How we protect your information

Grandad Jack makes sure that all personal data is well looked after and we always take reasonable steps to ensure that all data is treated securely and in accordance with all relevant laws. The information you provide to us will usually be stored and processed on servers based within the United Kingdom but you agree that we may store the data on carefully selected portable devices, in paper files, and to transfer data abroad.

Once we have received your personal data we will use all our powers and security features to try and prevent any unauthorised access but, unfortunately, the internet is a big scary place where not everyone is nice to each other. Therefore, we have to say that whilst we will do our utmost best to protect your data, we cannot guarantee the security of any transmitted data to our site and therefore any transmission is at your own risk. Sorry.


Our Website uses “cookies”, which are small text files that are stored on your computer. Grandad Jack told me all about cookies. I told him that my favourites were white chocolate chip and ones with pink smarties. Grandad Jack told me the ones that he was talking about couldn’t be eaten! I asked him what good was that? He said that cookie files can be stored on the hard drives of computers and that they provide information about general internet usage. I don’t think they sound half as nice as my cookies. Anyway, he said that we use computer cookies to help us to improve our website and deliver a better and more personalised service.
