We use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

How long do we keep your data?
We keep your personal information as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this notice or as required by law.
How we protect your data.
Our website is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL). This is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
Online payments are made through the secure websites of our Payment Service Providers, who are PCI-DSS compliant to the highest level, ensuring that your card details are secure. We never see your full card details because you enter them directly through the Payment Service Provider websites.
