How your privacy is protected while visiting this site

Thomas Hannah & Co. is committed to protecting the privacy of all visitors to this web site. This web site complies with the United Kingdom Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003. Visitors may access the site in its entirety without providing any personal data whatever.

Personal data

We do not attempt to collect any personal data about you through this web site unless you provide it to us voluntarily; for example, by sending us email. We use this data only for the purpose for which you provide it; for example, to reply to a question or enquiry you have sent. We shall not give your name, address, email address or any other personal data to any third party unless it is clearly necessary for the purpose for which you provided the data.

Information collected automatically

Like most web sites, our web server creates log files. The server automatically collects and records in the log files some information about your visit to this site, such as the type of web browser and operating system you are using, the pages you visit, and the date and time of your visit. We cannot identify you personally from this information. We may use the log files to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how people use our site and help us improve its content and structure. None of this information is shared with third parties.


Our web server may set browser cookies for the purpose of measuring visitor traffic. Cookies allow our web server to recognise your computer as a unique visitor as you move from page to page or make return visits to the site. These cookies do not store or expose any personal data, and you need not have cookies enabled in order to access and use this site. If you would like to know more about cookies, the web site gives helpful information on what they are and how to control or delete them with your web browser.

This web site contains links to other sites. Please note that Thomas Hannah & Co. is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of those web sites. We encourage you to be aware of when you leave our site, and to read the privacy statements of every web site that collects personal data. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this web site,


We do not send out bulk, unsolicited commercial email, often known as “spam”. The only email messages we send

  • contain information that has been specifically requested; or
  • are in furtherance of an existing business relationship.
