WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a location outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by staff located outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers (for example, staff who are involved in providing services that you order from us, processing your payment details or providing support services for the Site). By submitting your personal data to us through the Site, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy statement.
We have implemented reasonable technical and organisational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorised access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, the Internet is an open system and we cannot guarantee that unauthorised third parties will never be able to defeat the measures we have taken or use your personal information for improper purposes.
From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Site, or the entire Site, to users who have registered with us. If we provide you with a user ID code or other password that allows you to access a restricted part of the Site, you must keep that information secret and ensure that the password is not used without your authority.
The Site contains links to other web sites over which we have no control. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of other web sites that you choose to link to from the Site. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any other web sites that you visit so that you can understand how they collect, use and share your information.
You are entitled to see the information that we hold about you. If you want a copy of this information or if you want to correct, update or change the information we hold about you at any time, please contact us (our contact details are set out below). Before we tell you what information we hold, we may need you to verify your identity and to pay us an administration fee in order to cover the cost of providing the information. Please note that in certain circumstances we may need to withhold information in order to comply with relevant data protection legislation.
