Privacy policy

Revised 19th October 2012.

We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.

(1) What information do we collect?

We collect, store and use the following kinds of information:

(a) information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views, website navigation);

(b) any other information that you choose to send to us via email or other communication.

We do not provide information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing/advertising.

(2) Cookies

A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

We use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on this website. We use the “session” cookies to keep track of you whilst you navigate the website and use the “persistent” cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you visit again.

Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. 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. Blocking all cookies may, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.

“session” cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser.
“persistent” cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.

We may disclose information about you to any of our employees, officers, agents or suppliers insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes as set out in this privacy policy.

In addition, we may disclose your personal information:

(e) to any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.

Except as provided in this privacy policy, we will not provide your information to third parties.

(5) Security of your personal information

We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.

Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.

We may withhold such personal information to the extent permitted by law.

You may instruct us not to process your personal information for marketing purposes by email at any time.
