What personal data we collect and why we collect it

This policy governs the data gathered by or supplied to this Website and outlines the obligations & requirements of the users, the Website and Website Owners [FOLIO400 LIMITED].

For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 and EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the data controller, in relation to data gathered via this website, is FOLIO400 LIMITED.

This policy may be amended or added to as and where necessary. We, the website owners, pledge to observe our lawful obligations in relation to the storage and processing of personal data held by us and will remain within the confines otherwise agreed by you or as we are otherwise permitted to do in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Contact Forms / Personal Data

Users providing their personal details via the contact form on this site are agreeing to the processing of their data to achieve the stated goal or purpose of their contact. This may require the sharing of data with external parties where outside services are required to fulfil that objective.

Owing to the global nature of the internet infrastructure, the information you provide may be transferred and stored on servers within countries outside the European Economic Area that do not have similar protection in place regarding your personal data and its use as set out in this policy. By submitting your information you consent to these transfers.

You are entitled to ask us (by letter or e-mail) what personal details of yours are being held or processed, for what purpose and to whom they may be or have been disclosed. Your personal data will be retained until such time as it is no longer required or deemed necessary. Should you wish to submit a “request to be forgotten”, please email hello@ where your request will be dealt with. 


A number of key site elements require the use of cookies in order to function. No identifiable personal data is stored within these temporary cookies.
