Disclosure of your information

We may pass your information on to carefully selected third parties. In such cases, we will only share your information if we have your consent to do so or when they are providing a service to us. For example, a third part developer or an analytics company. Such third parties will only use this information in accordance with our instructions only and not for their own purposes.

We will not market to you or pass your information to any third party for marketing purposes without firstly obtaining your express permission.

Cookies

In common with many other website operators, we may use standard technology called 'cookies' when you use our services. Cookies are small text files which are set by a website or app operator so that your browser or mobile device can be recognised when you use any such service. They typically contain anonymous information such as a unique, randomly generated ID. We may use cookies in our Mobile Apps to provide you with certain functionality items such as push notifications or to learn about your use of our apps. Cookies are not harmful and cannot introduce viruses or extract personal contact information. You can usually change your browser to prevent cookies being stored.

Use of your information outside the European Union

Some of the organisations to which we may disclose your personal information may be situated outside of the European Union. In order to provide you with the products and services you require, we may need to transfer your personal information to these countries, some of which may not protect your privacy rights as extensively as the United Kingdom.

Security

We take the security of your personal information very seriously and have security procedures in place to protect our customer database from any potential loss and/or misuse. We will only allow access to this database when absolutely necessary, and any such access will operate under strict guidelines as to what use may be made of the personal information contained within it.

Social Media Platforms

Communication, engagement and actions taken through external social media platforms that our website and its owners participate on are custom to the terms and conditions, as well as the privacy policies, held with each social media platform respectively.

Neither our website nor its owners will ever ask for personal or sensitive information through social media platforms and will encourage users wishing to discuss sensitive details to contact them through primary communication channels such as telephone or email where necessary.

This website may use social sharing buttons, which help share web content directly from web pages to the social media platform in question. Users are advised before using such social sharing buttons, that they do so at their own discretion and note that the social media platform may track and save your request to share a web page through your social media account.
