We do everything possible to protect visitor privacy and to ensure the security of all information and data. We will never give or sell your details to a third party except where we are obliged to by law (see the section on Confidentiality, below). This section of the site explains how we use your information.


We may collect information about you for these reasons:

  1. to enable you to register as a user on this website
  2. to be able to respond to enquiries made via a contact form on this website

There are certain pieces of information which we may request, including name, email address and telephone number.

Once we have this information, we will be able to answer your enquiries and tailor a response to meet your needs.  Your email address will NOT be published anywhere on this website or elsewhere by us. Your website address and your name will be published beneath the WILL DO pledge you are making.

The information we hold will be accurate and up to date. You can assist us in doing this by advising us of any updates to your contact information. You can also check the information that we hold about you by emailing us. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly.
