Information we collect from visitors
You will know when we are collecting your personal information as we will ask you for it and you will choose to provide it or not. It is only impersonal information that may be collected automatically e.g. the person connecting is based in the UK, the type of browser that is being used.
We collect several kinds of information from visitors to www.newleaf.uk.com; what we collect is dependent on the part of the site being visited, e.g. registering for an event, training, feedback, e-mail enquiries, or participating in another site feature.
By participating in these features we may ask you for your name, e-mail address, postal address, postcode, daytime and/or mobile phone number.
We use website tracking software to get useful statistics about online visits, but this is not personal, by this we mean that you personally (who you are) could not be tracked by it.
We would never use information collected from you and which identifies you, without first seeking your express permission to do so, i.e. what information and how we would like to use it.
