We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.

Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
We will only store or transfer your personal data within the UK. This means that it will be fully protected under the Data Protection Legislation.

9.1 In addition to your rights under the Data Protection Legislation, set out in Part 3, when you submit personal data via our site, you may be given options to restrict our use of your personal data.

9.2 You may also wish to sign up to one or more of the preference services operating in the UK: The Telephone Preference Service (“the TPS”), the Corporate Telephone Preference Service (“the CTPS”), and the Mailing Preference Service (“the MPS”).
