Collection of Personal Data including e-mail addresses
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, postal address, email address, telephone numbers and we may ask for information which enables us to provide a personalised service to you. The information you give us is either manually or electronically stored in our databases.
We sometimes supplement the information that you provide with information that is received from third parties. For instance, if inaccurate post codes are received, we will use third party software to fix them.
To comply with money laundering regulations, we may need to request additional evidence of identity from you, and may use a credit reference agency for this purpose (who will record that an enquiry has been made).
In order to collect the anonymous data, we may use temporary “cookies” that remain in the cookies file of your browser until the browser is closed. You may choose to accept these cookies or decline them. We consider none of them to be intrusive to you; they only enhance your experience on our website. The cookies that we collect are:
Session and Person ID Cookies – These allow us to place you on a more suitable page based on your previous visits to our website – it will enable you to get to the content we believe you want, quicker. We collect no personal data that would enable us to physically identify you from this Cookie.
Website Analytics data – We’ll not collect data that enable us to identify you. The only cookies which you may consider could be intrusive are those that identify which county/area of the country you come from, and if you are a new, or returning visitor.
__utma, __utmb, __utmc and __utmz cookies - We also use Google Analytics. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily.
NID & PREF cookies – These cookies are third party cookies used by Google. Please take a look at the Google policy to see how they use these cookies. www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/

You Tube cookie – We use this cookie to help maintain the integrity of video statistics, prevent fraud and improve site and video experience. If you play any of the videos in our website, it will drop a cookie.
Cookies by themselves cannot be used to discover the identity of the user. A cookie is a small piece of information which is sent to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies do not damage your computer. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. This enables you to decide if you want to accept it or not.
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.
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 the DPA) disclose to you the Personal Data we hold about you, for which we may make a small charge.
Requests to delete Personal Data are subject to any applicable legal and regulatory requirements or document retention obligations and any of our current contracts which are still in force.
