We understand the importance of keeping your personal information secure and take appropriate steps to safeguard it.
Your data is stored on a dedicated, secure cloud server hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the EU with Industry standard firewalls, anti-virus, encryption and back-up methods in place, as well as strict data handling protocols.
We always ensure only authorised persons have access to your information, which means only our approved employees and contractors, and that everyone who has access is appropriately trained in data management.
If you have an online profile for this website you are responsible for keeping your login details (email and password) confidential and we ask that you do not share your password with anyone.
No data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. So, whilst we strive to safeguard your information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you provide online and you do this at your own risk. Who has access to your information?
- Third parties who provide services for us, for example our customer support ticketing and phone line provider. We select our third-party service providers with care. We provide these third parties with the information that is necessary to provide the service and we will have an agreement in place that requires them to operate with the same care over data protection as we do
- Third parties if we run an event in conjunction with them. We will let you know how your data is used when you register for any event
- Web hosting, email hosting, analytics and search engine providers that enable us to run our community database and improve our website and its use
- Third parties in connection with restructuring or reorganisation of our operations, for example if we merge with another business. In such event, we will take steps to ensure your privacy rights will be protected by the third party
Other than this, we will not share your information with other organisations without your consent. Keeping your information up to date

Where data can be aggregated and anonymised, we might use this for research purposes without restriction. For example, we may monitor traffic patterns, site usage, response rates and data trends to help make improvement to the website software.
