We strongly believe in the importance of keeping your personal information private and confidential.
Our approach is that we should collect and store the minimum amount of information necessary to allow the site to function properly.
We never share any information we collect and manage with any third parties. Nor do we use that information for marketing or promotional purposes or to contact you in any way unless you give specific permission or request such contact.
IP Addresses and Server Logs
We may in some cases record IP addresses (this is not done as a matter of course). The web server, which is owned and operated by a hosting service, not directly by us, creates the usual logs. This information is used solely for maintaining the site, including ensuring security. We do not use the information for tracking the activities of specific visitors to the site.
Email and Online Forms
We provide a contact form and may, from time to time, use other forms on the site. We also allow you to comment on some of the site's content. Any information collected this way is used purely for the stated purpose - eg, any information (such as IP address) collected when a visitor leaves a comment is used purely for managing and displaying the comments. If you send us a message via the contact form, we assume you are giving us permission to get in touch with you.
We reserve the right to publish emails and comments sent to use via the site. We never publish a private email address unless specifically asked to do so by its owner. We reserve the right to edit or shorten comments left on the site.
Changes to this Policy
As statutory and online requirements change so this policy document may change.
