Thank you for visiting the Site.
We are committed to preserving the privacy and maintaining the confidentiality of any information that is provided to us via this website by visitors to the website and by our customers.
We collect, use and retain your personal data only in compliance with UK, EU or other applicable Personal Data Protection laws (“DP Laws”).
If you cancel your order or other transaction, or abandon it before completion, or if for any reason we do not accept you as a customer, we immediately will destroy any personal data you have provided to us. This means that if you re-apply to later to make a purchase or other transaction via this website, you will need to re-key all the data required.
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns.
The website also sets cookies to customise your view of admin interface. This is only relevant to users accessing the admin area of the website.
The website uses two cookies to bypass the password entry portion of the website for users already logged in to the website. If the website recognises that you have valid, non-expired cookies when trying to access an admin page of the website, you go directly to the administration interface. If you don’t have the cookies, or they’re expired, or in some other way invalid, the website will require you to log in again, in order to obtain new cookies.
When users make a comment on articles on this website, they too get cookies stored on their computer. This is purely a convenience, so that the visitor won’t need to re-type all their information again when they want to leave another comment. Three cookies are set for commenters – their name, email address and website address (if given). These comment cookies are set to expire a little under one year from the time they’re set
These cookies contain “hashed” data, so you don’t have to worry about someone gleaning your username and password by reading the cookie data. A hash is the result of a specific mathematical formula applied to some input data (in this case your username and password, respectively). It’s very hard to reverse a hash (bordering on practical infeasibility with today’s computers). This means it is very difficult to take a hash and “unhash” it to find the original input data.
Disclosure of Personal Data to Third Parties
We do not provide third parties with any information about website visitors or customers for any purposes (including for the purposes of carrying out direct marketing ), except such information as we are required to provide under DP Laws and other applicable EU and UK laws and regulations.
When a third party (for example, an Information Service Provider (ISP) or telecommunications company, or a goods delivery service) is involved in a supply of our goods or services to you, we may need or may be required by law to disclose some of your personal data related to that supply of goods or services to that third party. We will provide the third party only with data that are essential to that supply or is required by law.
This web site may provide links to other websites, but we will not provide any of your personal data to the owners of those websites.
