Similar to other commercial websites, our website uses a technology called ‘cookies’ and web server logs to collect information about how our website is used. A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site's web server/computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies.

We maintain the highest standards of security, however the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. So, whilst we will do our best to protect your information, we cannot ensure the security of your data transmitted to our website, any information you submit is sent at your own risk. We request that you do not send private, sensitive or confidential information to us by email, and should you do so it is at your own risk. Once we have received your information we will use strict procedures and security features to minimise the risk of unauthorised access.

The data you provide to us via the website will be held in our software systems. Personal data held within a software system will be securely protected with individual logins, which will only be given to those who need to access the data. If you wish to see the full version of our IT security policy, please contact the Data Protection Officer (DPO).
