When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive information is encrypted and protected. When you are on a secure page, a padlock icon will appear (usually in the web browsers address bar), which you can click on to get security information.
Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet when sending and receiving emails, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us by email, 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.
Where you have chosen a password which enables you to access your account you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We do not know your password and cannot access it.
