All the data we process is held securely and not shared with third parties unless we are required to do so as part of our activities, accounting procedures and/or by UK law.

In line with the legislative amendments to the Rules on Cookies/similar technologies in 2011, we have audited our website.  We do not utilise any cookies and/or similar technologies on our visitors’ systems.

None of the above affects your rights of access under the legislation.  Should you wish to make a request for any personal data we may hold on you, you should submit this request in writing (email is acceptable) to Mrs M Tickle, Data Protection Officer at the organisation.  We reserve the right to charge the £10 administration fee which is payable in advance and is non-refundable.
