Data Collection and Use
Mendip Media Ltd. strives to meet ‘P3P’ standards (the ‘Platform for Privacy Preferences Project’) on data privacy. We are the sole owner of any information we collect. We never sell, share, or rent this information unless we first disclose the fact in this privacy statement. We collect data in several different ways.
We may collect your name and contact information (including postal & email address). At your option, we may also collect your gender and date of birth. This information is used for site customisation and contacting visitors (you may opt out of this usage). This data will be used by ourselves and our agents.
We ask for your name, postcode and email address if you subscribe to our email newsletters. We use this information to contact you about Mendip Media and our affiliates.
Send to a Friend
If you choose, we can tell a friend about our site – or even a particular page if you prefer. To do this, we need to ask for your friend’s name and email address. We shall send your friend a single email inviting them to visit the site or page you chose. We do not retain this information. Your Internet Protocol (IP) address will be included in the email headers so that the originator of the message can be identified if necessary by the recipient.
Feedback and Comments
To send us a message using our feedback forms we collect your name, email address and comments. At your option we may also collect your postal code. This data will be used by ourselves and our agents for contacting you.
Online Polls and Surveys
If you wish to participate in an online poll or survey, in addition to your answers, we collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address. This data will be used by ourselves and our agents to help validate the results and help prevent multiple entries from individuals. In addition to this a cookie may be placed on your system after participating in a poll or survey. No identifiable information will be stored in this cookie.

We take every precaution to protect your details. When you submit sensitive information via the website, it is secure both on its way to us and once we receive it.
Notification of Changes
When we collect information from you, we tell you what we intend to do with it; if we later want to use that information for a different purpose, we shall first send you an email setting out our plans – and it will be up to you whether or not we do so.
