Website Forms

This information is stored on within our websites database for a short period of time before being sent securely a mail delivery service called Mailgun. We consider Mailgun to be a third party data processor.


If you choose to join our email newsletter, the email address that you submit to us and any other personal information supplied (such as first and last names and mailing list preferences) will be forwarded to MailChimp or Campaign Monitor who provide us with email marketing services.

We consider MailChimp and Campaign Monitor to be a third party data processors. Your email address will remain within their database for as long as we continue to use these services for email marketing or until you specifically request removal from the list.

Email Links

Should you choose to contact us using a mailto email link, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to / be processed by any of the third party data processors. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP).

The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices.
