Receiving our e-newsletters

If I opt in to receive emails, will you share my contact details with other organisations?

No, we never share with or sell your personal data to other organisations.

If I opt in to receive emails will you use my information in any other way?

No, we will only use your information for the purpose/s you have agreed to. When you sign up to receive marketing from us, you choose what you'd like to receive from us.

What data do you collect when I sign up for an email and opt in to receive marketing?

We take your name and your email address. By giving us your name you allow us to personalise emails.

If I opt in, can I opt out again at a later date?

Yes, you can unsubscribe at any time you like. Simply click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email or newsletter.

Why do I need to opt in to receive emails?

A law called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on 25 May 2018. GDPR is designed to make it simpler for people to control how companies use their personal details.

GDPR applies to all organisations located within the EU. It will continue to apply after the UK leaves the EU.

This means we cannot send you marketing emails unless you choose to receive them.
