Where we store your personal data

The data that we col­lect from you may be trans­ferred to, and stored at, a des­tin­a­tion out­side the European Eco­nom­ic Area (“EEA”). It may also be pro­cessed by staff oper­at­ing out­side the EEA who work for us or for one of our sup­pli­ers or asso­ci­ates. Such staff may­be engaged in, among oth­er things, the deliv­ery of your ser­vice, the pro­cessing of your pay­ment details and the pro­vi­sion of sup­port ser­vices. By sub­mit­ting your per­son­al data, you agree to this trans­fer, stor­ing or pro­cessing. We will take all steps reas­on­ably neces­sary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accord­ance with this pri­vacy poli­cy.

All inform­a­tion you provide to us is stored on third party secure servers. Any pay­ment trans­ac­tions may be car­ried out by a third party act­ing on our behalf. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a pass­word which enables you to access cer­tain parts of our site, you are respons­ible for keep­ing this pass­word con­fid­en­tial. We ask you not to share a pass­word with any­one.

Unfor­tu­nately, the 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 at your own risk. Once we have received your inform­a­tion, we will use strict pro­ced­ures and secur­ity fea­tures to try to pre­vent unau­thor­ised access.
