We will never collect sensitive information about you (that is, information concerning your religion, beliefs, criminal record, health or sexuality) without your explicit consent.

- to process any request for advice or information;

Storing Your Information
We store your personal details in secure databases on our computers in the UK and the information can only be accessed by or given to our staff working within the UK.
Unfortunately, as we all know, submitting information through the internet or by email is not completely secure and should not be used to send confidential or sensitive information, selfies or emails that you wouldn’t want the national newspapers to publish. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website or by email.
It’s probably worth us saying this again, because it’s very important – Please be aware that any information that you submit to our website or by email is done so at your own risk.
Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. You accept the inherent security risks of providing information and dealing on-line over the internet and will not hold us responsible for any breach of security unless this is due to our negligence or wilful default.
You have the right to receive information about the personal data (as defined in the Data Protection Act 1998) we maintain about you. If you want to access your information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and, after we have confirmed your identity, we will provide the information. We may charge you a fee of up to £10 to cover our costs of providing the information.
If you believe that the information that we hold about you is inaccurate or if you wish us to stop processing your information for any particular purpose or at all please contact us at email@example.com.
