Privacy Policy

We’ve outlined how we use your data on our website below. If you’d like to see how we use your data in other ways, please see our full privacy policy.


When you visit, we use Google Analytics, a third-party service, to collect details of visitor behaviour patterns and standard internet log information. We do this to identify things such as how many people visit each part of our website, and how long they visit for. This information is processed in a way that does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

If we do collect personal data through our website, we’ll be upfront about this. We’ll make it clear when we collect personal information and we’ll explain what we intend to do with it.


You can read more about how we use cookies on our Cookies page. We use a cookies tool on our website which relies on implied consent of users. 

Security and Performance

We maintain log files, containing visitors’ IP addresses, to allow us to identify any website errors or malicious activity targeting our website. These log files are retained for up to 12 months.

We also implement security measures to identify and block any traffic that is not using the site as expected. IP addresses identified as sending malicious traffic to the website are emailed to administrators to assist in the mitigation of any attacks against the website.

Purpose and Legal Basis for Processing

The purpose for implementing all of the above is to maintain and monitor the performance of our website and to constantly look to improve the site and the services it offers to our users. The legal basis we rely on to process your personal data is article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, which allows us to process personal data when its necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests.  

What are Your Rights?

As we are processing your personal data for our legitimate interests as stated above, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data. There are legitimate reasons why we may refuse your objection, which depend on why we are processing it.

For more information on your rights, please see the ‘Your rights as an individual’ document, created by the Information Commissioner’s Office.
