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 sensitive information (such as credit or debit card details) are encrypted and protected by our 3rdparty payment processors. When you are on a secure page, a padlock will appear on the top of web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while 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 website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your passwords with anyone.
Our website may contain links to other websites run by other organisations. This policy only applies to this website, so we encourage you to read the policies on the other websites you visit. We cannot be responsible for the policies and practices of other sites even if you access those using links from our website.
In addition, if you linked to our website from a third party site, we cannot be responsible for the Policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third party site.

We are concerned to protect the privacy of children aged 16 or under. If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent / guardian’s permission beforehand; whenever you provide us with personal information.
