We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website(s) visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.

What information do we collect?
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of data:

Analytics information
We use “Google Analytics” which collects information about your visits to and use of the website (Typically this includes your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views) – This is anonymous, there is no personal information included. This is used in analysis to help us understand how the site is used, what is effective and where further development may be required.    

Contact Information and Correspondence
If you contact us by email or via an online form (which is delivered via email) this communication is archived by our email service provider or in our own system as a record of correspondence. For security reasons we record the IP address of online form users, this is necessary in case of unauthorised correspondence being made, to identify the sender.

Your contact details will only be used in connection with our business, we do not sell or otherwise distribute your personal details to third parties. As we publish a number of websites we may contact you in relation to these where we think it appropriate.

Publication on the website
If you request a listing, advertisement, article or other item to be published we may include a website link, email details or telephone number at our discretion. It is our general practice to check with the requestor regarding errors or amendments upon publication.
If you request publicity for an item or event for one of our websites at our discretion we may also include it on one or more of our other websites. General practice would be to inform the requestor of this and ask for all items to be checked for errors or amendments.
If we voluntarily include a listing (at our discretion) this will only contain information, website links, email addresses or telephone numbers that are already in the public domain (generally taken from the organisations own website)

In simple terms cookies are small packets of information passed to your web browser when you visit a website. These may be “session” cookies which expire when you close your browser or “persistent” which may have an expiry date.
On our websites these are used in a number of ways, some are used in processes or functions performed by the website, for example remembering and setting display settings, others are used for analytical purposes and some in providing data to advertisers.
