Online forms and CAPTCHA

We are committed to the security and integrity of our online forms.

We have introduced a CAPTCHA function on some online forms including contact forms.

CAPTCHA reduces the risk of attacks from spam bots which supports our forms to be available when you need them.

If you have any enquiries about the CAPTCHA function or require any further support, call please contact us.

Social media and online community guidelines

It is important that our online environments are safe places where everyone can participate without fear of an inappropriate response. To maintain online communities that are safe, respectful and constructive, we have created community guidelines that govern behaviour across our social media and online communities.

Behaviour that is deemed to be anti-social will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to delete any comments that we consider, within our discretion, to not follow our guidelines, and to ban or block offending users from our pages or channels.

We ask that all participants follow these guidelines.

  • Don't mislead or misinform – you must not promote incorrect or inexpert advice or other information.
  • Remain respectful – please be respectful of others and their opinions and refrain from behaviour which is offensive, harassing or discriminatory. This includes the use of harassing others through private messages, inappropriate language and views that are racist, sexist, homophobic, sexually explicit or otherwise objectionable.
  • Don’t get personal – do not harass others or make personal attacks.
  • Be yourself – please post under your own name or include your name in your profile. Comments from anonymous, misleading or suspicious profile names may be deleted, regardless of topic.
  • Stay on topic – misleading, off-topic, inflammatory, repetitive, offensive, defamatory or inappropriate comments may be hidden or deleted.
  • Protect your identity – do not reveal any personal or sensitive information about yourself or others, including our staff, for example, bank details. We may ask to take a conversation offline if it is of a sensitive nature.
  • Observe the law – do not post anything which breaks the law or encourages others to engage in unlawful activity, such as breach of copyright, defamation or contempt of court.
  • Stay safe – do not describe or encourage activities which could endanger the safety or wellbeing of others.
  • Don’t post SPAM – do not post or repost information or links to advertisements, requests or offers, or anything else that could be considered to be commercially motivated.
  • Observe channel rules – in addition to our own requirements, make sure you observe the policies of the specific social media channels that you are using, including the rules of Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube.
