We will always request explicit consent from you before instructing the payment service provider to enact such a payment.
Payment details supplied directly in person or by telephone are passed directly to our payment service provider through a physical or virtual payment terminal. Payment details are not held by us.

To obtain a copy of any information that is not provided on our website you should contact us to make that request.

Please be aware that we are not obliged by law to provide you with all personal data we hold about you, and that if we do provide you with information, the law allows us to charge for such provision if doing so incurs costs for us.

When you contact us, whether by telephone, through our website or by email, we collect the data you have given to us in order to reply with the information you need.

If we think your complaint is vexatious or without any basis, we shall not correspond with you about it.
If your complaint reasonably requires us to notify some other person, we may decide to give to that other person some of the information contained in your complaint. We do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter for our sole discretion whether we do give information, and if we do, what that information is.
We may also compile statistics showing information obtained from this source to assess the level of service we provide, but not in a way that could identify you or any other person.
If a dispute is not settled then we hope you will agree to attempt to resolve it by engaging in good faith with us in a process of mediation or arbitration.
