How we store and secure information we collect

Security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information. Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

Use of cookies

We may use cookies on our website for the purpose of monitoring your activity in order to improve the website and the services available to you. If you don’t want us to use cookies when you use our website, you will need to change your Internet browser settings so that your browser does not accept them.

Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to websites run by other organisations. This Policy applies only to our website. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other sites even if you access them using links from our website.

In addition, if you linked to our website from a third party site, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third party site.

Details of transfers to third countries and safeguards

We may transfer your information to processors outside the European Economic Area (EEA). By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EEA. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you’re agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. If we transfer your information outside of the EEA in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy.

When you give us information about another person, you confirm that they have appointed you to act for them and agreed to transfer their information abroad.

If you use our services while you are outside the EEA, your information may be transferred outside the EEA in order to provide you with those services.
