We collect the personal information that you voluntarily provide when participating in activities on our website, or when you contact us to request information or services.
The personal information we collect depends on your interactions with the website, the information you request, and the features you use. This personal data consists of information actively provided by you and information that is collected automatically through the server.
We trust that the personal information you provide to us will be true, complete and accurate, and that you must notify us of any important changes. The type of personal information that you might provide us with consists of things such as:
In addition to the information that you may be asked to input manually when you visit our website, we also automatically collect certain user information (metadata) from everybody who visits, uses, or navigates our webpages. This information does not reveal your specific identity (like your name or contact information), but may include device and usage information, such as IP address, browser and device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, device name, country, location, information about how and when you use our website, and other technical information. This information is primarily required to maintain the security and operation of our website and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes.
We use your personal information for a variety of purposes, described below. We collect this personal information out of legitimate interest, primarily to gain a better understanding of who you are, but also to obtain your consent and/or compliance with our legal obligations.

We will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this notice. We will only retain your data for as long as we need it to fulfil our purposes, including any relating to legal, accounting, or supporting requirements. When we have no ongoing legitimate need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise such information, or if this is not possible, then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, despite our safeguards and efforts to secure your information, no electronic transmission over the internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers or cybercriminals or others will not gain access to or modify your information. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, transmission of personal information to and from our website is at your own risk. You should only access the website within a secure environment.

Further information regarding your rights is available from the Information Commissioners Office (ICO).
