Transferring personal data

Your data may be transferred or stored outside the EU to countries who may not have the same data protection as the EU but, if we do this, we will have an agreement with the third party who will be using an approved mechanism to keep personal data secure. This means transferring data to providers who:

  • adhere to certain agreed codes of conduct or certification approved by the European Commission or
  • the European Commission deems to have an adequate level of protection for personal data or
  • are based in the USA and part of the EU-US Privacy Shield

If one of these safeguards isn’t in place, we’ll ask for your explicit consent, which can be withdrawn at any time.


Non-personal Information

To help us effectively run our website and business, our website collects non-personal information or aggregated information (which doesn’t identify an individual) from those who use it. For example, Google Analytics collects information about our website visitors, but the information is processed so that an individual can not be identified from it because we work in accordance with Google’s guidelines, so personal data should not be used or shared with them. Website searches may be powered by third parties but are anonymised.
