This website is built using the Google Sites platform. Use of Google's products is governed by their own Terms & Conditions. To quote from Google's own GDPR statement for Google Sites:
"You're not required to seek consent for a user’s activity on Google’s sites (we obtain that ourselves when users visit our sites). We're asking only that you seek consent for your uses of our ads products on your properties. We already require that certain consents are obtained from your users in the EEA and the UK, and we're updating those requirements in line with the GDPR. We encourage you to link to this user-facing page explaining how Google manages data in its ads products. Doing so will meet the requirement of our EU user consent policy to give your users information about Google’s uses of their personal data. "

Disclosure of your information
Any information you provide to us via our Contact Us form will be stored securely in Google Drive. Google will email us to confirm the form has been used, and we can then access the information using a secure web page (https/tls).

Should we engage in a private email conversation with you as a result of your initial contact, we will use Google Mail ("GMail")
All access to GMail is via secure web pages (https/tls), and Gmail supports TLS encrypted email. We cannot guarantee if your email provider supports, implements or enforces TLS email transport, and as such we cannot guarantee the security of any details of content once email is used as a contact medium.
We do not rent, sell or share personal information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies.
We will use all reasonable efforts to ensure that your personal data is not disclosed to regional/national institutions and authorities, unless required by law or other regulations.
