Data collection

We only collect identifiable personal data or information that is specifically and voluntarily provided by a visitor to our site. For example, a visitor to our site may choose to provide information such as name, title, office address, office email address and telephone number in order to:

▪ register for certain areas of the site;
▪ contact us for further information;
▪ participate in “join our mailing list” initiatives

Visitors are also able to send email to us through the site. Their messages will contain the user’s contact name and email address, as well as any additional information the user may wish to include in the message.

Use of data

When a visitor provides personal data to us, we use it solely for the purposes for which it was provided to us as stated at the point of collection (or as is obvious from the context of collection). Examples of the types of use are given in the ‘data collection’ section above.

Our websites do not collect or compile personally identifying information for dissemination or sale to outside parties for consumer marketing purposes, or host mailings on behalf of third parties.
