  1. Automatic collection of information

We may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us.  For example, like many web sites, we may use “cookies”.  We also collect information on the type of browser and computer you use for statistical purposes, but this information is never linked to your personal details.

  1. Information from other sources

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive.  Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site.  Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual.  The web application can tailor its operations to your needs,

likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used.  This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs.  We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not.  A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies.  Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

What do we do with your personal information?

We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:

  • internal record keeping
  • we may use the information to improve our products and services
  • we may periodically send promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided
  • from time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes – by email, phone, fax or mail.
  • we may use the information to customise the website according to your interests

Do we share your personal information?

We do not share any information we collect about you.  We share customer information only with our distribution agent to enable them to provide a fulfilment service.  They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Disclosure of your information

We may disclose information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is:

  • reasonably necessary to comply with the law
  • to enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions
  • to protect our rights and those of our users

Where there are links on our site to other sites, the content of those linked sites is not covered by this privacy policy.  These other sites will have separate privacy and data collection practices.  We accept no responsibility or liability for such policies.  Links to

other sites are provided by us for information only and in good faith.  We accept no responsibility or liability for any content, advertisement, product or other materials on or available from such sites.

How secure is my personal information?

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure.  In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.  You should protect against unauthorised access to your own computer.  It is important to sign

off when you finish using a shared computer.

What options do I have?

As discussed above, you can always opt not to provide information, even though it might be needed to communicate with you.  You can add or update certain information such as your name, address and other contact details.  If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please contact info@wmfn.org.uk.  If you do not want to receive Terms and Conditions and other legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Policy, these notices will still govern your use of this site and it is your responsibility to review them for changes.
