Privacy and Cookie policies

Privacy statement

We are committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of everyone who uses our website and the confidentiality of any information that you choose to share or provide us with. This statement sets out how we use personal information that we may receive from you.

We adhere to all relevant legislation, including the Data Protection Act 1998 and the GDPR, and ensure that all personal data or information provided by you through using our website and our services, and which is identifiable, is used in accordance with this privacy statement.

We may update this privacy policy and where we do, we will post a new version on our website. You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes. We may also notify you of changes to our privacy policy by email.

Use and collection of personal information

What information do we collect?

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

Information about website visits

We may collect information about you 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.

Who will see the data?

People in our organisation or working for our organisation who need your data in order to carry out the service we are providing you or for marketing purposes, which you have consented to.

After collecting data from you that you have consented for us to use, we may transfer it other parts of our organisation or to trusted and reputable third-party service providers, such as a mailing list provider. We will only do this where we have a legitimate reason or consent to do so such as where you have said we can keep you up to date with our activities. All of the service providers we use are required to maintain the confidentiality and security of your personal data and to use it only in compliance with data privacy laws and for specified and instructed purposes. Each service provider is also responsible for their use of your personal data, according to rules they set in their own privacy policies.

Using your personal data

Personal data submitted on this website will be used for the purposes specified in this privacy policy or in relevant parts of the website. The data you share and provide will be used to carry out the services that you request from us. We will only use it to contact you where we have a legitimate reason to do so, or where you have provided consent for this: it will only be used for the purpose for which it is supplied.

In addition to the uses identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may use your personal information to: improve your browsing experience by personalising the website; send to you marketing communications relating to our organisation which we think may be of interest to you 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 emailing us).

At any time you can change your mind or withdraw your consent about the way we use your personal data. If you wish to do this, please contact [email protected].

There may be circumstances where we are required to disclose personal data without seeking the consent of the data subject. Where these circumstances occur, we will employ legal assistance where necessary, verify the request is legitimate and only then disclose the data. This is to the extent that we are required to do so by law.

How long do we hold information for?

If we have not had meaningful contact with you for two years, we will then delete any personal data we hold.

At any time you may ask us to delete your personal data, and we will do so subject to any legal restrictions or our ability to do so. Any personal data that is deleted is logged anonymously, with details on what was removed and when this took place.

How can you control your personal information?

In the event that you do not wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, ensure that you don’t tick or tick the appropriate boxes next to any forms which state there is an opportunity to sign up to marketing. You may unsubscribe from our mailing list by replying to an email with the word “unsubscribe” in the subject line, or by emailing us at any time at [email protected].

At any time you can change your mind about the personal information we hold. You can contact us and ask us to delete your information from our mailing list, or to completely erase any personal data we hold on you on our system. Contact [email protected] to ask that this be done.

Third party websites

The website may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of third party websites.

Security

We will take reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.

Cookie Policy

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. To find out more about cookies, including seeing what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

Cookies have various different functions, but essentially they are used to allow websites to respond to you as an individual and how you use it. Cookies in no way give us access to your computer or any information other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies when you enter our website and see the cookie notice. Most browsers also allow you to refuse to accept cookies (for example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookie 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.

Do not track (DNT) is a feature offered by some browsers, with some newer browsers offering it as default. If you enable it, it sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing isn’t tracked, for example by third party ad or social networks, or analytic companies. You can also delete any cookies that are already stored on your computer’s hard drive.

A table of the cookies we use on our website is set out below.

If you do not wish to accept cookies from our website, please leave this site immediately and then delete and block all cookies from this site. If you need any help regarding cookies on our website, get in touch by emailing us on [email protected].
