A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser for a smoother and quicker response to open up a web page.
We may use session cookies and persistent cookies on the website. To keep track of navigation habits and to enable our site to recognise you again should you visit the site again within a certain period? This will help towards a quicker web browsing experience.
Session cookies are deleted when you close your browser while persistent cookies may be delete anytime by using the tools on your browser or until their expiry date.
We use our own web server analytics to analyse the use of this website and generate statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website.
Any of our advertisers/payment service providers e.g. Paypal may also send you cookies.
At times we may publish Google Adsense interest-based advertisements on our website. These are tailored by Google to reflect your interests. To determine your interests, Google will track your behaviour across the web using cookies. You can view, delete or add interest categories associated with your browser using Google's Ads Preference Manager, available at: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/. You can opt-out of the Adsense partner network cookie at: http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html. However, this opt-out mechanism uses a cookie, and if you clear the cookies from your browser your opt-out will not be maintained. To ensure that an opt-out is maintained in respect of a particular browser, you should use the Google browser plug-in available at: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/plugin.]
Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.
Cookies do not harm your computer and allow for a better, quicker browsing experience.
In addition, we may disclose information about you:
To the extent that we are required to do so by law;
In connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
In order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk).
To the purchaser (or prospective purchaser) of any business or asset which we are (or are contemplating) selling.
International data transfers
Information which you provide may be transferred to countries all over the world which do not have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the European Economic Areas (EEA).
In addition, personal information that you submit for publication on the website will be published on the internet and may be available, via the internet, around the world.
By submitting your personal or business details you expressly agree to such transfers of personal information.
Security of your personal data
We will take every reasonable technical and organisational precaution to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
As we do not store personal or financial information about your or your business and therefore see no need to use a SSL (secure socket layer) website.
Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
You are solely responsible for keeping your username and password to access your account area confidential. We will never contact you to ask your current user name and password.
You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you. Provision of such information may be subject to the payment of a fee (currently fixed at £10.00).
You may instruct us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes by email at any time. (In practice, you will usually either expressly agree in advance to our use of your personal data for marketing purposes, or we will provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of the use of your personal data for marketing purposes.)
Please bear in mind before choosing to opt out of any marketing that potential benefits or particular interests may be lost.
(It is much better to receive and disregard then never to receive at all!)
Third party websites
this website may contain links to other websites for which we are not responsible or which may have their own privacy policies or practices.
Please let us know if the personal information which we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated.
