Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data for the purposes set out above necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis.
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers.
Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, responding to your queries or complaints or sending you e-mail updates which you have subscribed to. Some of the countries to which data may be transmitted may not provide the same statutory protection for your data as your home country. By browsing this Website and communicating electronically with us you acknowledge and agree to our transferring and processing personal data in this way.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will use industry-standard methods and processes to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and industry-standard security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

This provides, among other things, that the data we hold about you should be processed lawfully and fairly. It should be accurate, relevant, and not excessive. The information should be kept up to date, where necessary, and not retained for longer than is necessary. It should be kept securely to prevent unauthorised access by other people.
