  • We may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of some or all of our business and assets to any third party or as part of any business restructuring or reorganisation, but we will take steps with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected.
  • Other than as set out above, we will not disclose any of your personal information without your permission unless we are required by law to do so (for example, if required to do so by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime).

5. Information automatically collected from your computer when using our Website

Log files/IP addresses:

  • When you visit our website our web server automatically records your IP address. This IP address is not linked to any of your personal information.
  • We may also gather other non-personal information (from which we cannot identify you) such as the type of your internet browser which we use to provide you with a more effective service.

Cookies

  • When you visit our website we may store some information (commonly known as a “cookie”) on your computer. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to your hard drive to store and sometimes track information about you. Cookies are specific to the server that created them and cannot be accessed by other servers, which means that they cannot be used to track your movements around the web. Passwords and credit card numbers are not stored in cookies. A cookie helps you get the best out of the Site and helps us to provide you with a more customised service.
  • You can block or erase cookies from your computer if you want to (your browser’s help screen or manual should tell you how to do this), but certain parts of our website are reliant on the use of cookies to operate correctly and may not work correctly if you set your browser not to accept cookies.

6. Transferring your information outside of Europe

6.1 As part of the services offered to you through our website and our membership services, the information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside of the European Union (“EU”). By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EU or one of our service providers is located in a country outside of the EU. We may also share information between group companies, which may be located in countries worldwide. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. If we transfer your information outside of the EU in this way, we will take steps with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this privacy policy.

6.2 If you use our website while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU in order to provide you with those services.
