Keeping your data secure
Where we store your personal data
Ensuring your personal data is kept and transferred securely is of the highest importance to us.
We hold your personal data on our secure systems in the USA. Where we employ service providers, we have appropriate agreements in place to ensure your personal data is protected.
How we keep your personal data secure
We are committed to protecting the security of the personal data we hold. We deploy appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure your personal data are kept securely and to prevent any unauthorized access. We have robust procedures and features in place to prevent such unauthorized access.
How long we keep your personal data
We hold personal data for a variety of different purposes and the length of time we keep your information will vary depending on the services we are providing to you. We will only keep your personal data for a reasonable period of time and we base this on the purpose for which we are using it. There will be circumstances in which we keep a strictly minimal amount of information about you, for example to ensure we can honor an objection to receiving direct marketing. We will also, in specific circumstances, be required to retain personal data for a longer period of time for contractual or legal reasons.
Reporting security vulnerabilities
We are committed to the privacy, safety and security of our customers. If you discover a potential security vulnerability, we would ask you to please report it just to us in a responsible manner. Please email us at [email protected] and we will respond to you as soon as possible. This provides us with an opportunity to work with you and quickly address and resolve any issue. Publicly disclosing a potential vulnerability could put the wider community at risk, and therefore we encourage you to come to us first. We'll keep you informed as we move forward with our investigations.
We use IP addresses to analyse trends, administer the site, track users' movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
