We recognise that the lawful and correct treatment of personal data is very important to successful operations and to maintaining our customer's confidence in ourselves.
Any personal data which we collect, record or use in any way whether it is held on paper, on computer or other media will have appropriate safeguards applied to it to ensure that we comply with the Data Protection Act 1998.

Our purpose for holding personal data and a general description of the categories of people and organisations to which we may disclose it are listed in the Data Protection register. We do not disclose information to any third party unless we believe it is lawful to do so. Customers may inspect this or obtain a copy from the Information Commissioner's Office. In order to meet the requirements of the principles, we will:
When we collect any personal data from a customer, we will inform the customer why we are collecting the data and what we intend to use it for.
