Third Party Service Providers working on my behalf: I may pass your information to our third party service providers, agents subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on my behalf. However, when I use third party service providers, I disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and I have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please be reassured that I will not release your information to third parties for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested me to do so, or I am required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

When you give me personal information, I take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive / personal information is encrypted and protected with 128 Bit encryption software on SSL. SSL means that the web pages on my site that are served up securely using 'https://'. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear on the bottom of web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, or the words "Secure" will appear next to the address bar in a web browser such as Google Chrome.
Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are sometimes transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while I strive to protect your personal information, I cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to me, and you do so at your own risk. Once I receive your information, I make the very best effort to ensure its security on my systems.
In addition, if you linked to my website from a third party site, I cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third party site.
I am concerned to protect the privacy of children aged 16 or under. If you are aged 16 or under‚ please get your parent/guardian's permission beforehand whenever you provide me with personal information.
As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you provide to me may be transferred to countries outside the European Union (“EU”). By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EU. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you’re agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. If I transfer your information outside of the EU in this way, I will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy.
If you use my services while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU in order to provide you with those services.
I keep this Policy under regular review. This Policy was last updated in September 2019.
