How is the information stored and protected

We take steps to protect your personal information from authorized access and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. We will only keep your personal information for as long as we reasonably require and, in any event, only for as long as the data Protection Legislation allows. Where you have chosen a password which allows you to access certain parts of the site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We advise you not to share your password with anyone. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and, although we will take steps to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted via the website; any transmission is therefore at your own risk.
