We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this notice sets out how we will treat your personal information.

What information do we collect?

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:

Information about website visits

  • 4. We may collect information about your computer and your visits to this website such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views. We may use this information in the administration of this website, to improve the website's usability, and for marketing purposes.
  • 5. We use cookies on this website. A cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
  • 6. We may send a cookie which may be stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. We may use the information we obtain from the cookie in the administration of this website, to improve the website's usability and for marketing purposes. We may also use that information to recognise your computer when you visit our website, and to personalise our website for you.
  • 7. Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking "Tools", "Internet Options", "Privacy", and selecting "Block all cookies" using the sliding selector.) This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.

In addition to the uses identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may use your personal information to:

  • 9. send information (other than marketing communications) to you which we think may be of interest to you by post or by email or similar technology;
  • 10. send to you marketing communications relating to our business, or the businesses of carefully-selected third parties which we think may be of interest to you by post or, where you have specifically agreed to this, by email or similar technology (you can inform us at any time if you no longer require marketing communications to be sent by using our online form).
  • 11. provide other companies with statistical information about our users - but this information will not be used to identify any individual user;

If you do wish to receive any communications from us using the contact details you have provided please do let us know using our online form otherwise we will no longer send you such communications.

Except as provided in this privacy notice, we will not provide your information to third parties.

Security of your personal data

  • 15. We will take precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. Data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet but have taken steps to reduce the risk of a data breach.
