This privacy & cookie policy covers all data that is shared by a visitor with us whether directly via, via email or off-line. This policy is occasionally updated by us so please do revisit from time to time.

Our privacy & cookie policy provides an explanation as to what happens to any personal data that you share with us, or that we collect from you either directly via this website, via email or via any off-line medium.

2. Use of Cookies
This site uses cookies; if you use this site, you are using cookies. Cookies are small files which are stored on the computer you are using to access this web site. Cookies are used so that your session on this web site may be smooth and continuous; they are used to store (for example) selections you have made, options you have selected, and the data you have entered on a form (in case you make an error, so you don't have to re-enter everything on the form). This site may not work correctly if you have cookies disabled. We believe our use of cookies is innocuous.

Third party sites referred to by us (eg. PayPal) may use cookies for similar purposes to ours, but we have no control over their use of cookies.

3. Use of Your Information
The information that we collect and store relating to you is primarily used to enable us to provide our services to you. In addition, we may use the information for the following purposes:

  • If you are a member to fulfil our commitments to you as a member.
  • Where you have made a Gift Aid Declaration to allow us to reclaim the appropriate taxation on your donations.

  • As required by the Data Protection Act 1998 data is retained only for the minimum length of time required to provide you with the agreed services.
  • The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk.
