Our website uses some or all of the Google Analytics cookies detailed here.
These cookies help us analyse how our visitors use the website. We use this information to prepare reports and improve the website. This information is anonymous. The information includes the number of visitors to the website, where visitors have come to the website from and the pages they visited. A different cookie is used for each website, and visitors are not tracked across multiple sites.

This information may then be used to evaluate visitors’ use of the Website and to compile statistical reports on website activity for OM&M.
Many web browsers allow users to control most cookies through their browser settings. You may wish to visit https://www.allaboutcookies.org/ which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of browsers. You will also find details on how to delete cookies from your computer as well as more general information about cookies. You can also install the Google Analytics Opt-out Add-on in your browser, which prevents Google Analytics from collecting information about your website visits.
We may also use the Facebook Pixel to create retargeted adverts and custom audiences for ads on our website and Facebook (published on Instagram and Audience Network platforms too).
Facebook aggregates data gathered from the use of the Facebook Pixel on our website along with data gathered from other sources, in order to improve and target adverts displayed on its website or via its services, to improve its systems and to provide measurement services to third parties that use Facebook’s advertising services.
More information on how Facebook handles individuals’ information can be found in Facebook’s Data Policy and Terms of Service. If you’d like to opt out from Facebook’s pixel-based ads, click here: https://www.facebook.com/help/568137493302217

OM&M will not disclose any personal information received in respect of your use of the website to any third party without your permission except as required by law. OM&M will take all reasonable precautions to protect any personal data you may input via this Website but cannot be responsible for and therefore excludes all liability for loss or misuse of personal data which is intercepted or otherwise accessed by unauthorised persons.
Third party websites
OMM uses industry-standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of Data, including encryption, firewalls and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). We have implemented reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security controls to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of your Data.
All individuals whose personal data we process have a number of rights under the Act.
The Act gives you the right to know and, in most instances, access a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to correct any of your data. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be made in order to understand how and why OMM are holding your data. We may charge a “reasonable fee” when a request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, particularly if it is repetitive. We are entitled to request sufficient details to assist us in responding to a request.
You also have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for direct marketing purposes and the right to be “forgotten” which means you can ask us to delete all information held on you – though this will affect our ability to provide a service to you.
