Privacy Policy

This privacy policy (together with our Terms of Use and any other documents referred to in it) sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us in order to meet the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 (“the Act”). Please read the following carefully to understand our practices regarding your personal data.


We may collect and process the following data from you:

1.1 Information about you that you provide by filling in forms on our website (“our Site”) or when you request further information or services from us.

1.2 Information about your computer including, where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

1.3 Details of your visits to our Site and the pages and resources that you access.

1.4 Information about your general internet usage obtained using a cookie file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer.

1.5 COOKIES. A “cookie” is a small electronic file that collects information when someone visits a website. A cookie can identify the pages that are being viewed, and this can assist us to select the pages that the viewer sees. Some cookies only exist whilst viewers are online, but “persistent” cookies – which are not session-based – remain on the viewer’s computer, so that he or she can be recognised as a previous visitor when he or she next visits our Site. This allows us to collect information about a viewer’s browsing habits whilst on our Site which can be useful in assisting us to monitor and improve our services.

1.6 We do not store sensitive information in "persistent" cookies, and cookies in themselves, do not contain enough information to identify you. You will only acquire a personal identity in relation to your browsing habits after you have formally provided us with your personal data for the purposes outlined in point 2 below.

1.7 GIF AND OTHER WEB TOOLS. In addition to using cookies, we might also use GIFs and other web tools to collect information about your browsing activities whilst on our site. In this respect the information that is provided is similar to the information supplied by cookies, and we use it for the same purposes.

1.8 Any information that we acquire about you using cookies, GIFs or other web tools is subject to the same restrictions and conditions as any other information we collect about you.

1.9 You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if you select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of our Site. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to our Site.


1.11 Some sites linked to our Site and/or some of our advertisers may also use cookies, GIFs, or other web tools that are set by other people such as advertising agencies, or the businesses to which the websites and/or the advertisements in question relate.  We do not have access to any information that might be collected in this way, and, if you are concerned, you should contact the third party website and/or advertiser for more information.

  2.1.2 To assess your eligibility for and, if eligible, to provide you with information and/or services that you may request from us.

We may, for example, perform statistical analyses of the behaviour of the users of our website in order to measure interest in the various areas of our Site, and the businesses within our Group as to how many users visited their individual websites directly from ours. This information, and any other general information about our users that we share with our other businesses and other partners, will not disclose personal information about you.

2.4 We may disclose your personal information to third parties:

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to and stored at a destination outside the European Economic Area. By submitting your data you agree to such transfer, storage and processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Because laws and regulations applicable to personal information vary from country to country, we may put in place additional measures dependant upon the applicable legal requirements of other jurisdictions.

So, while we do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot ensure the security of your data transmitted to our site. Any transmission is at your own risk.
