However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and the General Data Protection Regulations require them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties for them to use for their own  purposes, unless we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.
  • We may transfer your personal information to a third party if we’re under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to enforce or apply our terms of use or to protect the rights, property or safety of our company or other customers.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely.

  • We do not retain any sensitive information such as credit or debit card details. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear in your browser window – our website can only be accessed via a secure internet connection.
  • 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 do not analyse your personal information to create a profile of your interests and preferences, nor do we use automated profiling systems.

We do not aggregate personal information when it is available from external sources.
