As part of the registration process for our monthly e-newsletter and via completion of our website forms including our contact form and product quotation forms, we collect personal information including your first name, last name and email address. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about information you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain additional information; to contact you with other information relevant to the product purchase; to check our records are right and to check that you’re happy and satisfied. We treat this information as confidential and won’t share or sell it with third parties. We don't rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter and a third-party. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.
