What information do we collect & how?   

We do not require you to provide any information to access the website content.

However, we do ask for some personal information (name, company, email address, etc) if you subscribe to receive our email newsletter. This information is not submitted over a secure connection and you should not submit the data unless you are happy to do so.

On occasion, we also offer the facility to purchase goods or services online. In this case your details are collected over a secure connection using the industry standard SSL encryption. This ensures your personal information (including credit card details) cannot be viewed by anyone else.

We do not store your credit card details on our own server; they are simply passed on to the credit card handling company using secure SSL encryption.

What do we do with the data?

We store this information for the purpose of providing you with regular email newsletters regarding industry news and events.

If you wish to be removed from the newsletter mailing list at any time in the future, simply email your request to
