In collating any information we remain mindful of, and respect the rights of individuals. Our business primarily trades with other businesses and has little requirement to collect and store information of a personal nature.

We at all times we seek to meet the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) as enacted within the UK and on demand will share any information we have on individuals, with those individuals, and will remove or correct any data in a timely manner where required to do so as set-out below. Specifically, we act as “Data Controller” in respect of the information gathered and processed by this website.
