Our Company uses industry-leading security and encryption protocols to ensure any risk of data theft is maintained at a minimum. However, the internet cannot be controlled and data transfers over an internet connection always carry an inherent risk. We work hard to protect your data, buy any information you transmit over the internet is done so at your own risk.
Our Company may need to transfer information across country borders. Those countries we transmit data to may include countries that lie outside of the European Union (the "EU"). This may result in such non-EU destination countries having data protection laws that are not as strict or comprehensive as those some of our users may be used to. Where we have to transmit data outside the EU we will do our utmost to secure the data to the same levels we are required to in the EU.
