We store your data on our secure servers in the UK, where it could be viewed by our staff or suppliers. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this.

Transmitting information over the internet is generally not completely secure, and we can't guarantee the security of your data. We have procedures and security features in place to try and keep your data secure once we receive it.

We won't share your information with any other organisations for marketing, market research or commercial purposes.

We may pass on your personal information if we have a legal obligation to do so.

You have the right to find out what information we hold about you.

Our privacy policy is under constant review. The last review was during November 2016.

This website allows a unique identifier to be shared amongst a group of users. In this case the administrator who has set up this group and provided you with a group ID will be able to view and use your data and that of others who have used the same group ID.

We have no control over those organisations nor accept responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from their actions.
