Why we need this data and what do we do with it?
When you submit an enquiry or place an order through our website we may ask for your name, address and e-mail address so we can administer the request.

  • It is for the purposes of national security;
  • The disclosure is for the purpose of the prevention or the detection of crime, or the apprehension or prosecution of offenders;

Cookies
A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information.

Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, i.e. forcing you to log in every time.
