Direct Marketing Materials

We may send you direct marketing communication and information about our products and services that we consider may be of interest to you.  If you indicate a preference for a method of communication, we will endeavour to use that method whenever practical to do so.  In addition, at any time you may opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us by contacting us (see details below) and we will ensure that your name is removed from our mailing list.

How Can You Access And Correct Your Information?

You may request access to your personal information we hold about you at any time by contacting us (see details below).  Where we hold information that you are entitled to access, we will try to provide you with suitable means of accessing it (by mailing or emailing it to you).

There may be instances where we cannot grant you access to the personal information we hold.  For example, we may need to refuse access if granting access would interfere with the privacy of others or if it would result in a breach of confidentiality.  If that happens we will give you written reasons for any refusal.

If you believe that personal information we hold about you is incorrect, incomplete or inaccurate, then you may request us to amend it.  We will consider if the information requires amendment.  If we do not agree that there are grounds for amendment then we will add a note to the personal information stating that you disagree with it.

What Is The Process For Complaining About A Breach Of Privacy?

If you believe that your privacy has been breached, please contact us, in writing, and provide details of the incident so that we can investigate it.  We will deal with the complaint in accordance with our then current Complaints Handling Procedure.


As our Website is linked to the Internet and the internet is inherently insecure we cannot provide any assurance regarding the security of transmission of information you communicate to us online.  We also cannot guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the internet.  Accordingly, any personal information or other information which you transmit to us online is transmitted at your own risk.
