Changes in data protection law in the EU (i.e. GDPR) have prompted us to take a look at how we make sure care and wellbeing are there when we’re looking after the information you share about yourself with us. We’ve written this policy to be clear about how we treat and look after your information. It’s grounded in the European Union’s ‘GDPR’ and the USA’s ‘Fair Information’ protocols. A key component of these protocols is transparency. Please read the whole document to understand the new information we have included in our policy from 23 May 2018.
Protecting your data
Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
