Information about website visits

We may collect information about your visits to this website such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views. We may use this information in the administration of this website, to improve the website’s usability, and for marketing purposes where you give consent for this.

Who will see the data?

People in our organisation or working for our organisation who need your data in order to carry out the service we are providing you or for marketing purposes, which you have consented to.

After collecting data from you that you have consented for us to use, we may transfer it other parts of our organisation or to trusted and reputable third-party service providers, such as a mailing list provider or payment system. We will only do this where we have a legitimate reason or consent to do so such as where you have said we can keep you up to date with our activities. All of the service providers we use are required to maintain the confidentiality and security of your personal data and to use it only in compliance with data privacy laws and for specified and instructed purposes. Each service provider is also responsible for their use of your personal data, according to the rules set in their own privacy policies.

Using your personal data

Personal data submitted on this website will be used for the purposes specified in this privacy policy or in relevant parts of the website. The data you share and provide will be used to carry out the services that you request from us. We will only use it to contact you where we have a legitimate reason to do so, or where you have provided consent for this: it will only be used for the purpose for which it is supplied.

In addition to the uses identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may use your personal information to: improve your browsing experience by personalising the website; send to you marketing communications relating to our organisation which we think may be of interest to you where you have specifically agreed to this, by email or similar technology (you can inform us at any time if you no longer require marketing communications to be sent by emailing us).

At any time you can change your mind or withdraw your consent about the way we use your personal data. If you wish to do this, please contact [email protected].

There may be circumstances where we are required to disclose personal data without seeking the consent of the data subject. Where these circumstances occur, we will employ legal assistance where necessary, verify the request is legitimate and only then disclose the data. This is to the extent that we are required to do so by law.

How long do we hold information for?

If we have not had meaningful contact with you for two years, we will review and delete any personal data we hold.

At any time you may ask us to delete your personal data, and we will do so subject to any legal restrictions or our ability to do so. Any personal data that is deleted is logged anonymously, with details on what was removed and when this took place.

How can you control your personal information?

In the event that you do not wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, ensure that you don’t tick the appropriate boxes next to any forms which state there is an opportunity to sign up to marketing. If you sign up to our newsletter, you may unsubscribe at any time either by replying to an email with the word “unsubscribe” in the subject line, or by emailing us at any time at [email protected].

You can change your mind about the personal information we hold at any point. Contact us and ask us to delete your information from our mailing list, or to completely erase any personal data we hold on you on our system. Contact [email protected] to ask that this is done.
