Security and Information Protection
The security of your information is very important to us. All reasonable steps are taken to protect your information. We use generally accepted methods of security when processing your data. However, as no information transfer online can be guaranteed to be secure, we cannot guarantee the security and transmission of your data. We can guarantee that we will carry out due diligence and protect your data to an acceptable standard, but cannot guarantee absolute security.
The information we hold about you is protected by firewalls and other hardware/software that protects from data hijacking and data theft. Unfortunately, as no system is 100% secure, we are unable to guarantee with absolute certainty that your data is 100% secure. We are unable to assume responsibility for any data that is stolen, destroyed or inadvertently disclosed.
