What Personal Data May We Collect From You?
We will not process any personal data collected through the Website unless We have first told you that We are going to do so or it is obvious how We will use it.
We will process personal data about you if you join online, update your profile, purchase something, book an event or use online tools.

We may collect information about the software on your computer (your browser version etc.) and your IP address (your connection with the internet) in order to improve your interaction with the Website and for Our records. This may happen automatically without your being aware of it.
If you become a member then We will use your personal data in other ways as well (for example, to provide you with membership services). This is explained in more detail on the membership application form.
How Will Your Personal Data Be Used?
We use personal data for the following purposes:
- To provide individuals with the services they have requested through the Website.
- For research purposes and to improve the services We offer.
- In order to comply with Our legal obligations.
- In order to protect Our contractual and other rights. For example, We may pass your details onto a third party should We believe that you have used another person's credit card fraudulently.
Disclosure of Your Personal Data
We will not sell personal data other than as part of a sale of a substantial part of our assets. We may disclose it to a prospective purchaser, but only for use in connection with that sale.
We may disclose personal data to a third party if We have a legal obligation to do so and We have not voluntarily assumed that obligation.
How Will Your Personal Data Be Stored?
All personal data that you supply Us with is stored on our secured servers. For your protection, any payment details that you provide Us with will be encrypted using SSL technology.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the internet is not completely secure. Although We will do our best to ensure that your personal data is protected, We cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Website. Any transmission of your personal data by you is therefore at your own risk. Once We have received your information, We will use strict procedures and security features to try and prevent unauthorised access.
You have a right to ask Us not to process your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
You have a right to know what personal data We hold, who We acquired it from, how We process it, the logic involved in any automatic processing, and who We disclose it to. We will charge the statutory fee for dealing with your request, and this will usually be £10.
You have a right to ask Us not to make decisions based solely on the automatic processing of your personal data if those decisions affect you to a significant degree.
You have a right to ask Us not to process your personal data in a way that is likely to cause unwarranted and substantial damage or distress.
These statutory rights are qualified by exceptions and exemptions in the legislation.
