How we ensure privacy is maintained
We endeavor to ensure that your data is stored securely and to prevent unauthorised access. We have security measures in place to protect your information which we monitor regularly.
Unfortunately, despite our measures, because of the nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that your information will remain at all times 100% secure. The continuing efforts of hackers to defeat even the newest of security systems means that we can never make this promise. Please be aware that if you disclose information on chat areas, your Profile page, comment areas, forums or other public services it may be possible for other people to use this information.
We are not responsible for the disclosure of any information you post in this way.
