The type and amount of information that we collect depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, we collect information only to the extent necessary to fulfil the purpose of your interaction with us. No visitor to our website is required to provide us with personally identifying information and is entitled to refuse to supply personally-identifying information at any time on the understanding that any such refusal may prevent them from fully engaging in website-related activities.

from time to time we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, for example by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website

​7.  How we store your information

Your information is securely stored in encrypted, electronic format. We use leading technologies such as (but not limited to) fire walls and server authentication to protect the security of your Personal and Technical information.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
