Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information
When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any information you send to us is transmitted via HTTP and encrypted by Transport Layer Security (TLS). When you are on a secure page, this will be visible to you as a lock icon which will appear the bottom of web browsers or at the top near the URL field, and by the fact that the address for the website begins ‘https://’ rather than ‘http://’.
Whilst we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
