FML websites contain hyperlinks to websites owned and operated by third parties and these websites will have their own privacy notices and FML encourage users to review them. FML does not accept any responsibility or liability for the practices of such third party websites and users should read carefully their privacy statements. FML understands that some communications may be relevant to users and others are not and some unsolicited communications are unwelcome, so it is fully committed to ensuring that the rights and obligations set out in the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003, as amended 2011, are respected.
FML will ask for limited personal information when users register to receive a service from a FML website, such as a newsletter or take part in a competition or survey, or book a place at an event. FML will also collect personal information from users when they register for one of its publications or when users communicate over the telephone or via written correspondence. This can include information such as name, job title, postal address, telephone or mobile number, fax number, email address. The information collected will vary depending on the website, but only by supplying this data, is FML able to provide users with the services requested.
The personal information may be used for a number of purposes including the following:
FML may also disclose user's personal information to any member of the FML group.
FML may disclose user's personal data where it believes it is compelled to do so by law. Occasionally, FML may share contact information with carefully selected third party companies whose products and services it feels may be of interest. FML will keep these offers relevant to user’s interests. All will contain an easy method to unsubscribe from any email or mobile messages no longer wanted.
FML use a number of partner organisations to help provide a service to customers (e.g. fulfilment bureaus, subscription bureaus, mailing houses). These organisations act as data processors and sign a confidentiality agreement with FML to ensure that they can control how they use personal data. Some of FML's partners may be located outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Countries outside the EEA may not be required to protect personal information as stringently as countries inside.
Under the Data Protection Act 1998 users have the right to request a copy of the personal information held about them. This right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access may be subject to an administration fee of ￡10 to meet FML's costs.

If you do not wish to receive certain types of communication, just let us know. When you register for any of our publications, you will be given the opportunity to opt out from all third party communications. Any marketing communications you do subsequently receive from us will always include a clear, simple method to 'opt-out' of future communications. This can be at various levels e.g. If you don’t wish to receive any communications at all, we can stop everything - just let us know (using the contact details below). If you just want communications on certain subject areas stopped, again just let us know (use the contact details below). Alternatively you can simply block messages from particular magazines or specific third parties by using the option contained within all communications. The Telephone Preference Service (TPS) and the Mailing Preference Service (MPS) offer consumers protection against unsolicited marketing contact. If you are registered on either service, FML will assume that your subsequent submission of personal data means that you have consented to receive marketing from us, unless otherwise instructed
