Disclosure Of Personal Information

We only disclose your personal information outside our business in limited circumstances where we are required to share that information to deliver our services to you or where legally required to share that information. We do not sell your personal information to third parties.

Security And Links To Other Websites

We take the security of your personal information seriously and use a variety of measures to keep it secure. However, transmissions over the internet and to our website and our social media pages may not be completely secure, so please exercise caution. We cannot guarantee the security of any personal information during its transmission to us online. You accept the inherent security implications of using the internet and will not hold us responsible for any breach of security.

Our website and social media pages may contain links to other websites run by other organisations which we do not control. This policy does not apply to those other websites, so we encourage you to read their privacy policies. We specifically disclaim responsibility for their content, privacy practices and terms of use, and we make no endorsements, representations or promises about their accuracy, content or thoroughness. Your disclosure of personal information to third party websites is at your own risk.

We will not hold your personal information for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which we collected it.
