This page explains our approach to privacy on our website and how it affects you.

The policy explains areas of this website that may affect your privacy and personal details, how we process, collect, manage and store those details and how your rights under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), DPA (Data Protection Act) & PECR (Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations) are adhered to. 

Additionally, it explains the use of cookies or software, advertising or commercial sponsorship from third parties and the download of any documents, files or software made available to you (if any) on this website. Further explanations may be provided for specific pages or features of this website to help you understand how we, this website and its third parties (if any) interact with you and your computer/device to serve it to you. Our contact information is provided if you have any questions.

In short, the following applies to our website:

  • We collect anonymous usage statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed.
  • Some third parties like Facebook and Twitter may know you visited this website, if you use their services. We can’t control them but we don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.
  • If you share personally identifiable information with us we take great care to keep it safe and we’ll never share it with others without your express permission.
  • We never share your data with third parties except to help us deliver our own services.


These are just the key points. If you need details, keep reading.


Website Compliance

We regularly review website for GDPR compliance and make updates as appropriate. The website uses the HTTPS protocol and is, in addition, otherwise currently compliant.



Like most websites, we use cookies to improve the user’s experience while visiting the website. As required by legislation, where applicable, this website uses a cookie control system, allowing the user to give explicit permission or to deny the use of /saving of cookies on their computer/device.0


What are cookies? Cookies are small files saved to the user’s computer’s hard drive that track, save and store information about the user’s interactions and website usage. This allows the website, through its server, to provide the users with a tailored experience within this website.


Some cookies are necessary and help make our website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure website areas. The website cannot function properly without these cookies. Other cookies are used to help tailor your experience on our website to your interests. Users are advised that if they wish to deny the use and saving of cookies from this website onto their computer’s hard drives, they should take necessary steps within their web browser security settings to block all cookies from this website and its external serving vendors or use the cookie control system if available upon their first visit.

If you wish to block cookies, you can do this in your browser settings; you can learn more about cookies and how to block them here.


Social media cookies

These services provide social buttons and similar features we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons. To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function, their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example, Facebook uses this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Social networks, therefore, could know that you’re viewing this website if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive, we imagine this is not a concern for most users.


We use cookies to personalise our social media content and ads including Google AdWords, Facebook Advertising, Instagram Advertising, Twitter Advertising, LinkedIn Advertising and Tik-Tok Advertising. This helps us to provide social media features and to analyse our traffic so we can deliver you bespoke information and remarketing advertisement information. We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners who may combine it with other information that you’ve provided to them or that they’ve collected from your use of their services. You consent to our cookies if you continue to use our website.


Social media policy usage

We adopt a Social Media Policy to ensure our business and our staff conduct themselves accordingly online. While we may have official profiles on social media platforms users are advised to verify the authenticity of such profiles before engaging with, or sharing information with such profiles. We will never ask for user passwords or personal details on social media platforms. Users are advised to conduct themselves appropriately when engaging with us on social media.


There may be instances where our website features social sharing buttons, which help share web content directly from web pages to the respective social media platforms. You use social sharing buttons at your own discretion and accept that doing so may publish content to your social media profile feed or page.
