The Website is operated by Taylor & Francis Group (a trading division of Informa UK Limited) ("our", "we" or "us").

Use of Personal Data

Any Personal Data that you give us will be treated with the utmost care and security. It will not be used in ways to which you have not consented (either under this privacy policy or otherwise).

The Personal Data we collect is used to provide you with the service that you have requested or to respond to an enquiry that you have made. We use certain third party service providers to assist us in providing these services to you, for example web casting and hosting.

If you register to receive newsletters, subscriptions, offers or other marketing emails from us, we will use your Personal Data to send you these emails. We will always give you an opportunity to opt out of future marketing emails. Information on how to opt out will be set out on the Website when you register, and on every marketing email we send to you. The information collected from this Website will be stored in line with the company's data retention policy.

We use a number of technologies and operational procedures to protect data submitted to us by you. Physical security of data on our equipment is provided by a combination of firewalls and password protection. However, whilst we use all reasonable measures we cannot guarantee the security of your data as we do not have control of the internet.

We may also pass or sell your Personal Data outside our corporate group to third parties in the event that we sell the whole or part of our business.

In some circumstances, we may have to disclose your Personal Data by law, because a court or the police or other law enforcement agency has asked us for it.
