We may collect or receive information about you from other sources, such as keeping the contact details we already hold for you accurate and up to date using publicly available sources.
When You Use Our Social Media Pages
Cookie Type. We use “session” cookies which are not permanently stored on your hard drive. Session cookies usually expire after inactivity or when you close your browser. Session cookies allow us to keep track of this data until you have completed your search or registration.
