Like many other websites, the OMSCo website uses cookies. ‘Cookies’ are small pieces of information sent by an organisation to your computer and stored on your hard drive to allow that website to recognise you when you visit. They collect statistical data about your browsing actions and patterns and do not identify you as an individual.

We will ensure that your personal data will not be disclosed to other organisations, institutions and authorities unless required by law. We will not sell, rent or lease your personal data to others.

Will OMSCo share my personal information with anyone else?
We will use your information within OMSCo and will only share it outside OMSCo where you have requested it or given your consent.
