Research

We are always looking to improve our user experience on the website. We conduct research by sending out questionnaires from time to time by email. If you receive one you do not need to complete it if you do not want to. If at any time you wish to stop receiving research questionnaires you can reply to the email address at the bottom of the email you receive. Alternatively email us at CIL and tell us you do not want to receive any more questionnaires.

Passing information to third parties

We do not pass your details to third parties for the purposes of allowing them to market their products or service to you.

Forwarding web pages

If we provide you with the opportunity to email a web page to another person, we will need to collect your email address and the email address of those to whom you send the page. We will use the email addresses collected this way for no other purpose except to send the web page, and the addresses will be deleted once the page has been sent unless you have opted in to receive information and promotions from us as set out above using the same email address, in which case we will retain your email address for this purpose unless and until you notify us that you wish to stop receiving information.]
