Keeping your information safe
While no online service is 100% secure, when you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that appropriate technical and organizational practices are in place to protect it.

Some personally identifying details (such as your name, email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We use modern authentication protocols to ensure your account and passwords are secure.
