Privacy Policy


The British Woodworking Federation (BWF) is committed to protecting the privacy of all personal information obtained from you during your visits to our website. Our aim is to safeguard the security and privacy of all users, whilst providing a personalised service which keeps our members up to date with news and information about issues affecting the industry and which are of interest and relevance to their individual preferences. This policy explains our information practices and the choices you can make about the way in which the BWF collects and uses your information.

Use of personal data

Some parts of the BWF website are available to all users; other areas are only accessible to BWF or scheme members who log in to the site. We process your personal data only for specific and limited purposes, and we ask only for that data which is adequate, relevant and not excessive for those purposes.

BWF Members:

In order to access the members only section of the website, each member is issued with a unique username and password. This is linked to our email notification service, allowing members to be kept informed of the work of the BWF. If you choose to log in to the members section of the site and to subscribe to our email notification service, you will need to pass personal data (for example, but not limited to, your email address) through this site. Such data will only be used for the services you have requested.

Other Users:

The BWF website does not automatically capture or store personal data from general visitors to the site other than to log the user’s IP address and hostname, and session details such as the duration of the visit, pages visited and the nature of the browser used. This information does not identify you personally; it is used to help us diagnose problems with our data server, to administer our website, and to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of the site. For example, we may use this data to track which pages our users are visiting most often, or to determine which web browsers our visitors use.

Use of cookies

A ‘cookie’ is a small data file that a website may send to your browser and that your browser may then store on your system. We use cookies for administrative purposes as identified above. We also use session cookies (a cookie which is only held until your web browser closes) to allow you to move within our site without necessarily reintroducing yourself. For example, we use cookies to allow you to access areas of our website that are limited to members.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually refuse or selectively accept cookies, by adjusting the preferences in your browser. If you turn cookies off, there may be some features of our site that will not be available to you and some web pages may not display properly. You can find information about cookies and how to adjust your cookie setting at the following Web sites:

Members who do not wish to receive electronic information from us and want to be removed from our email contacts list should click the appropriate link of any email newsletter sent by us.

Non-members using the site are not required to log in or supply personal data unless specifically requesting further information, and therefore will not be added to the email contact list or receive communications from the BWF apart from those relevant to your request.

Links to other websites

Our privacy policy does not apply to third party websites that may be accessible through links from the BWF website. These hyperlinks are provided for your reference and convenience only and do not imply endorsement of their activities or products unless otherwise stated. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of those third parties to learn how they collect and use information about you before using the site or providing any personal data about yourself.

Security and transfers

We do not provide an absolute guarantee of security for your registration details; however, where possible, we store all your details in a secure environment and employ appropriate technical security measures to protect your personal information and ensure that it is not accessed by unauthorised persons. Owing to the global nature of the internet infrastructure, the information you provide may be transferred in transit to countries which do not have similar protections in place regarding your data and its use as set out in this policy. Therefore by browsing this website and submitting your information, you consent to these transfers.

Notification of changes to this policy

Any changes to this privacy policy will be posted here so that you will always know what information we are collecting online, how we use it and what choices you have.

This Disclaimer is governed by the laws of England and Wales.
