Cookies on our websites

We may use ‘cookies’ to help customise your experience. ‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by the browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome or Safari) or by a mobile phone (e.g. Android or iPhone) on your computer or mobile device. They allow websites to store such things as user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a “memory” for the website, enabling it to recognise a user and respond appropriately.

Turning off cookies

Most browsers and phones have a way to stop accepting classes of cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. For example, cookies are needed in order to use most shopping carts, so you would not be able to buy things through websites if you turn off cookies.

Help in turning off cookies can be found in your browser or mobile phone help files or at this website: http://www.aboutcookies.org.uk/managing-cookies.

If you are concerned about third party cookies generated by advertisers from Europe, you can turn some of these off by going to the Your Online Choices site.

Where we store your personal data

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination inside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by staff operating inside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

All information which you provide to us is stored on our servers. Where you have been given (or you have chosen) a password which enables you to access parts of our website, then you are responsible for keeping that password confidential. We would ask that you not share or disclose a password with any third party. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Your rights

You have the right to ask us what information we hold about you by making a request (by email, letter or even phone). If we do hold information about you we will:

  • give you a description of it;
  • tell you why we are holding it;
  • tell you who it could be disclosed to; and
  • let you have a copy of the information in an intelligible form.

If you agree, we will try to deal with your request informally, for example by providing you with the specific information you need over the telephone or by email and in a timely manner (certainly within the one month maximum period). We will aim to correct any errors or erase any data you do not wish us to hold.


Questions, comments and requests regarding this privacy policy are welcomed and should be addressed to info@raremanagement.co.uk.


If we fail to respond appropriately, you may complain to the Information Commissioners Office, https://ico.org.uk.
