There are times when we may need to gather specific information from you, such as your name and contact details. Information that is essential for us to answer queries and provide the services that are requested by you is generally designated as “required”.

 

Additional information that would allow us flexibility in providing services and may be used for internal statistical studies or market research, is generally indicated as “optional”. The choice of how much personally identifiable information you disclose to us is completely at your discretion.

 

How we protect your data

 

We protect your personal data against unauthorised access, unlawful use, accidental loss, corruption or destruction. We use technical measures such as password protection to protect your data and the systems they are held in. We also use operational measures to protect your data, for example by limiting the number of people who have access to the database in which your information is held. We keep these security measures under review.
