The purpose of this Privacy Notice is to tell you about the information we collect from you when you use certain functions of our website, phone or email us or interact with us in other ways. In collecting data we are acting as a Data Controller as defined by the General Data Protection Regulation.
Who are we?

Large scale data-processors, public authorities and organisations who process specific types of sensitive data, such as criminal convictions and offences, are required to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO).
