In addition, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how our website is being used so that we can improve it and our services. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about how websites are used by using cookies which are stored on users’ computers.
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. This might, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.

We may use your personal information to:

(h) send to you our newsletter and other marketing communications (relating to our business which we think may be of interest to you) by post or by email or similar technology, but only where you have explicitly and knowingly agreed to this;
(i) provide third parties with statistical information about our users – but this information will not identify any individual user; and
(j) deal with enquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to the website.
(a) to the extent that we are required to do so by the laws of England and Wales;

International Data Transfers
Information that you provide to us, or that we collect may be transferred, processed and stored in the UK and or in locations outside the UK in order to deliver our service to you. Website analytic data collected from your use of our website may also be transferred, processed and stored, for example, on Google’s servers outside the UK and EU.
We will take reasonable technical and procedural precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or inadvertent alteration of your personal information. We will store all the personal information you provide in secure servers or systems (wherever they are based).
Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of any data sent over the internet. Our website does however use an SSL certificate to help ensure that any information sent to us through it, is more secure than it otherwise would be. If you look in the address bar of your browser, when visiting our site, you will see the letters https. The S stands for secure.
Giving and Withdrawing your Consent to be Contacted
It’s a legal requirement for us to ask for, and have, your consent before we contact you.
We keep a record of your consent in our systems until shortly after you tell us you want to withdraw it, or until we no longer need to retain your consent e.g. for legal or business reasons.
Porting and Providing you with Confirmation of what Personal Data we Hold
You may instruct us to port (transfer) any of the information we hold about you at any time. You may also instruct us to provide you with electronic confirmation of what personal information we hold about you at any time.
Depending on the nature of your request, this doesn’t necessarily mean we would need to provide you with the information itself – although we can do that if you request it – but a list of the types of information we hold e.g. name, phone number, email address etc.
If you would like us to port (transfer) the data, please provide us with the details of to where you would like it to be ported to. If we don’t think this will be a secure destination to port it to (or the method of porting is not secure), we will tell you.
Please also let us know what information you require to be ported or confirmed e.g. all the information we hold or just a specific detail. Please also tell us what format you would like the information provided in and when you would like to receive it e.g. a paper copy or in an email.
To protect your privacy and confidentiality, we may, in certain cases, only be able to provide you with the detail in paper format as opposed to electronic formats.
We will endeavor to provide the information you require in your preferred format by the date you request, but this may not be possible depending on the precise details of your request and with respect to our operational schedule and any third parties that may need to be involved.
Purging (deleting) Your Information
You may also instruct us to purge (delete) any and all information we hold about you at any time.
We will endeavor to do this with respect to your wishes and compliance with the applicable laws of England and Wales and or EU laws and regulations i.e. GDPR.
We will endeavour to delete all the information we hold about you in the time frame you request, but depending on the nature of your request, and any third parties involved, this may not be possible.
This is because of our legal obligation to retain certain types of customer information for certain time periods e.g. for tax and or accounting purposes, we may need to keep your contact details on file for longer periods if they appear on an invoice or receipt for example.
In any and all cases, we only ever keep information on file for as long as it is needed with respect to the services you have enquired about and or that we have agreed to provide you, or to meet a legal requirement.
Updating Your Data
You can and should instruct us to correct or update any personal information we hold about you e.g. if you change your name or address for instance.
You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact us as soon as possible and we will endeavour to answer your question as quickly and clearly as we can.
The website of the Information Commissioner’s Office (UK) also has to more detail about data protection and your rights.
