(3) Unless you have entered into a separate agreement with us, then any personal information we hold will be used, for example, to identify you, provide services, run the website and our business efficiently or, for analysing and marketing purposes (including any third party software used). Unless we have agreed otherwise, personal information will only be used by us and our subsidiary or parent companies and selected third parties, including those who perform services for us/on our behalf.

4. Non-Personal Information

We use this aggregate information to analyse behaviour relating to our website generally. We may also share aggregate information with selected third parties, but we do not disclose your personal information.

(2) We use your IP address to help to identify you and to gather broad demographic information, help to diagnose problems with our server, and to administer the website and for security reasons, such as fraud detection.

5. Cookies

(a) As with most other websites, we do use cookies which are files that web browsers place on a computer’s hard drive which we use to
- help us to distinguish visitors and identify whether you have visited the website previously, so that we can understand your browsing habits and make the experience as meaningful to you personally as is possible and to improve the website
- deal with the administration of the website, to analyse and compile statistics about its use (e.g. how many visitors and which pages they visit) and to improve it. They are not used to read data from your hard drive, and cannot retrieve information from any other cookies created by other websites.

(b) Standing alone, cookies do not identify you personally. They merely recognise your browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself, for example by registering with us or purchasing from us, then you remain anonymous to us. Cookies come in two types: session-based and persistent:
(i) Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer
(ii) Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. They include such information as a unique identifier for your browser. We use persistent cookies that only we can read and use, to identify the fact that you are a website user or prior website user (whatever the case may be) and to track your use. We are especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information stored in persistent cookies. These cookies expire after six months.

(c) Some cookies are essential for parts of the website to operate and have already been set. You can delete and block all cookies from our website but that means that some parts of the website will not work. Users who disable their web browser’s ability to accept cookies will be able to browse our website, but will not be able to successfully and completely use our websites and services. For information on blocking cookies refer to the instructions on your Browser which is often located under the “Tools” section. Help is also available at www.allaboutcookies.org and also at

(d) You can delete any cookies on your computer by referring to the instructions for your file management software to locate the file or directory that stores cookies and delete it. Help is also available at www.allaboutcookies.org and also at
http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/SiteInformation/Cookies/DG_WP201851?CID=Central&PLA=url_mon&CRE=managing_cookies

(f) You can find information about the cookies we use at the end of this policy.

6. Third parties and Associates

(1) If you visit our website by “clicking-through” from a website operated by a third party, including one of our associates, or you have registered with that third party, then certain information about you that you have provided to them may be transmitted to us. You should review the Privacy Policy of the website from which you reached our website in order to determine what information was collected and how you agreed that the associate could use that information. We may or may not retain that information; if we do, then we will only use it in accordance with our Privacy Policy, regardless of the policy of the associate website from which you came to us.

(2) If you reach our website through third party, including one of our associates (whether or not you have registered with them), and you choose to register with us, we may be required to give the third party some or all of your registration information. We will only do so in accordance with this Policy, but we cannot control how the third party uses the information. If you have questions about a third party’s Privacy Policy, you should review their Policy before providing information to us. You can ensure that the personal information you provide to us is not shared with any third parties (except in accordance with this Policy), by visiting us directly instead of clicking-through from one of our associate.
