What information do we collect and how do we use it?

Website Users’ Data – We do not collect any unique information about you via our website – such as your name, email address, contact details, etc – except when you specifically provide it – ie. via newsletter subscription, creating user accounts, contact forms, email contact, etc.
We do collect and hold data when you create an account, register to receive our email newsletter, or submit other online sign-up forms on our website or contact us via email.
