Information We Collect.
Information you give us: We will collect the information that you give to us when using our website. If you choose to fill in a contact form on the website, you may be asked to provide information about yourself, such as your name and contact details. We will also collect information that you provide to us by corresponding with us by phone, e-mail or otherwise.
Information we collect about you: This is different to “information you give us” because it relates to technical data that we collect. We may collect technical information that has the potential to identify you, such as the internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the internet, your login information, browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform. We may also collect information about your visit, including the full uniform resource locators (URL) clickstream to, through and from our site (including date and time), searches made, page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction (such as scrolling, clicks and mouse-overs), methods used to browse away from the page and any phone number used to call us.
Information we receive about you from third parties: We may receive information about you if you use any of the other websites we work with to provide our services. We are also working closely with third parties (including, for example, social media platforms, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers and search information providers) and may receive information about you from them.

Storing Your Personal Data
Data that is provided to us is stored on our secure servers in the UK. The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk.
Hosting may be provided by a company operating outside the EEA. Territories outside of the EEA may not have equivalent legal protections to those that apply within the EEA but we are under a duty to make sure that our suppliers and contractors located outside of the EEA continue to take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this policy. By submitting your personal data to us, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.
Third Party Links
You may find links to third party websites on our website. These websites should have their own privacy policies which you should check. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for their policies whatsoever as we have no control over them.
Access To Your Personal Data
We retain access to all personal information that we have collected from you or about you. We do not pass on your information to any third parties.
If our business is sold or merged, or if we sell or buy any business or assets, we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets. We will make sure that any such transfer is done in a secure way.
If we offer or supply a service to you that is provided on our behalf by a third party we may have to pass your information to them in order to deliver the service. By using this website you consent to us providing your information to the third parties authorised by us to provide such services.
We will not otherwise disclose, sell or distribute your information to any third party without your permission unless we are required to do so by law or to obtain professional advice. We will retain your information for as long as is reasonable and necessary and no longer than permitted by law.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data at any time.
