1. Introduction

 

1.1 The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR imposes new obligations and responsibilities on controllers and processors of data.

Although it is a European regulation, the GDPR might apply to our website if we make any of our services, contact and/or access to our site available to persons living in Europe, even if our organisation is not located in Europe.

As a commitment to your privacy, we will always take the necessary steps to ensure that your information is protected and treated securely, as required by GDPR regulations. Any personal details and information you provide to us will be held in accordance with the UK Data Protection Act 1998, securely and confidentially, stored locally on password protected devices, until you either request for your data be removed and/or deleted. 

1.2    We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; in this policy we explain how we will treat your personal information.
