised access. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we

WEEE Regulations for disposal of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
...Information for consumer customers in the UK
Look out for this symbol!
If the symbol shown here is found on any of your goods, it means that the product is classed as Electrical or Electronic Equipment and is covered by the WEEE Regulations.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations (2006 No. 3289) (WEEE) have been put in place to ensure that products are recycled using best available treatment, recovery and recycling techniques to ensure human health and high environmental protection.
When you have finished with a WEEE product, please do not put in your domestic waste bin, as it will not be recycled. Please use one of the following disposal options instead:
To ensure that your WEEE is recycled in accordance with the regulations, you must ensure that the goods are not put in the bin, but are separately disposed of by taking the WEEE to your local designated collection facility. This would normally be your local civic amenity site (recycling centre). To locate your local site, contact your authority (http://www.recycle-more.co.uk/la/la_detailsla.aspx) or go directly to the listing of approved sites where you'll see they are arranged by county (http://www.valpak.co.uk/dts/page1734.aspx).
It is likely that approximately 1000 civic amenity (CA) sites will be upgraded to Designated Collection Facilities (DCFs) where consumers of WEEE from private households can deposit their WEEE.
Hand the old equivalent product back to the retailer:
Alternatively when you purchase a replacement product, hand the old equivalent product back to the retailer. They should accept it as a requirement under the WEEE Regulations (2006 No. 3289) unless they are a member of the Distributor Take Back Scheme (DTS).
The Distributor Take Back Scheme
The DTS is designed to meet the obligations of distributors without the need to offer free in store take back. Instead of offering free in store back, distributors will make a financial contribution to the DTS which will be used to assist in the development of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) collection facilities throughout the UK.
Zoom4U has joined the Distributor Take Back Scheme (DTS) for a further 3 years which means we will have our obligations met for three more years from July 2010, and therefore Zoom4U will not be required to offer any form of free take back of WEEE until at least 2013.
