USE OF COLLECTED INFORMATION

Generally visitors are informed of the use of their personal information at the time of collection.

Normally, personal information provided by you or collected from third parties is used by us (or by any organizations who are business partners at that time with whom we share information) to respond to enquiries or to process requests.

It may also be used to provide users with additional information by post or email (where express consent is received) regarding forthcoming events, provision of products and services, to notify them of any changes to our services and to contact them with information regarding similar services which we consider may be of interest.

If you do not want us to use your data in this way, or pass your details on to third parties, please indicate this on our online registration forms where we collect your data.

Where credit decisions need to be made about you, personal information may be passed to other companies or organizations to carry out credit risk checks, check identity and prevent money laundering.

In the event that we wish to use personal information for other purposes we will inform you.

In order to process requests, respond to enquiries and (where consent has been obtained) provide you with information about other events, goods and services, your personal information may need to be passed to, stored by and/or processed by other companies that we have engaged to provide services to us, such as our website hosting company. Any such companies are contractually bound to keep such personal information secure and to use it strictly for the performance of the particular services only. They are not permitted to use your personal information for any other reason without your consent.

We may also pass or share your personal information to any member of our group although they will only use that information for the same purposes for which it was given.

Circumstances may arise where information is disclosed to a third party under a legal obligation or as a means for protecting the users’ rights.
