Where we store personal information
We generally store personal information on servers located inside the European Economic Area. However, in certain cases it may be necessary for us to transfer certain information to servers located outside of the EU. It is important to be aware that the privacy protections in certain jurisdictions may not be equivalent to those in Europe but we will only transfer your information outside the EEA where permitted by law and ensuring that it is subject to appropriate protections.
We retain personal data for a range of periods as set out in our Data Retention Policy.
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. A ‘persistent’ cookie will be
stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a ‘session’ cookie will expire at the end of the user session when the web browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Our Site uses category one and category two cookies. Category one cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Category two cookies collect information about how visitors use our Site – for instance, which pages visitors go to most often. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
Category two cookies enable us to use Google Analytics for analysing the use of and improving the Site. Google Analytics gathers information about website use by means of cookies. The information gathered relating to the Site is used to create reports about the use of the Site.
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies and to delete cookies. The methods for doing so vary from browser to browser, and from version to version. You can obtain up-to-date information about blocking and deleting cookies via the support pages made available by your
You can at any time change or withdraw your consent from the Cookie Declaration on our website.
Third parties and security
The site contains links to third-party websites and refers to third-party service providers and other entities. If you follow a link to any third-party website or deal with any third party entity referred to on the site, then you should note that these third parties may have their own privacy and cookie policies and that we are not responsible for their use of any personal data
which you may provide to them. You should ensure that you have read and understood any relevant policies.
Although we do our best to ensure the security of personal data provided to us (and to use only reputable service providers), any transmission of data via the Internet is by its nature insecure and we cannot guarantee the security of any personal data you provide to us.
