Your privacy is important to us. We (as the data controller) will always act responsibly with your data. We are committed to the privacy and confidentiality of information provided by you to us.
The term “Personal Data” refers to personally identifiable information such as name, address, date of birth and telephone number. The term “Special Category Data” refers to more sensitive data such as information regarding religion, race, ethnic origin, genetics, politics, trade union membership, health, etc.
We do not share, sell nor distribute Personal Data to unrelated third parties for marketing purposes.
You may provide us with your Personal Data in order to receive information, advice, products or services from us. We may request personal information about you such as your name, address, date of birth, email address, telephone number and we may ask for information which enables us to provide a personalised service to you.
We sometimes supplement the information that you provide with information that is received from third parties. For instance, if inaccurate postcodes are received, we will use third party software to fix them.
In addition to the information we collect as described above, we use technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our website. For example, we use technology to track which pages of our website our visitors view. We also use technology to determine which Web browsers our visitors use. This technology does not identify you personally; it simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our website.
We use this anonymous data to improve the content and functionality of our website and our e-mail updates, to better understand our customers and visitors, and to improve the services we offer.
In order to collect the anonymous data described in the preceding paragraph, we may use temporary “cookies” that remain in the cookies file of your browser until the browser is closed. We consider none of them to be intrusive to you; in fact some will enhance your experience on our website. The cookies that we collect are:
We also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. An IP address is a numeric code that identifies your computer on a network, or in this case, the Internet. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information, such as determining how many of our visitors are from outside of the UK. We may also perform IP lookups to determine which domain you are coming from (i.e. aol.com, yourcompany.com) to more accurately gauge our users' demographics. If you choose to accept these cookies, we believe that it will only enhance your experience on our website. If you choose to accept these cookies, we can’t change that choice for you in the future. We may add further cookies which we consider to be no intrusive in the future. By agreeing to the cookies today, you are also agreeing to cookies which we may choose to use in the future.
We do not share with, nor sell nor distribute your Personal Data to unrelated third parties for marketing purposes.
We may share or transfer the information in our databases to comply with a legal or regulatory requirement, for the administration of justice (for example law enforcement agencies), interacting with anti-fraud databases, to protect your vital interests, the Unclaimed Assets Register (for example in connection with the possible recovery by you of unclaimed distribution payments) to protect the security or integrity of our databases or this website, to take precautions against legal liability, or in the event of our sale, merger, reorganisation, transfer of business, dissolution or similar event.
If false or inaccurate information is provided and fraud is identified, details will be passed to fraud prevention agencies.
Law enforcement agencies may access and use this information.

If we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your Personal Data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.

We strive to maintain the reliability, accuracy, completeness and currency of Personal Data in our databases and to protect the privacy and security of our databases. The security measures in place on our website and computer systems, aim to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of the information you provide to us. We keep your Personal Data only for as long as reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or to comply with any applicable legal or regulatory requirements, or our data retention policy.

Upon receipt of your written request and enough information to permit us to identify your Personal Data, we will (subject to the exceptions to the requirement to disclose under GDPR) disclose to you the Personal Data we hold about you, for example if you wish to see a copy. We will respond to your request within one calendar month of receiving it. We may ask you to provide further information and/or validation of your identity.
