Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer’s hard drive by websites you visit to enable the site to ’remember’ who you are. In general, cookies are only visible to the site that serves them, not to other websites. ‘Serves’ means places on your computer’s hard drive.

The Cookies we use

We do not use ’spyware’, that is web bugs or hidden identifiers or other similar devices to gain access to information, store hidden information or to trace your activities.

Traffic data

We keep a record of traffic data which is logged automatically by the website host. This includes your IP address and which pages you visit on our site. We do not store or analyse this traffic data in a way that identifies any individual.

What we do with your information

When we share it

We may disclose your information to law enforcement or regulatory bodies if required to do so by them.

We may also disclose your information to a third party in the context of actual or threatened legal proceedings or if otherwise required to do so by law.

Your information will not be disclosed to or shared with any third party except as specified above.

How we keep it secure

Only authorised personnel and contractors have access to your information.

We will keep your information secure by taking appropriate technical and organisational measures against its unauthorised or unlawful processing and against its accidental loss, destruction or damage.

Transfers outside Europe

Data protection legislation is harmonised throughout the European Economic Area (EEA), which comprises the EU member states, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. Countries outside the EEA do not generally have the same level of protection for personal information as those within the EEA.

Because of the way the Internet works, it is possible that the information you provide to us could be routed via countries outside the EEA. However this is not considered a ‘transfer’ under data protection legislation and unless you are from outside the EEA, we will not transfer any information we collect from you outside the EEA without your permission or as permitted by law.
