Privacy & Cookie Policy

We respect your privacy, so for your peace of mind, we have set out below the way in which we may use information supplied:

If you fill out one of our forms

You will have had to have supplied us with your name and address and certain other information. We will retain this information for a short period of time before disposing of it securely.

We may send you a single reminder about our services, but that’s probably it. We will never disclose any of your details to any third parties. We do not sell, lend or otherwise supply lists of names, postal addresses or email addresses to anyone.

If you are ever concerned about the fact that you supplied us with any information, you have only to contact us and we will do our best to let you have a copy of it, or destroy it if you prefer.

If you become one of our clients

We will hold information on you in accordance with the terms of the Data Protection Act.

Should you require any further details on this, please contact us.

Cookies

By using this website you are agreeing to cookies being placed on your computer.

Cookies are small, harmless, text files that can be stored on your computer when you visit our website. They enable us to recognise you when you revisit us, and also enable us to provide you with a smooth and secure experience when navigating the website.

There are, in broad terms, two principle types of cookie: Transient and Persistent.

Transient cookies only exist on your computer while you browse a website during one session and are deleted when you close your web browser.

Some cookies are placed on your computer by the owner of the website (first-party cookies) while others are placed there by third parties, e.g. those who provide a service to the web owner.
