We may collect details about you, including your name and email address, on this website. This allows us to respond to your messages and understand your needs in order to offer you a better service.

We will always ask for your permission before adding you to a contact database. We will clearly explain that we may use your email address to send out newsletters, offers and other information that you might find interesting before you give your consent. If you subscribe to our mailing lists, you can unsubscribe at any time using the links at the end of our email messages. We will never sell or lease your details to any other parties unless we have your permission or are required to do so by law.

You have rights regarding our storage of your personal information. These include:

  • the right to be forgotten, which means you can ask us to delete all your personal data;
  • the right to object, which means you can say no to our use of your data, for example, for marketing purposes;
  • the right to rectification, which means you can ask us to update incomplete information;
  • the right of access, which means you can find out what information about you is being processed and in what way;
  • the right to raise a complaint with the ICO if you are unhappy with the way that we have collected, stored or used your personal data.

We will only ever keep information for as long as we need it. For example, if you have signed up to a mailing list and then unsubscribe, we will delete all your data stored for this purpose.

If you use the contact form on the website to get in touch, we will respond to you by email or phone. Please let us know if you would prefer not to receive these calls or emails.

You can unsubscribe from our mailing lists at any time by following the links at the end of the emails or by contacting us.


A cookie is a small file which requests permission to be added to your computer hard drive. Cookies allow webpages to respond to your personal likes, dislikes and requirements by collecting information about your preferences. They can also be used to analyse the use of websites.

We will only ever use cookies to identify and analyse which pages are being used. We will use this information for statistical analysis purposes to improve our website for our customers. The data is then deleted.

Cookies enable us to monitor the pages that you find useful and those you don’t, which in turn allows us to improve our website for our customers. Cookies do not give us access to your computer or to any personal data, other than the information you choose to share with us.

You can choose whether to accept or decline cookies if asked by our website. Web browsers tend to automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer you can usually change your settings to decline cookies, although this may affect the functionality of the website.
