This Privacy Policy sets out how we collect and manage personal information and the steps we take to protect it. This Privacy Policy does not affect our obligation of confidentiality to you if you are our client.

How and why we collect personal information via our website

You provide most of your personal information directly to us and for a specific purpose. When we collect personal information, we will whenever practical, outline why this information is being collected.

In order to respond to your enquiries with the information you request, we will use the personal contact details you provide via our website. We may also use your information to contact you so that we may offer other related services to you.

Your data may also be available to our website provider to enable us and them to deliver their service to us, carry out analysis and research on demographics, interests and behavior of our users and supporters to help us gain a better understanding of them to enable us to improve our services. This may include connecting data we receive from you on the website to data available from other sources. Your personally identifiable data will only be used where it is necessary for the analysis required, and where your interests for privacy are not deemed to outweigh their legitimate interests in developing new services for us. In the case of this activity the following will apply:

  1. Your data will be made available to our website provider
  2. The data that may be available to them include any of the data we collect as described in this privacy policy.
  3. Our website provider will not transfer your data to any other third party, or transfer your data outside of the EEA.
  4. They will store your data for a maximum of 7 years.
