When someone visits our website we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make and do not allow Google to make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
As part of the registration process for our regular newsletters, we collect personal information. With your consent, we use that information to keep you up to date with regards to our services, to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information, to check our records are correct and to check every now and then that you are happy and satisfied with our service.
