Sections of this site invite you to request information from us, or to provide information to us. If you do so, we will usually retain your email address and other contact details on an internal database. We will not without your consent disclose any personal data which you provide to us by using this site to any third parties unconnected with Bowers, except to our external data processors, or as otherwise permitted by applicable data protection legislation. Addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers and other personal data provided to us by using this site will only be used for the purposes for which the user provides it, or as stated on the relevant section of the site. In some cases, we may use this personal data for statistical analysis.

Our emails and other electronic communications to you and any of their attachments are private and confidential, may be legally and professionally privileged, and are only intended to be received by the identified recipients. If you have received an electronic communication from us by mistake, please immediately notify the sender and delete the message. You are not entitled to use or copy the message, or to disclose it to any third party.
Electronic communications are insecure, meaning that communicating electronically creates an inherent risk of interference, hacking or virus attack. Whilst we adopt and implement industry standards in guarding against such risks and take precautions to minimise the risk of our electronic communications being in any way intercepted or corrupted, it is the responsibility of the recipient(s) of the message to ensure that the content of the message and any attachment is intact and virus-free. If you require us to provide you with a greater degree of security, we can (where reasonably practicable) encrypt or password-protect our emails or other electronic communications and any attachment. Please contact the sender of our email or other electronic communication if you would like us to provide you with increased security.
We will never send you an electronic communication (email, WhatsApp, WeChat, Telegram, sms etc.) to notify you of any change to our bank account details, or to ask you to redirect any payment. If you do receive any such electronic notification or request, it is highly likely to be an attempt at fraud, so please do telephone us immediately to notify us of any such unauthorised communication.
