Privacy Policy

By submitting your personal information to us, you will be seen as having given your permission as appropriate and where necessary for disclosures referred to in this policy.

Purposes of the collection of your data

European Union data protection law has been updated on the 25th May 2018 with the introduction of a new EU level General Data Protection Regulation “GDPR”. This will replace the 1995 Data Protection Directive and all Member State data protection laws. Data protection law requires organisations to handle personal information securely and gives individuals rights in respect to their own data. The new EU law reflects the need to update the legal system for data protection so it is appropriate for our modern information society.

One of many changes in the law relates to the information that must be provided by organisations to individuals when their personal details are collected. The provision of this information means that any consent given to collect and use personal data is appropriately informed. As we hold your contact details from yourself or another party we are informing you of our Data Policy.
