Security and data retention

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it is treated securely.

As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us via the internet, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. We employ security measures to protect your information from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage.  Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
