Communicating by email, phone and post.
It is generally acknowledged that transmitting information over the internet and by phone is inherently insecure, and the security of data sent over the internet or by phone cannot be guaranteed. A similar situation can apply to information sent by post, for example, a letter might be delivered to the wrong address. Even registered post could be signed for by the wrong person. By agreeing to these forms of communication, you accept this state of affairs. If you do not accept this, it is better to opt out of such communications.

There is no charge for this. Proof of identity will be required, to comply with data protection. Please allow up to 30 days for information to be sent. This is to comply with GDPR and because I may be away at times, where I cannot check real life post or may be in locations with no internet access.
