Data Protection

1. Privacy Statement

We are aware that you may have concerns over disclosing information about yourself to us.

This Privacy Statement explains, amongst other things, what information we collect about you on this website and the reasons for this.


Our primary aim in collecting personal information is to provide you with a customised experience on our website (aiming to show you information that is relevant to you) and to provide you with information you have asked for.

We also collect information for statistical purposes and, where agreed by you, to send a newsletter containing our up to date activities, news and information.

Information we collect

  • Log file information, including IP addresses. You can visit public areas of the site without identifying yourself or providing any personal information
  • Tracking IP addresses (the computer’s internet address)
  • Monitoring how long a user spends on the site and which pages he/she visits – this helps us evaluate the use of different parts of the website

As a rule, we don’t link IP addresses to anything that can identify you personally, ensuring you can remain anonymous. Nevertheless, we will attempt to use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to protect our services and other users.

Personal data

Any personal data relating to you gathered by us in the member registration process or during your use of the website will be recorded and only be used in accordance with our Data Protection Policy.

The website uses a registration form to enable you to contribute to member forums, upload and edit website content and to access member only information.

In some cases you will need to provide us with information such as your name, e-mail address and password.

Any personal data we collect during newsletter subscription, registration or otherwise is designed to allow us to:

  • personalise the site for you
  • give you access to, and to provide you with, the right kinds of information related to your enquiry
  • enable us to compile statistical information for regulatory or business purposes
  • send, or call you about our activities and projects that may be of interest to you. (We will only provide you with such marketing information with your prior agreement.)

If you register, request further information or contact us we may keep a record of that correspondence and incorporate the information it contains into our database(s), which we will keep secure in accordance with the requirements of the Data Protection Act.

We will not transfer your personal data to any third parties unless:

  • we have your consent to do so
  • the third party is our subcontractor or a member of our group of companies, who is processing personal data on our behalf securely and in accordance with our instructions or
  • it is otherwise authorised under the Data Protection Act

Internet security

Access to certain areas of the site is limited to specific registered user groups only. Registering as a member is restricted; we will verify your status before granting a user account of this type. If your status changes then your user account may be withdrawn or downgraded to ‘general visitor’ without further notice.

Whilst we do not directly track or record your usage of this website, in the event that we become aware that site security has been compromised as a result of external activity (including but not limited to external security attacks) we shall take reasonable measures which we deem appropriate. This includes but is not limited to internal investigation and reporting, and notification to and cooperation with law enforcement authorities.

This privacy policy may not apply to you if we believe you are misusing the website or if we are required to disclose information by a court of law or other relevant body.

Third party sites

Please be aware that some of the websites to which we provide links may collect personally identifiable information about you. We do not control these sites and are not responsible for the content or practices of third party websites. This privacy policy does not cover such sites.
