The Website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of the Website. A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we put on your computer if you agree. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse the Website and also allows us to improve the Website. By continuing to browse the Website, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

We may use the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of the Website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of the Website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
  • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the Website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way the Website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to the Website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).

Where and How We Store Your Personal Data

The data that we collect from you will be stored on our secure servers based in the United Kingdom with fire walled server infrastructure and swipecard only access to the data centres.

We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted.

We use SSL encryption with forward secrecy where it is available on your browser and store the information we collect in encrypted format within the database where appropriate.

The members of our staff who can access the data are limited to those for whom it is necessary and all such staff have a valid UK Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB) check.
