How we use your personal information and how we keep it safe.

If you’re reading this page you care about how your personal information is protected. We do too. So, on this page we outline how we use your data and how we keep it safe.

You can read the policy in detail below but we’d like to share the most important points here:

  • We will only ever ask for what we really need to know.
  • We will collect and use the personal data that you share with us transparently, honestly and fairly.
  • We will always respect your choices around the data that you share with us and the communication channels that you ask us to use and you can let us know if you change your preference at any time.
  • We will put appropriate security measures in place to protect the personal data that you share.
  • We will never sell your data.

If you have any questions about anything at all related to how we use and store your personal data, please do get in touch.
