Should you send us an email via our contact form, your name, email address and message will be emailed to us, as you would expect. This information is kept private.  We will store this information within our own email system so that we are able to respond to you as you intended.

Should you comment on a blog post or web page on this site, then your name, email address, IP address and message will be stored in our website database. This makes your name, website address and comment (but not your email address) viewable by the general public on the website.

Most websites you visit will use ‘cookies’ in order to improve your user experience by enabling the website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket.

The SNLA website uses cookies to allow the site to function normally and to improve your visitor’s experience.  If you don’t want to receive cookies, you can modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set.

If you wish to restrict or block web browser cookies which are set on your device then you can do this through your browser settings; the Help function within your browser should tell you how. Alternatively, you may wish to visit, which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of desktop browsers.

Should you disable cookies however, the SNLA website may not work as you expect.  You may not be able to buy our products, or to leave comments.

It’s worth remembering that the information gathered by cookies is “aggregate data” and cannot identify you as an individual, so your browsing experience is completely anonymous to you as an individual.

Who is collecting this aggregate information?
