This policy sets out the basis on which we shall use any personal information we receive from you, whether through the website or otherwise. We reserve the right to change this policy from time to time and in such cases, a revised policy will be posted on our website.
If you provide your contact details (including your address, telephone number or email address) to us (for example, when requesting a newsletter, other information or advice, providing your comments or queries or supplying a CV for recruitment purposes) we will retain and store such information in our database to the extent necessary to provide the service you have requested.

Any information you provide to us about a third party is on the basis that such party has agreed to our processing his or her personal information for data protection purposes.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties:
- In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.

In order to facilitate use of this website, we use ‘cookies’. A cookie is a small text file sent by our server to a user’s web browser which enables the server to collect information from the browser. This helps us to monitor the use of the website and users’ browsing patterns, to build up a demographic profile and to review, improve and customise the website’s content and layout (on the basis of data which is totally anonymous and cannot be linked to an individual user). It also assists you to use this website more efficiently (for example, by ensuring your computer is in the same session while you browse from page to page and enabling you to change your personal details easily and to complete more than one form on the website without re-entering your details).
There are two types of cookies – ‘session cookies’ which remain in the cookie file in a user’s browser during the session but are erased once the browser is closed; and ‘persistent cookies’ which remain on a user’s hard drive for an extended period (although they can be removed by the user – see http://www.microsoft.com/info/cookies.htm).
When a user accesses the website, information will be temporarily stored in a cookie until the session has been completed (a session cookie). For more information about the cookies used on our site see our Cookies Policy.
