We recognise that your personal information should be protected and we will only share your information with third parties that have a need to know, such as those processing our data, or as a result of any statutory or legal obligations. We will not share any personal information, or pass or sell it to any other third party.

If you register to receive our e-newsletters then from time to time we will email you with information about our products or services.  We do understand the nuisance that spam brings and so we will not overwhelm you with constant e-mail marketing. Our e-newsletter system employs a “double opt-in” mechanism. Upon registering upon the site you will be sent an automated message asking you to confirm your subscription to the newsletter. If you do not confirm your subscription, you will not receive any newsletters from us. You can unsubscribe from the e-newsletter at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link on the bottom of each newsletter. You will then be automatically removed from the mailing list.

Copies of any e-mail messages you send us may be stored on our computer systems and those of our web hosting service providers. We will never pass any personal information provided in any communication to any one else.

Website Tracking Information

When you visit our website, information is recorded in our server log files. We use the Webaliser statistical software which analyses traffic patterns and site use from this data. This provides anonymous information about how people have found the site, which pages they have visited, which page they exit from, and so on. These statistics are important to us so that we can make the website more effective and easy to navigate. We also use the Google Analytics program for advanced analysis. No personal information is gathered as a result of either activity.

Cookies

Our website uses cookies to control certain site functionality. A cookie is a small data file, stored on the visitor’s computer which identifies the computer to the site and is used to control access to the site content and other functionality such as the enquiry process.

There are two types of cookie used on our site: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporary files used to store information for your current browser session, and are deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies are files that are saved on your computer and contain information that can be read by the site when you return, and are used to manage your user experience, or provide anonymous statistical analysis relating to your visits.

None of the cookies store any personal information that could be used to identify you.

All the cookies are 1st party cookies – this means they are set and used only by our website. No 3rd party cookies (cookies from an external source, typically used to track advertising) are used on our site.

Session cookies for site management: when you access the site, a cookie “token” with a unique encrypted session id code is passed to your computer. This token then controls your access to the site for that session, and is deleted once you close your browser or log off from the site. These cookies are an essential part of the site delivery system, and you will not be able to fully use our site without cookies enabled.

We use Google Analytics to monitor traffic on our site. When you visit our site the Google Analytics program sets certain cookies that record statistical information about your visits to the site, and we are required by law to identify these cookies to you and how they are used. These cookies do not store any personal information that could be used to identify you.
