From time to time we may also provide you with additional information on how we will use your information.

The Privacy Policy does not apply to other third party websites that you may reach through links on this Site. If you access other third party sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect information from you which will be used by them in accordance with their privacy policy, which will differ from ours.

Information we collect from you and how it is used
If you browse this website, register for membership, purchase products or services, or participate in other initiatives or activities (whether online or offline), we may take some of your details. The information we may collect and process about you and how it could be used is explained in this Privacy Policy.

Where we store or process your information

The information we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) including China, India and the USA. Such destinations may not have laws which protect your data to the same extent as in the EEA. It may be processed by us or by our suppliers operating outside the EEA, but we will take all reasonably necessary steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. By using this website and by submitting or providing information to us, you consent to us transferring and storing your data in this way.

We have implemented security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the information that we have under our control from unauthorised access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorised modification and unlawful destruction or accidental loss. Where you have chosen a password that enables you to access certain parts of our website, 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 do our best to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our website and 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.

We ensure that your information will not be disclosed to regulators or authorities except where required by law or other regulation.

Disclosure

We may also disclose your information to the following third parties:
Suppliers that process information on our behalf and partners who assist in providing our services to you;
An organisation or regulatory authority where we are under a duty to disclose or share your information in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to protect the rights, property or safety of our business, our customers or others, which includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection.
