You may have heard by now about some new rules governing what can and can’t be done with information about you, specifically in conjunction with websites.
General Data Protection Regulation
They’re contained within the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR); which gives you more control over how your personal information is used – and makes it quicker and easier for you to check and update the information we and other organisations hold about you.
Rest assured that as we’ve always done, we’ll continue to collect, store and share your data safely and securely.
In anticipation of the changes, we’ve adjusted elements of our Privacy Notice to give your data even more protection – and have re-written the Policy to cut through the legal nonsense and spell out exactly what we do with your details.
It all boils down to six Pledges. We promise that we will:
- Only use the information you give us to contact yourselves or authorised parties.
- Protect your data like it’s our own
- Only ever pass on details when authorised
- Give you the power to decide if we store or discard of your details
- Delete your information as soon as we no longer need it
- We will never sell your information to third parties

We would find it difficult to analyse how well our Site was performing and improve it without these cookies.
- Social Sharing – We use third party cookies to allow you to share content directly on the social networking/sharing sites like Facebook, Twitter or Google+. Examples would be if you wanted to “like” or “tweet” about us or our products or services. Please see our “Third Party Cookies” section below for more details.
- Interest-Based Advertising – You will have noticed that when you visit websites you will be shown adverts for products and services you may wish to buy. The money made by website owners for showing third party adverts on their websites often pays for the cost of running the website and therefore usually allows you to use the website without having to pay a registration or usage fee. To try and ensure that the adverts you see are relevant to you third party cookies may be used to collect information about the types of things that interest you, for example websites you visit and the geography that you are based in. Having these cookies does not increase the number of adverts you will be shown, but simply makes the adverts you see more relevant. Please see our “Third Party Cookies” section below for more details.
