Our Legal Basis to process
The personal data that is used is limited to the information we need and is processed mainly for the purposes of our legitimate interests and the performance of services to provide you with the information or services you have enquired about.
Where it is appropriate or necessary, we will seek your consent for the processing of data such as certain cookies or where the processing activity is not part of the agreed services.
Cookies are small files of letters or numbers downloaded onto a device when users access websites. They are widely used to make websites work, for example to make the videos play, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide service information to the owners of the site.
Gathering information on how a website performs is important for all businesses – the information is critical to understanding how a website is functioning, of the articles and pages that a visitor uses the most and ultimately how the visitor experience can be improved. Many companies will use third party organisations to generate this information, and the data that is collected will be shared with both the website owner and the organisation providing the website analytics, with the analytics provider then using the information for their own data mining purposes. This information is frequently transferred outside of the UK and the European Union.
Some of the cookies we use will need your permission, by way of ‘Consent’, to allow us to do this. Other cookies, (usually session cookies) are essential, and do not require your Consent. However, regardless of whether we need your Consent or not, we will inform you if we are using them, by including information within this Policy. Cookies, and any similar technologies change over time, so please refer to this Policy at regular intervals to ensure you remain aware of how we use them.

By using cookies, we can tailor the adverts that you see, and we can understand the webpages you may be most interested in, so your browsing experience is better for you.
