We do all we can to protect the privacy of all of our visitors, and comply with the provisions of the Data Protection Act of 1998. We try to ensure that we work to the highest possible standards in protecting personal data and sensitive information.
We take positive steps to prevent unauthorised third parties from accessing any of our data and attempt to keep abreast of any new developments which may endanger this. We will not under any circumstances sell, hire, or lease any information to other companies.
We sometimes collect information in order to help our visitors to select products or services which they are looking for. In order to do this it is often necessary for us to provide this information to other companies which supply these services or products, but we always ensure that these companies are reputable ones which will treat your data as carefully as we do ourselves. A full declaration of the companies that we deal with in this manner is present on our website.
Anyone submitting information to us that knowledge is that we will be doing this, and that we have therefore permission to do so.
Exceptions to this
There are occasions when we are obliged to provide information to other persons, notwithstanding the above statement. These include, but are not limited to, the following situations:
One) where we feel that not doing so could cause harm to our visitor or to any other person
Two) when we are under a legal obligation to do so, in order to frustrate fraudulent or other criminal activities.
What can happen to your data
All data which we hold is subject to strict regulation and, subject to the exceptions listed above, will only be used to provide the products or services which had been requested. There may be times however when this information is cross checked against other information in a database, in order to confirm the validity of the data. This may be done by a not – four – profit organisation known as Insurance Database Services Ltd, which assists the insurance industry in minimising false claims and fraudulent activities. You can find more details of this at https://www. insurancedatabases.co.uk.
Accessing your personal data
Under normal circumstances we do not store any personal data about our visitors. Where we do have personal information, such as copies of any correspondence with you, this information is kept in a secure manner and is not the disclosure to any other person, unless we are legally obliged to do so. Under the Data Protection Act however you are entitled to view any data that we hold on you, if it exists. Please use our contact form to inform us of any requests you wish to make in this way. Please note that the rules of the Data Protection Act allow for a small charge to be made in respect of such requests.
This policy may change from time to time, and so you should check it, at each visit, in order to ensure that it is still acceptable to you.
