The Bumblebee Partnership recommends: pour yourself a cuppa, make yourself comfortable and always read the small print - even ours!
The nature of the industrial and product design process means that everyone at the Bumblebee Partnership is very conscious of the importance of privacy and confidentiality. That approach includes how we gather and store information.
With regards to the our website, our host collects data about traffic and stores cookies on your computer, but all we see are the numbers coming to the site and, if we're really curious, what pages you visit. We're not interested in anything else.
We suggest that you routinely update your virus protection, make sure that your firewall is appropriate to your browsing style, and that you regularly clear out cookies that are stored on your computer (it's amazing how the little monsters accumulate!).
Links to external sites
We may from time to time provide links to other websites that we think might be of relevance to you. We try to link only to reputable sites and reputable companies. However, once you leave bumblebeepartnership.co.uk, we can't give you any promises as to your online safety. We recommend that you remain vigilant, use sensible precautions, and read their privacy policies too.

We may need to update this policy from time to time and will update this page accordingly. You should check this page periodically to satisfy yourself that you are still comfortable with the way in which we try to safeguard your information.
