Security and where we store your personal data

We are committed to protecting the security of your personal data.  We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal data from unauthorised access and use.  As effective as modern security practices are, no physical or electronic security system is entirely secure.  We cannot guarantee the complete security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.  We will continue to revise policies and implement additional security features as new technologies become available.

The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and may involve the transfer of data to countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA).  This occurs typically through the use of cloud solutions for web hosting, email hosting or proprietary software solutions delivered to us through the Cloud.  We do not, however, authorise any third party to use your personal data for their own purposes.  Non-EEA countries may not provide an adequate level of protection in relation to processing your personal data.  By submitting your data, you agree to this transfer, storing and processing.

Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data transmitted to us.  Any transmission of data is at your own risk.  Once we receive your personal data, we use appropriate security measures to seek to prevent unauthorised access.
