Who has access to your information?

Or I may transfer your information if we are under a duty to disclose or share your data to comply with any legal obligation or to enforce or apply my terms of use or to protect the rights, property or safety of our supporters and customers. However, I will take steps with the aim of ensuring that I continue to protect your privacy rights.

Right to erasure

Visitors/users of the site should have the ability to have all records of their data held by a business where there is no legitimate reason for that business to maintain that reason; this includes where GDPR is super-ceded by other laws governing the details obtained.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give me personal information, I take steps to ensure I treat it securely.

Any non-sensitive details (your email address etc,) are transmitted over the Internet, they can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while I strive to protect your personal information, I cannot ensure the security of any information you send to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once I receive your information, I make my best effort to ensure its security on my systems.

Links to other websites

My website may contain links to other sites run by other organisations. This privacy policy applies only to my website, so I encourage you to read the privacy statements on the other websites you visit. I cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other sites even if you access them using links from my website.

Also, if you linked to my website from a third party site, I cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third party site.

Transferring your information outside of Europe

As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information that you provide to me may be transferred to countries outside the European Union (“EU”). By way of example, this may happen if any of my servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EU. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. If I transfer your information outside of the EU in this way, I will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are made with the aim of making sure that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy.

If you use our services while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU to provide you with those services.
