This Privacy Policy explains how our website collects and stores data, sometimes via third parties, and if you’re stuck on any of the terminology you can find a short glossary at the bottom of the page.

Data Controller and Owner

Types of Data collected

Among the types of Personal Data that our website collects or stores in your web browser, by itself or through third parties, there are: Cookies, Usage data and Your Email address.

Other Personal Data collected may be described in other sections of this privacy policy or by dedicated explanation text contextually when the collection of that data occurs.

The Personal Data recorded is in some cases freely provided by the User, or otherwise collected automatically when using this website.

Any use of Cookies – or of other tracking tools – by this website or by the owners of third party services used by this website, unless stated otherwise, serve to identify Users and remember their preferences, for the purposes of a) providing the services required by the User and b) collecting usage information with which to improve the website over the longer term, for example (but not limited to) web browsers used to visit the site, what kind of device the User is browsing on (e.g. mobile, tablet, desktop) and what actions are taken on the website during a visit. Such usage information is invaluable in the ongoing development of a website, and the only personally identifiable information stored with the usage information is the user’s IP address, which does not give us the ability to identify a particular User of the site beyond their approximate geographical location.
