When you provide us with personal information, we take steps to ensure that it is treated securely using appropriate physical site security, electronic firewall security, and encrypted and password-protected file servers. We currently do not process or retain any credit card information.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access certain parts of our website and/or to keep your data secure, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.


We may analyse your personal information to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information relevant to you. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. We may also use your personal information to detect and reduce fraud and credit risk.
