The Praesto Group includes Praesto Training and Development Limited, The Stress Management Society and their subsidiaries and related companies.


Praesto Training and Development Limited trading as Praesto e-Shop aims to reflect the most accurate information on their prices at all times. We supply items at the publisher's recommended price except where a specific discount is offered. We will make all reasonable efforts to present accurate information but we cannot guarantee the price or our ability to supply any particular item.

Occasionally publishers may increase their prices unexpectedly, and this is often something we become aware of only upon ordering stock from them. In the event that this occurs, or in the event of a pricing error howsoever caused, we will check with you to see if you still wish to receive the item at the new price. All prices are displayed in pounds sterling (£).


Praesto recognises the concern of our customers regarding privacy of information. All information you give to Praesto is stored securely, and is not accessible to other users. Rest assured that any information you give to Praseto will not be distributed to any other company outside of the Praesto Group or its affiliated partners, unless you give us your express consent.

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998). We collect information about you for two reasons: firstly, to process your order and secondly, to provide you with the best possible service. We will not e-mail you or pass your information to another trader unless you have given us your consent. In order to process your payment we may, however, provide financial information to our account processors (including Banks and such organisations). In addition, you may notify us if you do not wish to receive any further marketing information from us.

The type of information we will collect about you includes:

• your name

• address

• phone number

• email address

• credit/debit card details

We will not collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent.

We will endeavour to ensure the information we hold will be accurate and up to date. You can check the information that we hold about you by emailing us. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly.

The personal information which we hold will be held securely in accordance with our internal security policy and the law. If we intend to transfer your information outside the EEA (European Economic Area) we will always obtain your consent first, except for payment processing though the secure channels of our banking partners. Note that if your item is not available from our warehouse or suppliers in the UK and we have to obtain it from abroad, we will need to transfer the correct information to our suppliers outside the UK to fulfil the order.
