Privacy policy

I am committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data I collect from you, or that you provide to me, will be processed. Please read the following carefully to understand my views and practices regarding your personal data and how I will treat it.

Information I may collect from you

I may collect and process the following data about you:

IP addresses and cookies

I may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

For the same reason, I may obtain information about your general internet usage by using a cookie file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive. They help me to improve my sites and to deliver a better and more personalised service. They enable me:

You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if you select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of my site. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to my site.

Where I store your personal data

The data that I collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for me or provide a service to me. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing and processing. I will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although I will do my best to protect your personal data, I cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to my sites; any transmission is at your own risk. Once I have received your information, I will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Uses made of the information

I use information held about you in the following ways:
