Keeping your information safe

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive information (such as bank, credit or debit card details) will always be entered on a secured page and transferred using SSL, a cryptographic protocol designed to provide communication security over the Internet. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear on the web browser.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, 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, 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 will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably needed in order to fulfil the purposes we collected it for.

International security and transferring your information outside of the European Union

We operate internationally and may need to transfer your personal information outside the UK and EU to a country which may not have equivalent protections for your data as your country of residence.

By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EU. Or, for example, where your data is processed by staff operating outside the EU who work for us or for one of our suppliers.

If we transfer your data outside of the EU, we will wherever possible take steps to ensure that a similar degree of protection is afforded to it.

If you use our services while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU in order to provide you with those services.

By submitting your personal data, you are agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing of your data.

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way. Note however than no system is 100% secure or error-free and therefore we do not, and cannot, guarantee the security or accuracy of information that is gathered by us and our contracted third-party partners.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any appropriate regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
