The information we collect about you might include any of the following:

  • your name
  • your address and postcode
  • your email address
  • your home telephone number / mobile number
  • your date of birth

Your privacy is important to us and we will never release your personal data to any third party for their mailing or marketing purposes.

How will we use the data about you?
We may use your information:
