The data we collect

Neither we nor our agencies will collect personal information about individuals, except where it's specifically and knowingly provided by that individual, as described below.
  • Where we collect personal information we keep it private and securely stored. When we no longer require that information we no longer store it.
  • Information is provided to us by individuals via forms or via email and we make every effort to ensure the safe and secure submission of that information. Any individual providing personal information to us must ensure they're aware of any risks of doing so.
  • When information is provided to us it will be used as described to you at the point the information is provided by you.
  • Personal information provided to us is not shared with third parties, other than where they are acting as Data Controllers on our behalf, or where explicit consent has been provided by the individual providing the information.  

Sign up for updates

From time-to-time we send individuals who have signed up to receive updates from us an email. This email will contain information about BWC and about the services we offer. We'll always offer you the opportunity to unsubscribe from receiving further updates from us at the point that you receive the email. You can also contact us and ask to be removed from any such subscriptions and to cease sending you further emails.
The email we send you will track certain information about your interaction with that email. For example, if you opened it, if you deleted it, if you forwarded it, if you clicked on a link within it.

Links to other sites

This website contains links to third-party websites which are outside our control and which are not covered by this privacy policy. Whilst we've taken great care to check the quality and reliability of the sites that we link to, we cannot be held responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. We encourage you to check the privacy statement of each website you visit where your personal information is collected.

We offer our visitors the opportunity to share certain content from our site to a range of social media platforms, for example, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. We have no control over the privacy policies of these providers, and we recommend you read these. 

We'll record your use of social sharing to support our analysis of user behaviour so we can improve our site. We won't ask for personal information through our sharing tools and would recommend that where a visitor chooses to share information they do so wisely.
