We will use the information you provide only for the following purposes:

Principle 3 – Access
We have provided an administration service (your account) where you can review your personal information at any time to ensure it is correct and current. You will be able to update, correct, change or delete inaccurate details. You may also change your choice of opting in or out of marketing and promotional activities, although you may continue to receive mailings for a short period while your change is being processed. You have the right to request in writing a copy of your personal information on the payment of a small fee.

However, no information transferred over the Internet or wireless network can be guaranteed to be completely secure. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorised access by users inside and outside the company.
We will not be transferring your personal information outside of the European Economic Area or the Channel Islands unless otherwise specifically advised or directed to by a government body.
