Your personal data – what is it?
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person;
In other words, it is any data that can lead to the identification of specific (living) person. It can be as obviously identifiable data such as a name, but it can also be a combination of "innocent" data such as age, height/weight, wealth, job position, company, city, etc. as when combined can allow for idenitifcation of a person.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small files which are stored on a user's computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next
Cookies are a convenient way to carry information from one session on a website to another, or between sessions on related websites, without having to burden a server machine with massive amounts of data storage. Storing the data on the server without using cookies would also be problematic because it would be difficult to retrieve a particular user's information without requiring a login on each visit to the website.
If there is a large amount of information to store, then a cookie can simply be used as a means to identify a given user so that further related information can be looked up on a server-side database. For example the first time a user visits a site they may choose a username which is stored in the cookie, and then provide data such as password, name, address, preferred font size, page layout, etc. - this information would all be stored on the database using the username as a key. Subsequently when the site is revisited the server will read the cookie to find the username, and then retrieve all the user's information from the database without it having to be re-entered.
In accordance with GDPR, any information you have submitted to this website via one of the various forms can be deleted dynamically by yourself. When submitting the data to us you will have received a notification email with a 'Delete this information' link at the bottom - simply click on that link to remove the stored data for that unique submission.
You can request a report of the personal data we hold on you at any time and you can also request to have this data deleted (please see the options below).
