The terms ‘personal data’ and ‘sensitive personal data’ refer to the categories of personally identifiable information about you as currently defined by Data Protection legislation and or regulation. For the purposes of this privacy policy references to ‘personal data’ include ‘sensitive personal data’ as appropriate.


Notification of changes to privacy policy

We are continually improving our methods of communication and adding new functionality and features to this website and to our existing services. Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law and the changing nature of technology, our data protection practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, we will notify you. We encourage you to check this page frequently.

You may choose to receive Newsletters, updates or additional information or services from us. When you contact us, we may request personal information about you such as your name, postal address, email address and telephone number.

For instance, if inaccurate postal or zip codes are received, we may use third party software to fix them.


Use of Personal data

We will use your personal data to fulfil your instructions and requirements and we will ask only for data that is adequate, relevant and not excessive for those purposes. Where we send you information for any purpose, it may be sent unless we are otherwise advised by post or email. When we ask you for personal data it may be used for any of the following purposes:

  • To provide services and other information to you
  • To contact you to inform you of our services and events
  • To send you regular updates on issues you have indicated will be of interest to you
  • To send you requested information and details of events
  • To use your personal data for marketing purposes and market research

Anonymous data collected through this website

In addition to the information we collect as described above, we use technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our website. For example, our web server automatically logs which pages of our website our visitors view, their IP addresses and which web browsers they use. This technology enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our website.

Our website contains hyperlinks to other pages on our website. We may use technology to track how often these links are used and which pages on our website our visitors choose to view. Again, this technology does not identify you personally – it simply enables us to compile statistics about the use of these hyperlinks.


Cookies

A cookie is a small file created by a website and then stored on your computer. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can control if and when you allow cookies to be stored on your machine and can view or delete any cookies stored.

We use two types of cookies on our website:

STRICTLY NECESSARY COOKIES - These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features.  Without these cookies, you would not be able to navigate the website and use its functionality.

PERFORMANCE AND STATISTICAL COOKIES – These cookies collect information in an anonymous form about how visitors use our website.

They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they are using it.

We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our website and to improve the service we offer to you.  An IP address is a numeric code that identifies your computer on a network, or in this case, the internet.  Your IP address might also be used to gather broad demographic information.

We may perform IP lookups to determine which domain you are coming from (ie aol.com, yourcompany.com) to more accurately gauge our users' demographics.

Information from these types of cookies and technologies or about website usage is not combined with information about you from any other source.

None of the cookies or technologies that we use will personally identify you.
