We are notified under the Data Protection Act 1998 and intend to comply with all our obligations under that Act. You consent to our processing of your information.

This privacy policy is not intended to, and does not, create any contractual or other legal rights or obligations on either your or our part.

In order to assist us you may provide us with information from time to time which we may require or use for the purposes of providing you with any required services, information or requested activity including contacting you and providing notification to you in relation to such services or related activity.

We may provide the data collected from you to third party including our agents and contractors in connection with the service. We will inform you prior to disclosing your information to any third party. If you can be identified from the information that is disclosed, then we will not disclose such information without prior notification to you and we will obtain your permission to do so.

You may inform us at any time not to pass on or share your personal information with any third parties.

The registration information you provide may be required to use the service or Site. We will store this information and data and use it to contact you, provide you with further details of the services and otherwise for the normal use, provision of services and improvement of the Site, unless you ask us not to do so.

We may use cookies to store and track information about you. This will assist us in measuring the effectiveness of banner advertising and provide more accurate analysis of site activity. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer.

We are taking and will endeavour to continue taking all reasonable steps in order to protect your personal information and data. However, we cannot guarantee the security of any personal information or data you disclose online, having regard to the nature of the internet. We may use encryption technology from time to time to assist in protecting any information or data which you submit. In any event, you accept the inherent security implications of disclosing information over the internet and agree not to hold us responsible for any breach of security unless we have been negligent or wilfully in default of our obligations under the relevant legislation.

At any time, if you are concerned that the information we hold about you is incorrect, please do not hesitate to contact us to correct such information.

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy and Data Protection Statement at any time by posting revisions on our Site.

 

2. Data Security Policy

We control physical security in relation to the information and personal data that is contained at our facilities and restrict access to the site, buildings, computer rooms, office desk, technology areas, equipment and other facilities where unauthorised access by people could compromise our security.

All proprietary or confidential information, including personal data, is contained or stored on computer and any that is contained and stored on manual files is locked up and secure.

We control access to information and personal data, including existing procedures for authorising and authenticating users as well as software controls for restricting access and techniques for protecting data such as encryption.

We maintain a business continuity plan as a contingency plan which identifies our business functions and assets (including personal data) which would need to be maintained in the event of disaster and set out the procedures for protecting and restoring them if necessary.

In respect of detection and investigation of breaches where they occur, we have in place relevant controls which should alert us to a breach in security. We endeavour to investigate every breach of security.

The Company cannot guarantee the security of any personal information or data disclosed to it or collected by it.
