This is the dullest part of any website, and just slightly more interesting than watching paint dry. But it is also one of the most important, so please do read it to ensure we are meeting standards which are satisfactory to you.
Trust is a precious currency and your feedback is welcome.
We and this website already comply with European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), which are due to come into effect from May 2018. We also comply with Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR).
This policy will be updated accordingly, as and when required.

We currently do not carry adverts or sponsored links.

Where we have clearly stated and made you aware of the fact, and where you have given your express permission, we may use your details to send you products/services information through a mailing list system. This will be done in accordance with GDPR regulations.
We operate an email mailing list program, used to inform subscribers about products, services and/or news we supply/publish. You can subscribe through an online automated process where you have given your explicit permission.
Subscriber personal details are collected, processed, managed and stored in accordance with GDPR regulations. Subscribers can unsubscribe at any time through an automated online service, or if not available, other means as detailed in the footer of sent marketing messages.
The type and content of marketing messages subscribers receive, and if it may contain third party content, is clearly outlined at the point of subscription.
Email marketing messages may contain tracking beacons / tracked clickable links or similar server technologies, in order to track subscriber activity within email marketing messages. Where used, such marketing messages may record a range of subscriber data relating to engagement, geographic, demographics and already stored subscriber data.
Where an external email marketing service (EMS) providers are used, clear links will be given to their respective privacy policies.
Although we only look to include quality, safe and relevant external links, you are advised to adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links mentioned throughout this website. External links are clickable text, banners, image links to other websites, or similar.
Shortened URL's - URL shortening is a technique used on the web to shorten Uniform Resource Locators (URL's) to something substantially shorter. This technique is especially used in social media and looks similar to this example – ‘http://bit.ly/zyVUBo’. You should take caution before clicking on shortened URL links and verify their authenticity before proceeding.
We cannot guarantee or verify the contents of any externally linked website despite our best efforts. You should therefore note that clicking on external links is at your own risk, and we cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any external links mentioned.

We will never ask for user passwords or personal details on social media platforms. You are advised to conduct yourself 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. You can find further information about the specific privacy and usage policies of social media platforms on their respective websites.
