  • Your name and postal address to enable us to contact you
  • Information on how you use the site, using cookies and page tagging techniques

Why we may need it

We use Google Analytics software to collect information about how you use our site. We do this to help make sure the site is meeting the needs of its users and to help us make improvements.

Google Analytics stores information about:

  • The pages you visit on our site
  • How long you spend on each page
  • How you got to our site
  • What you click on while you’re visiting our site

They do not show us your personal information (for example your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are

We also collect data in order to:

  • Improve the site by monitoring how you use it
  • Gather feedback to improve our services, for example our email alerts
  • Respond to any feedback you send us, if you’ve asked us to
  • Send email alerts to users who request them
  • Allow you to access our service and make transactions

What we do with your data

We will not:

  • Sell or rent your data to third parties
  • Share your data with third parties for marketing purposes

We will share your data if we are required to do so by law – for example, by court order, or to prevent fraud or other crime.

How long we keep your data

We will only retain your personal data for as long as:

  • It is needed for the purposes set out in this document
  • The law requires us to

In general, this means that we will only hold your personal data for a minimum of 1 year and a maximum of 7 years.

Children’s privacy protection

Our services are not designed for, or intentionally targeted at, children 13 years of age or younger. We do not intentionally collect or maintain data about anyone under the age of 13.

Where your data is processed and stored

We design, build and run our systems to make sure that your data is as safe as possible at any stage, both while it’s processed and when it’s stored.

How we protect your data and keep it secure

We are committed to doing all that we can to keep your data secure. We have set up systems and processes to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure of your data – for example, we protect your data using varying levels of encryption.

We also make sure that any third parties that we deal with keep all personal data they process on our behalf secure.

Your rights

You have the right to request:

  • Information about how your personal data is processed
  • A copy of that personal data
  • That anything inaccurate in your personal data is corrected immediately

You can also:

  • Raise an objection about how your personal data is processed

The website can tailor its operations to you.

We use the Google Analytics system to examine our websites traffic. Google will register some cookies with your browser. Google Analytics provides us with aggregated statistics of how our website is used. It is not possible for us to identify individuals from the data Google provides.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
