All “personal data” (deemed to be any information that may be used to identify, contact or find a person to whom such information relates) that we collect and maintain is subject to this Data Privacy Policy as amended from time to time.

The same applies in the event that we supply you with information material at your request or if we answer your enquiries. Your data will be used by us exclusively to process your request. Your data will be treated in strictly confidence and will not be passed on to third parties.
