The information that we collect and how we use it
Below are some examples of when we might request your information and how we will use it.
We have a weekly roundup that keep readers up-to-date with our latest posts. If you would like to subscribe, we will require your email address so that we can send the newsletter to you. We may also ask you to provide other information about yourself, such as your name, age, sex and location so that we can personalise your newsletter.
We occasionally run competitions and prize draws and, in addition to your answer or entry, we will require you to send us certain information, such as your name and email address. We will only use this information to administer the promotion and for any other purpose to which you consented when you entered.
