We do not knowingly intend to send marketing communications to children and young people. We actively encourage all our staff, whenever they are implementing new initiatives to assess whether these might be attractive to children and young people and if so, to ensure clear information is provided to try and deter children and young people from providing their personal data without parent or guardian consent.

We do not use or disclose sensitive personal data, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
