Privacy StatementPublished 07/17/2012 09:14:30 AM
The GMP Web site does not store or capture personal information, unless voluntarily offered (for example via feedback and other information submission forms or e-mail), but merely logs the user's IP address which is automatically recognised by the Web server.
Where the provision of personal data is required to enable us to provide a specific service to the user the details collected will only be used for the stated purpose.
Certain sections of this site seek personal information on a voluntary basis; for example, to give feedback on our website. The provision of this information is optional and this will be made clear at the start of each relevant section, as will the intended use of any such information provided.
As a word of caution, children under 16 years of age should not submit any information to any website without the consent of a parent or carer.
