We will only use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information or services you have requested. Please remember that email is not necessarily secure and, as such, you should never send sensitive information - such as credit card details - to us by email. We will also never ask you to do this. Instead, you can call us on 01242 242 505.

We collect additional information from you in two main ways:

Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target advertising based on your location and/or browsing habits.

Cookies are tiny text files stored on your computer when you visit a website. They can be useful in lots of different ways, such as storing your preferences and generally improving your experience of that website. Without cookies, each time you visit a new page, the website will think you are a new visitor. For example, if you are logged in, you will need to log in again each time you move to a new page on that website because the website will not 'remember' you.
