Information we may collect from you
We may collect and store personal information that you provide to us through your use of our website, including contact information, such as your name and e-mail address and other personal information you provide to us.
Our website uses third-party online analytics services, such as Google Analytics. The service providers that administer these analytics services use automated technologies to collect data to evaluate use of our website and to diagnose technical issues.
To learn more about Google Analytics visit https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB.

Through our website, certain third parties, such as Google, may collect information about your online activities to provide you with advertising about products and services tailored to your individual interests. Where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent for the processing of your personal information for such marketing purposes. Online advertising networks use information they collect to show adverts that may be tailored to individuals’ interests, to track users’ browsers or devices across multiple websites and apps, and to build a profile of users’ online browsing and app usage activities. This data collection takes place on third-party websites and apps that participate in the advertising networks.
If you want to opt out of interest-based advertising you can update your choices here or click the AdChoices icon in an advert and follow the instructions. You may also opt out of interest-based adverts from many sites through the Network Advertising Initiative’s (NAI) Opt Out Tool including specifically in the UK. You may also go to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Consumer Choice Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and choices regarding having information used by DAA companies. If you delete cookies, use a different device, or change web browsers, you may need to opt out again.
Opting out of interest-based advertising does not mean that you will no longer see adverts. It just means that your personal information will not be used and that any advertising you see will not be customised for you.

Disclosure of your information
We do not disclose personal information we obtain about you, except as described in this website privacy notice.
We may share your personal information with partner agencies and service providers who perform services on our behalf – such as hosting our website or data analytics.

We do not authorise our service providers to use or disclose the information that we collect except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements.

- in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity,
- in the event we sell or transfer all, or a portion of, our business or assets (including in the event of a reorganisation, dissolution or liquidation).
We will only share or transfer personal data to entities located outside of the country in which the information was originally collected in accordance with the law to ensure your rights are appropriately protected.
