Types of data we collect
We collect information provided by you in order to communicate with you and/or to provide a service requested by you or your organisation.

We only collect details which are required in order to deliver a service or to provide you with details about a service which we can provide.
There will also be a cookie with a unique name (a string around 32 characters long) with a similarly unique value. This is a cookie set by the CMS our site runs on in order to allow it to track your progress through the site and is helpful to allow the site to be able to remember any settings or requests you have made.
You can block cookies by clicking on the decline button on our site's cookie notification bar. This appears at the foot of each page either as a full bar or as an icon (like the one to the right!) which can be clicked on to choose your preference.
