Newsletter Policy

We are open about what data we collect from our web site and what we do with it. New EU legislation called the GDPR now sets out comprehensive requirements for all companies handling personal data. This includes a number of things we must tell you of when we collect data from you. We have covered all these off in this Privacy Policy. We have done our best to make this policy as simple and clear as possible. With this in mind we have laid out this document in question and answer format.

What we will send
Our newsletters may, from time to time, contain links to websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites. Should you subscribe to a third party website or newsletter, then you will have given your consent independently. We will not share your personal details with any third party company.

What data will be collected about me?
If you choose to sign up for our newsletter, or enter a promotion then only the data we ask you to enter will be stored on a UK server. We collect your data solely to provide the service or information you have requested i.e. to send you the newsletter, enter you for a competition etc. We don’t use your data for any kind of profiling or subsequent marketing.

Who is responsible for my data?
