In compliance with the Data Protection Act, your information will only be held for as long as necessary for these purposes.

We value the time you spend on our website and talking with us and as such, will not pass on any information you supply to any other parties. The College strives to take all reasonable steps to protect the data you disclose to us online but cannot guarantee its security fully.

Visitors to the site who submit information must do so in compliance with accepting the security risks, and will not hold the College responsible for any breach of security.

To provide a better service to you as a visitor to our site, where it is relevant, we will provide links to other websites which you may find useful or interesting. Responsibility for the information you provide to other such third party sites is with that site itself and not with the College.
