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. We do not store any sensitive information about you.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

We ask you not to share your password with anyone.


We do not use any of your information for profiling. We may use your data for statistical and analytical purposes, however any personal identification will be removed.
