Privacy Policy

Note: We do not pass your contact details or any other information about you as an individual to third parties of any kind (unless requested by you to do so, or unless required to do so by law), as detailed below.

This privacy policy describes how and why we obtain, store and process data which can identify you.

IMPORTANT: The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply in the UK from 25 May 2018. It will replace the 1998 Data Protection Act and introduce new rules on privacy notices, as well as processing and safeguarding personal data.

The GDPR (EU) is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. It addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

For the GDPR the data controller is Darren Moulds at Biolink Limited, Halifax Way, Pocklington, York, YO42 1NR.
