All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions made through our site will be encrypted using SSL technology. 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 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.
Retention of your personal data
We shall not keep your personal data for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed and will in any event not retain your personal data for longer than 3 years. However, we may retain your personal data for a longer period where necessary for compliance with any legal obligations to which we are subject (including, without limitation, compliance with all relevant tax legislation), or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another person.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing at any time by contacting us at email@example.com or by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link (if any) in any marketing email or newsletter you receive from us.
Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates.

You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data that we store about you rectified and to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.
Subject to certain exceptions you have the right under specified circumstances to the erasure of your personal data, for example where the data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it is processed or where you have withdrawn your consent (where consent is the sole basis for processing). However, this right does not apply where, for example, processing is necessary for our compliance with a legal obligation.
You have the right to restrict our processing of your personal data, for example where you might contest the accuracy of the data or where we no longer need the data for the purposes of processing but you require it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. Where processing has been so restricted, we may continue to store your data, but will only process it with your consent, for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, for the protection of the rights of another person, or for reasons of public interest.
If you think that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a right to lodge a complaint with the ICO (in the UK) or with an equivalent supervisory authority responsible for data protection.
