Your privacy is important to me

You can be assured that I take your privacy seriously and that maintaining the confidentiality of your information is important to me. Please read the following statements carefully so you understand what I am collecting and why;  and how I store and use your information.

I collect your personal information/email in order to maintain personalised communication and follow-up with you; for example:
