4. Where do we store your personal data?
We will always try to ensure that your personal data is processed within the European Economic Area. In some circumstances this will not be possible. In circumstances where it is necessary for us to transfer your personal outside the European Economic Area, we will only transfer such personal data to third parties where we have carried out due diligence on such third parties to ensure they will protect your personal data using similar standards and safeguards as we have. We will also have contractual provisions in place with such third parties to ensure your personal data is protected. Such contractual provisions will be based on the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission for the transfer of data outside the EEA or such other appropriate standards as are required from time to time by the European Commission or the UK Government. You consent to the transfer of your personal data outside of the EEA, as long as we comply with these requirements.
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology. Where we have given you (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 a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, and we will maintain appropriate technical and organisation measures to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. Some of the specific measures we use to keep your personal data safe and secure include encryption technology, amongst other things. Where the personal information you have supplied to us is sensitive personal data, we will use such technical and organisational measures as we consider necessary to ensure the sensitive personal data is kept as secure as possible.
