Third party providers and data privacy
Keeping information about you secure is very important to us. However, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. As a result, whilst we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information which you send to us, and you do so at your own risk. Sensitive information, for example, your security information and credit card details, is encrypted to minimise the risk of interception during transit.
Cookies help you to save time. For example, if you register for our Services, a cookie helps us to remember who you are and what your preferences are. Next time you return, we can fill in any questions that you have already answered. The more you tell us about yourself, the more we can help to find information or products you want.
If you do not accept incoming cookies then the performance of our website on your system will not be to full standard or our website may not serve at all.
