Privacy Policy

Data Protection is governed by a set of rules called the General Data Protection Regulations which came into force on the 25th May 2018. These replace the Data Protection Act of 1998 and apply to all citizens of the EU. Under these regulations all individuals in the EU have rights regarding the way that businesses collect and use your data. You can find out more from the Information Commissioner’s Office here.
