Contact Information and Correspondence
If you contact us by email or via an online form (which is delivered via email) this communication is archived by our email service provider or in our own system as a record of correspondence. For security reasons we record the IP address of online form users, this is necessary in case of unauthorised correspondence being made, to identify the sender.

Publication on the website
If you request a listing, advertisement, article or other item to be published we may include a website link, email details or telephone number at our discretion. It is our general practice to check with the requestor regarding errors or amendments upon publication.
If you request publicity for an item or event for one of our websites at our discretion we may also include it on one or more of our other websites. General practice would be to inform the requestor of this and ask for all items to be checked for errors or amendments.
If we voluntarily include a listing (at our discretion) this will only contain information, website links, email addresses or telephone numbers that are already in the public domain (generally taken from the organisations own website)
