The new General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, changes how businesses process and handle their data.

What GDPR means for you

The websites and digital communications we all use today generate a huge amount of online data — far more than the original data protection laws from the 1990s were designed to cover.

GDPR updates personal data protection, bringing the rules up to speed with today’s increasingly digital world.

Most importantly, it changes how businesses and public sector organisations can handle the information of their customers.

What GDPR means for us

We take GDPR seriously, and in recognition of this we have created a new website privacy policy document outlining how we collect and use your personal data.

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

For example, we may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data that could include anything from your name and email address to your home contact number, internet protocol (IP address) and website log-in.

We may also hold Aggregated Data from our website visitors. This is anonymised data which tells us how people are browsing and using our website, helping us to improve and optimise our web pages and navigation for future visitors.

GDPR and your personal data

You can be assured that we have been reviewing data management throughout our business and are working to ensure all customer information is managed appropriately and securely, and only retained for as long as we have a legitimate reason to hold it.

You can find out more about our updated actions to comply with GDPR on the use and storage of personal data under our Privacy Policy.

We have also updated our Terms & Conditions to reflect the new GDPR.

Going forward, we will continue to improve practices to assure good data management.
