Privacy policy

By using this website, you consent to the collection and use of your information under the terms of this policy as in force at the time of use.

1. What information we collect from you

There are two types of information we collect: information that allows us to identify specific individuals and information of a more generalised nature.

Personal information

Whenever we ask you for information that enables us to identify you it will be clear that we are doing so and in every case you will have a choice as to how we use the information that is asked for. Information of this type will only be asked for on those parts of our websites that allow transactions to be performed, in contrast to those parts of our websites that are merely informational in their function. 

Information of this type will also be collected when you contact us directly by email for any reason or if you specifically request that we send you information.

Anonymised user information

This type of information helps us to enhance the website and improve its navigability. It also helps us to improve the quality of the online services and information you can access. In order to facilitate this, we use cookies to identify specific information about your visits to the site.

2. Why we collect personal information from you

Your personal information is needed so that you can use the transactional areas of our website.

It is also needed so that we can contact you if you have asked us to do so or if it is necessary as part of a particular transactional process, for example in order to validate your authorised user status in relation to a transaction.

3. How we use your personal information

Your personal information enables us to supply the services you have requested. It will also enable us to contact you where necessary.

We may use your information to contact you for your views on our services and to notify you occasionally about important changes or developments to the website or our services. Further, where you have consented, we might also use your information to let you know about other products and services which we offer which may be of interest to you and we may contact you by post, telephone or fax, as well as by e-mail. If you change your mind about being contacted in the future, please let us know.

4. Protection of your personal information

If you make donations by credit card, your credit card details will not be stored on our servers:- they will be stored by PayPal on the basis of its terms of use and privacy policy.  

Unless required to do so by law or to protect our own interests, we will not otherwise share or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent and we will not sell your personal information without such consent.

We employ security measures to protect your personal information from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. All personal information transmissions that provide payment or account details are encrypted using the security standard known as Secure Socket Layer (SSL), which encrypts information you input.

We will retain your information for a reasonable period or as long as the law requires.

5. Accessing and changing your personal information

You are entitled to see the information held about you and you may ask us to make any changes to ensure that it is accurate and kept up to date and reflects any change in preferences you may have previously expressed about the way in which we can use your personal information. If you wish to do this, please contact us.

6. Cookies

A cookie is a small file that is put on your computer. This file identifies specific information about your visits to the site. Cookies can only be read, and therefore used, by our web servers. Our cookies do not save or store any personal information as such: they take the form of a unique numerical identifier that enables a computer, but not an individual, to be recognized. Cookies do not detect and cannot access any information you may have on your computer.

7. Changes to our privacy policy

Any changes to our privacy policy in the future will be posted to the website and, where appropriate, through e-mail notification. Unless otherwise specified all such changes will take effect immediately upon posting to the website.
