Third party providers such as google and stripe which may provide services also set cookies. Our website may also contain links to other websites of interest.

Information about our customers is important to us. We share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity and in accordance with legal requirements. We really appreciate it if you let us know if your contact details change.
When your information is no longer required, we will ensure it is disposed of in a secure manner.
If you ask us to stop sending you information, we will keep a record of your contact details and appropriate information to enable us to comply with your request not to be contacted by us.
You have a right to ask us to stop processing your personal data, and you have a right to ask to access your personal data and to obtain certain information.
If there are any discrepancies in the information we provide, please let us know and we will correct them. If you want to access your information, send a description of the information you want to see by email to the address below.

In some circumstances, such as when the data is no longer required or if the use of the data has no legal justification, you have the right to have that data erased, as well as the right to object to our handling of your data. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time when we rely on consent as a legal ground to justify our handling of your personal data. This would not affect the lawfulness of anything done before consent is withdrawn but it would stop us from continuing to use the relevant information.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office about how we manage your data.
Our privacy notice may be updated at any time, so please check it from time to time. We may, for example, change the way we process your information, or there may be a change in law.
