Personal data that we collect about you
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).
We may collect and use different kinds of personal data about you. This may include your name, contact details and email address that you provide by contacting us, requesting information or submitting an enquiry via the website.
What we do with the information we gather

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet or email is not completely secure.

Once we have received your information, we will take appropriate measures to safeguard your personal data against loss, theft and unauthorised use, access or modification.
