In order to improve our website and better serve our website users, we may use software tools or ‘cookies’ to gather and store information about site visitors’ browsing activities. A cookie is a piece of technology, sometimes called a text file, that is sent from a web server (a website) to a web browser (the visitor’s computer) to enable the browser to remember certain information. The information held by a cookie can only be read by the person who sent it. There are two types of cookie – session cookies and persistent cookies.
Session cookies are used, for example, to maintain security on a site and to pass information that has been entered to other pages on the site to prevent further input of the same information. Indefinite cookies are used to enable browsing habits to be tracked each time the site that sent the cookie is visited. The information that may be gathered includes date and time of visits, pages viewed, time spent at the site and the site visited just before and just after this website.
Cookies can be disabled, generally through changing the Internet software browser settings. It may also be possible to change the settings to enable acceptance of specific cookies. If cookies are disabled it may mean that not all services of a site, or indeed any, are available.
If you provide any personal data to us through this site or via email, we may store such personal data and the collected personal data may be transferred to, processed by and used by us or any member of our group and their agents (including companies based in countries where data protection laws might not exist or be of a lower standard than the EU) for the purposes of aiding in the operation, designing, improving and/or marketing of present and future products and services of the Company and/or members of our group, for market research, general business purposes and as otherwise permitted by law. We are committed to protecting your privacy and will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal data is kept secure against unauthorised access, loss, disclosure or destruction. If you wish, you may also have a copy of the personal data held in relation to you. We may, as allowed by law, charge you a fee for this.
