Information you supply on digital services transactions available on the site will only be used for the purpose(s) stated on the form.

Information you provide in emails to us will only be used for the purpose (which we reasonably believe) that you give it to us for.

Information you provide us with may be used for statistical research but will not be used in any way (beyond its original purpose) which enables you to be identified.

Please note, that the Site forums make user generated content available anyone with access to the internet. Only registered users can provide content for and participate in these facilities. In registering and using these facilities you agree to abide by the Acceptable Use Policy.

You will not receive unsolicited paper or electronic mail as a result of using a digital transaction unless we explicitly ask for and / or get your permission.

If you email us, we will not send unsolicited emails to your address unless we explicitly ask for and/ or get your permission.

We provide links from this web site to other sites to provide you with additional information but we cannot guarantee that such links will always work, and we make no representations as to the quality or accuracy of the sites or their terms of use (for example their privacy policy).


To make this site simpler, we sometimes place small data files on your computer. These are known as cookies. This site uses cookies to store information on your computer.

Some cookies on this site are essential, and the site won't work as expected without them. These cookies are set when you submit a digital transaction, login or interact with the site by doing something that goes beyond clicking on simple links.

We also use some non-essential cookies to anonymously track visitors or enhance your experience of the site. If you're not happy with this, you can request that these cookies are disabled but some nice features of the site may be unavailable.

Safeguards and Security

No data transmitted over the internet can be entirely secure, so we do not guarantee the security of your personal information. However, we use reasonable endeavours to protect the security of your personal information from unauthorised access or use by using encryption technology. In addition to these safeguards, your personal information is protected in the UK by the General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (GDPR) & Data Protection Act 2018. This provides that the information which we hold about you should be processed fairly and lawfully, should be accurate, relevant and not excessive, not be retained for longer than is necessary and, if applicable, be kept up to date.
