Details You Volunteer to Us
We may invite you to supply details about yourself and your organisation at various
stages while you are using any of our communication facilities. For instance, we
might ask you for your name, job title, contact details or your interests when you

We might also ask you for other demographic details, your preferences and interests
as well as other data relevant to client surveys and/or offers. We will only use
this information for the purposes we indicate (or are otherwise implied) at the
time we collect it.
However, please be aware firstly that we reserve the right to disclose any details
you provide anonymously; and secondly that some of our communication facilities
(such as our web sites or blogs) may invite you to publicly contribute to their
contents, in which case we will make you aware prior to submission what will be
made public and attributable to you.
If we intend to use your details for more general purposes, we will make it clear
at the time of entry and provide you with an appropriate mechanism to withdraw your
consent. Alternatively, you can always contact us about your preferences, which

Details We Automatically Collect
We will collect information about you as you use our communication facilities. We
will only use these details for direct marketing purposes when you have expressly
given your consent. We will also use these details for administrative purposes.
For web-based systems, we will automatically log your Internet Protocol (IP)
address, browser details and the resources you access, amongst other usage statistics.
We use this information to improve the navigation, layout and content of these facilities
as well as the services we offer you.
We also log the subject, sender and recipient details of every email we handle as
well as the IP address of those machines that our systems communicate with, together
with other technical data. We use this information for administrative purposes only.
Other Internet based systems (such as newsgroups) also collect similar data, which
again we only use for administrative purposes.
Our electronic marketing (emarketing) is permission based. If you receive an electronic
marketing message from us then our records indicate that (a) you have expressly
shared your address for the purpose of receiving information in the future (ie:
you have "opted-in"); or (b) you are a client or otherwise have an existing relationship
with us. We respect your time and attention by controlling the frequency of our
mailings. We also do not use any form of web beacon in our marketing messages. Electronic
marketing includes any form of marketing using electronic communication such as
email, fax or SMS text.

us then please contact us. If the message was received by email then please forward
a copy of that email with your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org for review.
We will not share the details you provide to us or we collect about you with any
other party without your express consent, except with those who work directly for
us and who agree to uphold your confidentiality; or with those agencies we are legally
obliged to do so.
We will keep your personal details within the United Kingdom and will not transfer
them to any other country except with your prior and express consent.
However, please understand that any information you provide to us over the Internet
can be routed outside the European Economic Area as it passes between you and our
computers. This is intrinsic to the way the Internet works and is beyond our control.
