    By using our website you consent to our use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy.

  3. Collecting personal information
  4. We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:

    1. 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 and website navigation paths);
    2. information contained in or relating to any communications that you send to us or send through our website (including the communication content and meta data associated with the communication);
    3. any other personal information that you choose to send to us.

    Before you disclose to us the personal information of another person, you must obtain that person's consent to both the disclosure and the processing of that personal information in accordance with the terms of this policy.

  5. Using Personal Information
  6. Personal information submitted to us through our website will be used for the purposes specified in this policy or on the relevant pages of the website.

    We may use your personal information to:

    1. administer our website and business;
    2. personalise our website for you;
    3. send you non-marketing commercial communications;
    4. send you marketing communications relating to our business which we think may be of interest to you, by post or, where you have specifically agreed to this, by email or similar technology (you can inform us at any time if you no longer require marketing communications);
    5. deal with enquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to our website;
    6. verify compliance with the terms and conditions governing the use of our website.

    We will not, without your express consent, supply your personal information to any third party for the purpose of their or any other third party's direct marketing.

  7. Disclosing personal information
  8. We may disclose your personal information to any of our employees, officers, insurers, professional advisers, agents, suppliers or subcontractors insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this policy.

    We may disclose your personal information:

    1. to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
    2. in connection with any ongoing or prospective legal proceedings;
    3. in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk);
    4. to the purchaser (or prospective purchaser) of any business or asset that we are (or are contemplating) selling; and
    5. 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 policy, we will not provide your personal information to third parties.

  9. Retaining personal information
  10. Our data retention policies and procedures are designed to help ensure that we comply with our legal obligations in relation to the retention and deletion of personal information.

    Personal information that we receive by email or similar technology will be added to our email archives automatically from where it can be retrieved in future if required for the purposes described in this policy.

    With the exception of information included in our email archives, other copies of personal information that we process for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes.

    Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Section 5, we will retain documents (including electronic documents) containing personal data:

    1. to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
    2. if we believe that the documents may be relevant to any ongoing or prospective legal proceedings; and
    3. in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk).
  11. Security of your personal information
  12. We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.

    We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure (password- and firewall-protected) computers.

    You acknowledge that the transmission of information over the Internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet.

    You are responsible for keeping the password you use for accessing our website confidential; we will not ask you for your password (except when you log in to our website).

  13. Amendments
  14. We may update this policy from time to time by publishing a new version on our website.

    You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes to this policy.

  15. Your rights
  16. You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you; provision of such information will be subject to:

    1. the payment of a fee (currently fixed at GBP 10); and
    2. the supply of appropriate evidence of your identity (for this purpose, we will usually accept a photocopy of your passport certified by a solicitor or bank plus an original copy of a utility bill not more than three months old showing your current address).

    We may withhold personal information that you request to the extent permitted by law.

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

    In practice, you will usually either expressly agree in advance to our use of your personal information for marketing purposes, or we will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of the use of your personal information for marketing purposes.

  21. Cookies
  22. Our website uses cookies.

    A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

    Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

    Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

    We use both session and persistent cookies on our website. We use session cookies to keep track of you whilst you navigate the website and increase website security. We use the persistent cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you visit and keep track of your preferences in relation to your use of our website.

    We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information. Google's privacy policy is available at http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html.

    Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies; for example:

    1. in Internet Explorer (version 10) you can block cookies using the cookie handling override settings available by clicking "Tools", "Internet Options", "Privacy" and then "Advanced";
    2. in Firefox (version 24) you can block all cookies by clicking "Tools", "Options", "Privacy", selecting "Use custom settings for history" from the drop-down menu, and unticking "Accept cookies from sites"; and
    3. in Chrome (version 29), you can block all cookies by accessing the "Customise and control" menu, and clicking "Settings", "Show advanced settings" and "Content settings", and then selecting "Block sites from setting any data" under the "Cookies" heading.

    Blocking all cookies will have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, although you will still be able to use all the features of our website.

    You can delete cookies already stored on your computer; for example:

    1. in Internet Explorer (version 10), you must manually delete cookie files (you can find instructions for doing so at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278835);
    2. in Firefox (version 24), you can delete cookies by clicking "Tools", "Options" and "Privacy", then selecting "Use custom settings for history", clicking "Show Cookies", and then clicking "Remove All Cookies"; and
    3. in Chrome (version 29), you can delete all cookies by accessing the "Customise and control" menu, and clicking "Settings", "Show advanced settings" and "Clear browsing data", and then selecting "Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data" before clicking "Clear browsing data".
