Your Personal Information
We collect your personal information when you complete an enquiry form or send an email. This information will include your name and email address plus other relevant information you choose to provide.
The more information you can give us about yourself, the better we can provide you with the services that you need and want.
However, we only collect this information from you if you choose to provide it to us and we do not hold your information for longer than is necessary.
We use this information:
- To help us handle enquiries about our services
- To help us make the website more relevant to visitors' needs
- To conduct research (anonymous)
- To email visitors from time to time about events that we think might be of interest
By submitting your personal information you are consenting to the use of your personal information in the manner stated. You can, however, at any time remove your consent to this use. You can also contact us at any time to review or change the information you have supplied to us.
If you have allowed us to use your personal information for the purposes above, we may have to disclose this information to any company or organisation to which we pass the responsibility to handle email or other direct marketing communications. Should this happen, we ensure that any third party companies who handle your information are registered with and comply with the Data Protection Act.
Due to the global structure of the internet, there is a possibility that information provided by you may be transmitted or processed internationally. As specified by the DPA, we undertake to stop the transfer of personal data to any country or territory outside the European Economic Area (EEA) unless the third country in question ensures an adequate level of protection for the rights and freedoms of data subjects.
