Where we store your personal data

Our website does use SSL encryption when submitting your contact form information ( via automated email ) to our company administrator.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not always completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect the transmission of any personal data by using SSL encryption, we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to our site, therefore any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access and delete emails containing personal information from our mail servers on a regular basis.
To re-iterate, personal information acquired by automated email from our enquiry web forms will only be kept for the duration of fulfilling your request with us. This is never stored on our website’s servers but will temporally be stored on our email servers. This is an identical process to our users’ emailing us enquiries directly via personal email clients, in which users may have chosen or have been required to include personal contact information.
