How we receive the information
The information that we hold may be supplied by you directly to us by telephone, in person or via e-mail. We may also have information that has been supplied to us by one of our business partners for marketing purposes. We class this as being ‘personally identifiable information’, which means it can be used to identify you, personally. This includes our collation of IP addresses, which can be defined as being a unique string of numbers separated by full stops that identifies a person’s computer. We use IP addresses to gather statistical information and to track visitor behaviour on our website. This allows us to retarget people through other forms of online advertising and to provide our website visitors with the most relevant sources of information that we can. We also collect some ‘non-personally identifiable information’, which is data that relates to you but which does not identify you personally.
