How safe is your data and where we store your information

Your personal data's security is very important to us. This is why, where it's appropriate, our Site uses HTTPS to help keep information about you secure. However, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure.

We do our best to keep the information you disclose to us secure. However, we can't guarantee or warrant the security of any information which you send to us, and you do so at your own risk. By using our site you accept the inherent risks of providing information online and will not hold us responsible for any breach of security.

It might sometimes be necessary for us to transfer your personal information outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) to locations that may not provide the same level of protection as the UK. However, we will only transfer your personal information out of the EEA if we have put in place appropriate safeguards and protections as stated under UK law for example by the use of a data-transfer agreement incorporating certain standard model protection clauses.

The information which we collect may be stored and processed both inside and outside of the European Economic Area. Our business partners may have staff who process your data outside of the EEA. Local data protection laws in those areas may not provide the same level of protection as in the EEA.

By submitting your data you consent that your data may be processed, transferred or handled in this way. Note we do take all reasonable steps to ensure your data is handled securely and in line with this policy and our internal data security policy.
