We may collect and store personal information (such as name and other contact details) that you choose to provide to us through the Site or when you contact us.  The types of personal information we collect may include your name, phone number, and email address.

Automated Collection of Data

When you use the Site, we may obtain certain information by automated means, such as browser cookies, device identifiers, server logs, and other technologies. The information we obtain in this manner may include your device IP address, domain name, identifiers associated with your devices, device and operating system type and characteristics, web browser characteristics, language preferences, clickstream data, your interactions with the Site (such as the web pages you visit, links you click, videos you watch and features you use), the pages that led or referred you to the Site, dates and times of access to the Site, geolocation information, and other information about your use of the Site.

A cookie is a piece of text information that websites send to your device when you visit the website to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. Cookie technology holds information a website needs for security purposes or to personalize a visitor’s experience. Only the information that you provide, or the choices you make while visiting a website, can be stored in a cookie. Allowing a website to create a cookie does not give that or any other site access to the rest of your computer and only the site that created the cookie can interpret it.  You may adjust your browser settings to refuse or limit cookies, but if you do, certain features of the Site may be limited or not work at all. To learn more about cookies, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

These technologies help us (1) track and understand how you use the Site; (2) measure the usability of the Site; (3) understand the effectiveness of our communications; and (4) otherwise manage and enhance the functionality of the Site.

By accessing or using our Services, you consent to the automated collection of data as described in this Privacy Policy.

Third-Party Web Analytics Services

On the Site, we may use third-party online analytics services, such as those of Google Analytics. The service providers that administer these analytics services use automated technologies to collect data (such as email address, IP addresses, cookies and other device identifiers) to evaluate, for example, use of the Site and to diagnose technical issues. To learn more about Google Analytics, please visit www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.  You may opt out of Google Analytics by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl+en=GB.

  • market our services to you;
  • respond to your requests and inquiries;
  • operate, evaluate and improve our business;
  • protect against, identify and prevent fraud and other criminal activity, claims and other liabilities; and
  • comply with and enforce applicable legal requirements and relevant industry regulations.

We also may use the information we obtain in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection or otherwise with your consent. We may combine information we obtain about you (such as through the Site or from third parties) for the purposes described above.

Information Sharing

We do not sell, share, or disclose your nonpublic personal information to unaffiliated third-party marketing companies.  We may share your personal information with our service providers who perform services on our behalf and are contractually obligated to keep your information confidential.
