How we keep your personal details secure
When you use our website some information is collected automatically. This information is normally considered to be non– personal and non—identifying.
We have access to information which includes the webpages that you have visited on our site, the time that you spent on this website, and information about your web browser. This tells us such things as the aperture size you are using, the type of device, your IP address, operating system, and several other factors. All of this is generic data and it is not linked in any way to your own personal visit; in other words it is statistical data only.
When we view automatically collected data we only use it for analysing the usage of our website. This allows us to determine which pages are popular, and which ones people spent the most time on. As a consequence we are able to make sure that our website is relevant to our visitors, and we are able to make improvements to it from time to time.
We do not ask directly for information from our visitors. However it is quite possible that you may contact us in the future in order to pass comments or make a query. Whether this is sent to us via email, telephone or post we are likely to have not only the information that you have sent to us in your communication but also your name and possibly your email address, home address or telephone number. This information is classed as personal, and personally identifying.
This information is used purely to answer your queries or reply to your comments. We will not use it for sending you any marketing material unless you specifically request it.
Personal information is stored on our office computer systems. All this data is automatically encrypted and we have security systems in place to prevent physical access to our computers by un-authorised persons.
We do not sell, lend, or otherwise transfer any personal information about any of our visitors for financial gain. We will only provide information to a third party if it is legally necessary for us to do so or if we believe that it is necessary in order to prevent, investigate, or take action in respect of suspected illegal activities, to take actions that we believe are necessary in order to protect our website, or in order to protect the health, well-being or financial security of any persons.
You are entitled to know what, if any, personal information we hold about you. You are entitled to know what we do with this information and how we process it, and you can object to any of these if you feel that they breach your rights to privacy. If you believe that we hold personal information about you you may request us to delete it, and we will do so within a reasonable space of time, subject to there being no legal constraints upon us doing so.
