What information do we collect about you?
We collect information when you voluntarily complete our contact form or provide feedback.
As with most websites, the WRL website maintains an activity log which records your IP address and other information which may or may not be supplied by your browser. This includes the type and version of the browser you are using, the operating system you use, the screen resolution at which you viewed the site and the address of third party site if you navigated to our site via a link.
This information is used solely to help us improve our delivery of the services on the site.
How will we use the information about you?
We collect information about you to email you about WRL activities and developments we think may be of interest to you. You have the right at any time to stop us from contacting you; if you no longer wish to be contacted by us, please click here.
You do not need to supply any personal information in order to view this website. Information volunteered via online forms e.g the sign up function for our mailing list will not be used for any purpose other than that for which it was supplied, nor will it ever be passed on to third parties.
