All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Unfortunately the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal data we cannot guarantee the security of data that you transmit to our site. Any transmission is therefore at your own risk. Once we have received your information we will use internal procedures and security to try to prevent unauthorised access.
We also keep your information confidential. The internal procedures of the A E Yates Group cover the storage, access and disclosure of your information.
How we use your information
We use information held about you in the following ways:
- To provide you with information or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes
- To carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us
We may also use your data to provide you with information about services which may be of interest to you and we may contact you about these by email or telephone.

- In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.
- If the A E Yates Group or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets.
