Website Privacy Notice

Please download our Website Privacy Notice which explains when and why we collect personal information about people who visit our website, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.

We may update this Website Privacy Notice from time to time so please check this page occasionally to ensure that you are happy with the changes. By using our website, you are agreeing to be bound by this Privacy Notice.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any information is encrypted and protected with the following software 128 Bit encryption on SSL. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear in your web browser, meaning the connection between you and the server is secure.

Non-sensitive details (sent via email forms) 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.

Our website may contain links to other websites run by other organisations. This website privacy notice applies only to our website‚ so we encourage you to read the privacy statements on the other websites you visit. 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.
