However, we will at all times be responsible for the use of your personal information.

You can delete cookies from your hard drive at any time. Bear in mind, though, that if you delete these cookies, any settings such as your stored username and password will have to be reset when you log in again.
We use Google Analytics and other Google services that place cookies on a browser across the website. These cookies help us increase the website’s effectiveness for our visitors. These cookies are set and read by Google. We use data from Google Analytics Demographics, Interest Reporting and 3rd party audience data to help us understand how people find and use our site.

We use reputable third party systems to deliver the e-mails you will receive from our website if you subscribe to our e-mail newsletters or have chosen to receive information about products and offers. These third party systems use unique identifiers and invisible images (often called “pixel tags” or “clear GIFs”) to perform message open sensing, message format sensing, and click-through sensing on our behalf in order to bring you more relevant information.
We have put reasonable technical and organisational measures in place to ensure that users’ personal information is not misused, accidentally destroyed, lost or altered. However the internet is an open system and we cannot guarantee that unauthorised third parties will never be able to defeat these measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.
Transfer of Personal Data Overseas
Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal information necessarily involves the transmission of information on an international basis. Therefore, by browsing our websites and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal information in this way. Where your personal information is transferred outside the European Economic Area for processing, we will ensure that the transfer is compliant with the Act.
