Cookies

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website.  Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers.  The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information.  Click here to view Google's privacy policy.

Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party 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.  Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.

Using your personal data

Personal data submitted to us via this website will be used for the purposes specified in this privacy statement or in relevant parts of the website.

We may use your personal data to:

  • administer the website;
  • maintain a business relationship with you;
  • enable your use of the services available on the website;
  • send you general (non-marketing) commercial communications;
  • send you email notifications which you have specifically requested;
  • provide third parties with statistical data about our users – but this information will not be used to identify any individual user;
  • deal with enquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to the website

Where you submit personal data for publication on our website, we will publish and otherwise use that data in accordance with the license you grant to us.

We will not without your express consent provide your personal data to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.

Disclosures

We may disclose data about you to any of our employees, officers, agents, suppliers or subcontractors insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes as set out in this privacy statement.

In addition, we may disclose your personal data:

  • to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
  • in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
  • in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing data to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk);
  • to any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal data where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal  data.

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

International data transfers

Data that we collect may be stored and processed in and transferred between any of the countries in which we operate in order to enable us to use the data in accordance with this privacy statement.

Data which you provide may be transferred to countries which do not have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in our home jurisdiction.

In addition, personal data that you submit for publication on the website will be published on the internet and may be available, via the internet, around the world.  We cannot prevent the use or misuse of such data by others.

You expressly agree to such transfers of personal data.

Security of your personal data

We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal data.

Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.

You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will not ask you for your password (except when you log in to the website).

We will delete your personal data upon your request, provided that we are legally allowed to do so.
