Why we have a website use policy

We’re proud of our business, our clients and other businesses we engage with, so we use our site to share information about them. This policy sets out the terms which apply when you browse, link to or from, or otherwise interact with our site in any way.

Obvious things that we don’t allow on our website

That said, if we find out there’s been a breach of this policy then we’ll treat that seriously and take any action that we feel is appropriate or as required by law. We don’t know in advance what this action will be, but it could involve:
