This is a notice to inform you of our policy about all information that we record about you. It covers information that could identify you, and information that could not.
The protection of your privacy and confidentiality is important. Our policy is both specific and strict. It complies with UK law and meets the additional guidelines set out by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office.
We regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to leave our site immediately.
Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site.
Business and personal information
This includes basic identification and contact information, such as your name and contact details and also includes all information given to us. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of the information and not use it for any other purpose.
This information is used:
- for marketing our services and products
- information which does not identify any individual may be used in a general way by us or third parties, to provide class information, for example relating to demographics or usage of a particular page or service
We keep information for a minimum of six years. That is because we may need it in some way to support a claim or defence in court.
Information you post on our website
Information you send to us by posting on our site is stored on our servers. We do not specifically use that information except to allow it to be read, but we reserve a right to use it in any way we decide.
Personally identifiable information
You may review or update or request removal of personally identifiable information that we hold about you, by contacting us. To better safeguard your information, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections to your information.

Third party content
If you complain about any of the content on our web site, we shall investigate your complaint. If we feel, it may be justified, we shall remove it while we investigate. If we think, your complaint is vexatious or without any basis, we shall not correspond with you about it.
Information we obtain from third parties
Although we do not disclose your personal information to any third party (except as set out in this notice), we do receive data which is indirectly made up from your personal information, from software services such as Google Analytics and others. No such information is identifiable to you.
Content you provide to us with a view to be used by third party
If you provide information to us with a view to it being read, copied, downloaded, or used by other people, we accept no responsibility for what that third party may do with it. It is up to you to satisfy yourself about the privacy level of every person who might see your information.

Using our website to contact us
When you send a message through our site, we collect the data you have given to us in that message in order to obtain confirmation that you are entitled to receive the information and to provide to you the information you need. We record your request and our reply. We do not keep any personally identifiable information associated with your message, such as your name or email address.
When we receive a complaint, we record all the information you have given to us. We use that information to resolve your complaint. If your complaint reasonably requires us to contact some other person, we may decide to give to that other person some of the information contained in your complaint. We do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter for our sole discretion as to whether we do give information, and if we do, what that information is.
We may also compile statistics showing information obtained from this source to assess the level of service we provide, but not in a way that could identify you or any other person.
With your permission we pass your email address and name to selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products you would find useful.
We may use re-marketing from time to time. This involves a supplier placing a tag or marker on your browser in order to be able to serve you an advert for our site when you visit some other website.
