The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
Some of the cookies we use include those for: Twitter, Google Analytics, authentication cookies when you sign into our sites, Social Sharing function cookies, the Facebook tracking pixel and cookies which identify your unique session on a website. We use Google Analytics to monitor traffic levels, search queries and visits to this website.

Our Legitimate Interests and the Impact on Processing Your Data
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights under data protection laws.
“Legitimate Interests” means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best services and the best and most secure experience. For example, we have an interest in making sure our marketing is relevant to you, so we may process your information to send you marketing that is tailored to your interests.
This can also apply to processing that is in your interests as well. For example, we may process your information to protect you against fraud when transacting on our website, and to ensure our websites and systems are secure.
Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
Responsibilities and Security
The person responsible for making sure we comply with the Data Protection Act is Ann Dowdeswell who has been trained in how to handle personal information.
We are committed to ensuring your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
When collecting personal information, we tell people how we will use it.
We keep records of people’s personal information up to date and don’t keep it longer than necessary.
We hold all personal data safe and secure, password protected at all times and only shared with the minimum amount of people working for the organisation who need to see it, for the duration they need to have access.
Controlling your personal information
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. We may use your personal information to send you promotional information about third parties which we think you may find interesting if you tell us that you wish this to happen.
