GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations)
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the European Council and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union.
The Regulations cover both written and computerised information and the individual’s right to see such records. It is important to note that the Regulations also cover records relating to staff and volunteers.
The Regulations also relate to visitors to our website and to the protection of their personal information.
Personal information about visitors to our site is collected only when knowingly and voluntarily submitted. For example, we may need to collect such information to provide you with further Services or to answer or forward any requests or enquiries. It is our intention that this policy will protect your personal information from being dealt with in a way that is inconsistent with applicable privacy laws in the United Kingdom.

Also, we may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires disclosure.
