Your right to privacy is important to us. We try hard to ensure a fair balance between your personal privacy and ensuring you obtain full value from our site and learn of things you are likely to be interested in. Read the Data Protection Policy for more information
When we ask you to provide information it is often (but not only) to enable us to enhance your site visit, or send information on something that we believe will interest you or reply to you after your visit. This would include where you subscribe to any online newsletters or provide feedback to us through a contact form or when you complete any online competition form or survey we may offer from time to time. When you register we ask you the questions set out on that page to obtain your personal information. We may use (and you consent to the use of) your personal data for future email, mailings, phone or other forms of contact, notification of new services, competitions and new versions.
