Privacy policy

Buzz Active privacy policy

Our policy is to respect and protect the privacy of anyone who visits the Buzz Active website.

Personal information collected via online forms

We have taken great care to make sure that no-one can intercept personal information about you.

Where we ask you for personal information through an online form, this information will only be used for the purpose indicated and it will be held securely. Information sent in this way is encrypted.

Email is not a secure method of communication because the text may be intercepted by third parties.

Your information will not be used for any other purpose without your permission and will not be kept for longer than necessary. If you are concerned about providing your personal information online, we can arrange alternative means for you to do this. Please email

Use of IP addresses

Every computer has its own individual IP address, identifying it in the same way as a telephone number identifies your phone line.

Your anonymised IP address will appear on our usage logs which help us monitor how people use the site. With the exception of our online contact forms, we do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that while your use of the website will be logged you will remain anonymous to us.

Use of cookies

The Buzz Active website uses cookies to function effectively.

We use cookies to remember settings you have chosen, like website translation and font size, and actions you have taken, for example submitting a form. This means you don’t need to re-enter this information each time you visit a new web page.

We use cookies to gather information about how our website is used to help us maintain and develop our services. For example we monitor what pages and links are most popular.

We do not use cookies to personally identify you or collect information about you as an individual.

You can decide what cookies are allowed and delete cookies at any time by adjusting settings on your web browser. Please be aware that restricting cookies may have an impact upon the functionality of our website.
