How we protect your information
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. 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.
Any information that we collect on our website is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for the lock icon in the address bar of our website and looking for ‘https’ at the beginning of the address of the web page. We also protect your information offline. Any hard copy personal information is stored securely in locked drawers, filing cabinets or other appropriately locked device.
However, as the transmission of information is never 100% secure, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of the information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.
How we use and store your information
We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reasons you’ve contacted us.
We will ensure we have a legitimate reason or your explicit consent before we use your information for certain purposes such as sending you emails about our services. We may also use your information where we have a legitimate interest to contact you e.g. to contact you with a query on an invoice.
We may hold your personal information on our systems e.g. as contact details in Outlook, in our time and expenses system and on our customer relationship management system, for as long as it is necessary for the relevant activity and to meet any legal or regulatory requirements.
We are the sole owners of the information collected on our website. We only collect or have access to information that you voluntarily give us. 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.
Links to other websites
If you engage with us on social media and messaging services e.g. Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, you may give us permission to access information from these accounts. The data you give us access to will vary by the social media services you are using but will always be in line with the terms of that service.
Your rights and choices; how you can access your information

You may opt out of any future marketing contact from us at any time, whether that be by email, post, telephone or all of them. You can also restrict our use of your information in any way you request. You can do this by contacting us via our email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have given us your explicit consent to use your data, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time by emailing email@example.com. This means we will stop processing your data.
