Privacy Policy application to the website

Internet transmission of information

Where appropriate we use secure transmission facilities. However, no transmission of information over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure and we do not warrant the security of any information transmitted to us over the Internet.


We make use of cookies on the Internet. A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on the hard disk of a user's computer so that the website can remember that user. Without cookies, websites and their servers have no memory. This means that every time a user opens a new webpage on a website, the server where that webpage is stored will treat the user as new and require logon and password. In short, a cookie facilitates a user's passage through a website.

Linked websites

This Privacy Policy does not apply to linked websites.

Access, Corrections and Further information

You have the right to request access to any personal information held by us which relates to you, unless we are permitted by law to withhold that information. Any requests for access to your personal information should be made in writing. You also have the right to request the correction of any personal information which relates to you and is inaccurate. Any corrections should be advised to us in writing.
