How We Use Your Information

This may include the use of targeted and remarketed social media marketing on platforms including: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Snapchat, Google and YouTube.

Please note, we will make every effort to tailor our marketing communication to your requirements and interests and we will not advertise goods and services of unrelated 3rd party companies.
Please be assured that we will not, under any circumstances, share your data with anyone for marketing purposes and you will not receive offers from other companies or organisations as a result of giving your details to us. We may need to share limited information with our service providers who help us to prepare and send you our communications or process your responses. However, we will not allow these organisations to use your data for their own purposes and will take care to ensure that they keep your data secure.
