BE ASSURED, WE TAKE THE SAFEGUARDING AND PROTECTING OF YOUR INFORMATION SERIOUSLY.
WE WILL NEVER SELL OR GIVE YOUR DATA TO A 3rd PARTY
We aim to be as clear as possible about how we use any personal information that you provide to us. If your questions are not fully answered by the information below, please contact us using the details on the “Contact Us” page, and we will be happy to help.
We may update this policy from time to time by posting a new version on our website. You should check this policy occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes.
Information That We Collect
In running and maintaining our website we may collect and process the following data about you:
- Information about your use of our site including details of your visits such as pages viewed and the resources that you access. Such information includes traffic data, location data and other communication data.
- Information provided voluntarily by you. For example, when you register for information or make an enquiry.
- Any other information that you provide when you communicate with us by any means.
This information is anonymous and does not identify you personally; it is statistical data which does not identify any personal details whatsoever. So, for example, on a specific day we can identify how many visitors our site has welcomed though we will know nothing about these visitors in a personal context either in terms of their email, IP addresses or any other personal information.
You can adjust the settings on your computer to decline any cookies if you wish. This can be done within the “settings” section of your computer either to reject all cookies, to only allow “trusted” sites to set them, or to accept only those cookies from those websites which you are currently on. For more information please read the advice at http://www.aboutcookies.org

Unfortunately, the sending of information via the internet is not totally secure and on occasion such information can be intercepted. We cannot guarantee the security of data that you choose to send us electronically, sending such information is entirely at your own risk.
