Where we store your personal data

Our website does use SSL encryption when submitting your webform information ( via automated email ) to our company administrator.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not always completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect the transmission of any personal data by using SSL encryption, we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to our site, therefore any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access and delete emails containing personal information from our mail servers on a regular basis.

This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual. We will not, and are not able to collect personal information in this way. We would obtain this anonymised information about your general internet usage by using a cookie file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer.
