Privacy Policy



One of the biggest changes to UK data privacy law comes into effect on 25 May 2018. The General Data Protection Regulation, also known as GDPR, means that you’ll have more control over how your data is used and it ensure that organisations protect your personal data better.

To reflect these changes and new obligations, we’ve updated our privacy notice which now tells you what we do with your personal data, how it’s used and your rights as an individual under the new law.

The new privacy policy notice is available below or you can contact us after that date and we’ll send you a copy of it.
