Sark Folk Festival 2012

May 31st, 2012 · Ash · No Comments

In the spirit of designing festival sites, as well as the VH Festival, Betley Whitehorne has designed The Sark Folk Festival 2012 website. We’ve enjoyed trying to capture the laid back, friendly feel of this festival, as well as impoving the usability for those wishing to find out information on the festival and vital information about the island of Sark, which is so central to the festival. We hope this festival gets the exposure as it deserves! Read more

Betley Whitehorne helps launch theQROPSreport.com website

May 3rd, 2012 · Chris · No Comments

Recognised QROPS expert Rex Cowley, of NewDawn consultancy, has released an authoritative report to the QROPS market, significantly just at a time when big questions are being asked about the product following recent rulings by the British Government over Guernsey registered schemes, and its decision to close virtually all of them.

The QROPS Report is available to purchase via theQROPSreport.com and is the result of many months of global research on the market, its components, opportunities and future, and includes not only QROPS but also SIPPS, QNUPS, IPPs, life and investment risk underwriting and multi-asset investment products. It represents the most significant insight available on the offshore pensions market and is an invaluable guide for anyone working in the industry.

TheQROPSreport.com was designed and built by Channel Islands’ ad agency, Betley Whitehorne.

Surely, if the EU is forcing website owners to update their sites to protect users against being tracked and whatnot, then they should force users to update their web browsers too, to protect them against much more serious problems like viruses that exploit old browsers. Even better, if they did this, then they would be running modern browsers featuring a ‘do not track’ option meaning websites wouldn’t need to alert users. One last point, how can websites store a users decision if they want to use cookies or not? With a cookie, but do we need to ask permission to store that cookie too? And if they say no? What then!?
