We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

Where We Store Your Personal Data

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

All data we obtain from you is stored on our secure servers. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. We will only keep the data we obtain for the purposes described below for monitoring and generating information current usage, so will not hold on to it for more than 12 months.

  • To provide you with information that you request from us or which we feel may be of interest you, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes.
  • To notify you about changes to our service.

We may also use your data, to provide you with information about services, which may be of interest to you and we may contact you about these by email, post or telephone.

If you are an existing customer, we will only contact you by electronic means (e-mail or SMS) with information about services similar to those which were the subject of a previous provision of services to you.
