How do we protect your information?
We take our data security responsibilities seriously, employing the most appropriate physical and technical measures, and review these measures regularly. We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of customer information. All sensitive credit information is transmitted via technologies used by our site’s payment providers. These are standard methods of encrypting personal information and credit/debit card details so that they can be securely transferred over the Internet.
In accordance with the above we will take appropriate security measures to guard against unauthorized access to your personal data or against its alteration, disclosure, or destruction. However, transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is therefore carried out at your own risk.
Where you have chosen (or we have provided you) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.
In case of security incidents, followed by abusive disclosure or destruction of your personal data we will adopt several measures with the aim of damage limitation. You will be informed immediately and the report of the security incident will be sent to the Information Commissioner within 24 hours.
