How and why we collect your personal data
We collect personal data from when you complete forms on the Website or when you correspond with us in other ways such as by email or over the phone. Personal data is information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify you, such as your name, an ID number or an online identifier.

Where we use legitimate interest as our lawful basis to process your personal data we will ensure that our legitimate interests are proportional and do not compromise your personal data rights.
