We keep personal data as safe and secure as possible and do our best to protect against loss, unauthorised disclosure or access. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Website. We employ industry standard security measures to protect your information from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. We will retain your information for a reasonable period or as long as the law requires. You should be aware that it is technically impossible to provide a totally secure system on the web and you are responsible for ensuring your own computer system is adequately protected from access by unauthorised persons.
The Data Protection Act gives you the right to access details that we hold about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. A small fee may be payable in respect of any access request. We may also ask you to provide suitable evidence confirming your identity before providing you with such details.
If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to or email us as soon as possible, at the undernoted address. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
