Will my information be disclosed to third parties?
We may share selected information to organisations who act as ‘data processors’ on our behalf in order to provide you with our services. These functions may include direct marketing, third party review services, administration, customer care and website hosting.

These third parties have agreed to confidentiality obligations and to use any personal information we share with them or which they collect on our behalf solely for the purposes of providing their service to us.

We may also need to use your personal information to comply with a relevant legal or regulatory obligation that we have.

We will never share information about you with third parties for their own marketing purposes.

Your rights
If you have any concerns in how we use your personal information, please contact us at or by telephoning us on 01689 666 900.

You also have the right to contact the Information Commissions Office (ICO) if you have any questions about Data Protection. You can contact them using their help line 0303 123 113 or at

You may ask us in writing for a copy of the information we hold about you (for which we may charge a fee) and in some circumstances to delete, rectify, block and the information we hold about you; to complete and restrict its use, and to port it to another organisation.

You have the right to request additional information about the handling of your personal data and to object to the processing of your data in some circumstances. Where we have asked for consent to process your data, you may withdraw this consent.

We will take all necessary steps to make sure that the information we hold about you is kept secure at all times against unauthorised or unlawful loss or disclosure. We will retain it only for as long as it is needed for its original purpose or to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Any information no longer required will be deleted or disposed of confidentially and completely. We also have appropriate contractual obligations with our ‘data processors’ to ensure that they comply with the requirements of UK law. However, outside the UK, controls on data protection may not be as wide as the legal requirements in this country.
