We ask for information from the user on our enquiry form. Information gathered through this form will be held in a database at our offices in accordance with GDPR and ISO 9001 regulations. This information may be used periodically for marketing and business compliance.
Our website uses small text files, called cookies, which are automatically stored on your device when you access and use certain features of our website.

FROM OTHER WEBSITES
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
WHO WE SHARE
YOUR DATA WITH
We may share your personal information with:
Our website developers, analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our website (though such information will be anonymised where possible so that you cannot be identified).
Other third parties we use to help us run our business, e.g. sub-contractors.
Any actual or prospective buyer of our business or its assets.
As required by law or any order of a court or other competent authority.
HOW LONG WE
RETAIN YOUR DATA
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
WHAT RIGHTS YOU
HAVE OVER YOUR DATA
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
SEND YOUR DATA
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
If you have any questions, comments or requests regarding this Policy please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are unhappy with the way you have been treated in relation to the data we collect and our processing of it you can raise a complaint with the Information Commissioners Office.
How we protect your data
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted and any transmission is therefore at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict internal procedures and security measures to try to prevent unauthorised access.
What data breach procedures we have in place
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. In the event of a data breach we will contact our regulatory bodies and the Information Commissioners Office within the required time frames of the breach and follow the guidelines and best practice imposed.
