More useful information to manage your marketing preferences below:

  • Postal Marketing– You can opt out of postal marketing by registering with the Mail Preference Service (MPS) at http://www.mpsonline.org.uk This is an industry wide service that is administered by the Direct Marketing Association and recognised by the Information Commissioner.
  • Telephone Marketing– You can opt out of all telemarketing activity by registering their details with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) at http://www.tpsonline.org.uk. The TPS is similar to the MPS but is administered by the Information Commissioner.
  • Email Marketing– Unlike Postal or Telephone channels, there is no industry-wide service to opt out of email marketing. Therefore, consumers should always review privacy policies and marketing opt-in check boxes when registering for services or purchasing products online. Where unwanted email marketing is received, consumers should unsubscribe or use spam filters to prevent future communications.
  • Online Advertising– Marketing data is widely used to inform the advertising that is displayed when browsing online. Whilst digital marketers generally do not know the identity of the individual viewing a page, they are able to understand their likely characteristics based on their browsing behaviour or location in order to display a more relevant advert. If you would prefer not to receive targeted advertising in this way, there are a number of options available.

How can you access the information we hold about you?

In order for us to process your request it is our responsibility to identify you and be satisfied that you are the individual whom the data relates to. You cannot make a SAR on behalf of someone else unless you have the required written authority or demonstrable Power of Attorney.

With any SAR you must include the following information –

First Name

Surname

Full Address
