SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION

Protecting your security and privacy is important to us and we make every effort to secure your information and maintain your confidentiality in accordance with the terms of the Data Protection Legislation. The Site is protected by various levels of security technology, which are designed to protect your information from any unauthorised or unlawful access, processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage.

We will do our best to protect your personal data but the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Any such transmission is therefore at your own risk.

WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA 

Given that the Internet is a global environment, using it to collect and process personal data may involve the transmission of data on an international basis. This means for instance that data you pass to us may be processed outside the European Economic Area, although the data will always be held securely and in line with the requirements of UK data protection legislation. By communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way.

At any point while we are in possession of your personal data, you have the following rights under GDPR:

  • Your right of access (you have the right to ask us for copies of your personal information)
  • Your right to rectification (you have the right to ask us to rectify personal information you think is inaccurate. You also have the right to ask us to complete information you think is incomplete)
  • Your right to erasure (you have the right to ask us to erase your personal information in certain circumstances)
  • Your right to restriction of processing (you have the right to ask us to restrict the processing of your personal information in certain circumstances)
  • Your right to object to processing (you have the right to object to the processing of your personal information in certain circumstances)
  • Your right to data portability (you have the right to ask that we transfer the personal information you gave us to another organisation, or to you, in certain circumstances)
