The Services are not directed to children under 13, and we do not knowingly collect or store any Personal Data about persons under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected Personal Data of a child under 13, we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as practicable.

4. Security of Personal Data

We take commercially reasonable steps to protect against the loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration of Personal Data collected through the Website. We recognize the importance of security for all Personal Data collected through the Website and other means. We exercise care in providing secure transmission of your information from your web browser to our servers. Once we receive Personal Data, we take the necessary steps to protect its security on our systems. In the event we request or transmit sensitive information, we use industry standard 128-bit secure-socket-layer (“SSL”) encryption. We strictly limit access to Personal Data to those employees who need access in order to carry out their job responsibilities. All employees are prohibited from “browsing” through our files and databases.

We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use the necessary tools such as encryption, passwords, and physical security to protect your information against unauthorized access and disclosure in accordance with the DPA and other applicable legislation. However, third-parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmission or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your information that they collect. Therefore, although we make every commercially reasonable attempt to protect your Personal Data and privacy, we do not promise or guarantee that your Personal Data will not be subject to a breach of security or otherwise obtained. In the event of breach of security in which we determine through reasonable investigation that your Personal Data was or is reasonably believed to have been unlawfully obtained or used, we shall notify you in accordance with the DPA and other applicable legislation.

5. Cookies

When you visit the Website, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a “cookie” or similar file and can help us maintain and improve the Website in many ways. A “cookie” is a small amount of data that is transferred to your web browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card, recording such things as Internet address, passwords, and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. This is all done without us knowing your name or other Personal Data. When you visit the Website you are anonymous, unless you chose to identify yourself to us. With most web browsers, you can erase “cookies” from your computer hard drive, block all “cookies”, or receive a warning before a “cookie” is stored. Please refer to the “Help” portion of the browser toolbar to learn more about these functions. The Website will operate properly only if the “cookie” feature of your browser is configured to allow this site to create cookies.

We use “session” cookies to keep you logged in while you use our Services, to better understand how you interact with our Services, and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic information on our Services. We use “persistent” cookies to recognise you each time you return to our Services. For example, we create a persistent cookie that includes some basic information about you, like your most recent search. We use this persistent cookie to remember your preferences and, if you create an account, to make your user experience consistent after you register.

Cookies used on this site do not give us access to Personal Data. We suggest taking a look at the ‘About Cookies’ website for guidance about deleting and controlling cookies in different browsers. Please also review the terms of our Cookie Policy which clearly sets out the cookies which we use:

Finally, please note that we may disclose Personal Data when required by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with the law or legal process. This includes:

(a) If it is necessary for us to respond to subpoenas, court order, or legal process, or to exercise our rights to defend against legal claims.
(b) We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, violations of our agreements with you, or as otherwise required by law.

The information we collect is not shared, rented, or sold, to non-affiliated third-parties for their marketing or promotional use.

However, we may disclose Personal Data to non-affiliated third-parties with whom we contract to perform certain functions or services on our behalf. If we disclose Personal Data to others that perform business services for us, they are required to take appropriate steps to protect this information. And, they may use the information only for the purposes of performing those business services.
