17. Information

We will use any personal data collected during your use of the Websites in
accordance with current UK data protection legislation and the data protection
notice we provide to you when you give us your personal information.


When you visit one of our Websites, we may send you a cookie. A cookie is a
small file that can be placed on your computer’s hard disc for record keeping
purposes and we may use them to do a number of things:


·  Cookies help us to
recognise you when you next visit one of our Websites and note the
advertisements displayed to you. This allows us to tailor the advertisements we
provide to your preferences. We may use the services of third party ad servers
for this purpose.


·  Cookies may be used
to compile anonymous statistics related to the take up or use of services, or to
patterns of browsing. A third party collects such data on our behalf to measure
the performance of the Websites. Information collected is aggregated for
reporting purposes. No personally identifiable information is collected by this
service. The use of this service assists us in measuring and improving the
structure and ease of use of our Websites. You are not obliged to accept cookies
and may modify your browser so that it will not accept cookies.


Children’s Privacy
The safety of children is very important to us. Whilst we will make every
reasonable effort to ensure that children’s privacy and other rights are not
compromised, it is ultimately the responsibility of parents to monitor their
children’s Internet usage.


We take every precaution to protect your personal information. When we ask you
to submit financial information, such as your credit card number, we use
industry standard technology for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts data,
including your credit card number. Most banks or credit card providers either
cover all charges resulting from unauthorised use of your credit card or limit
your liability to a maximum amount. Refer to your credit card agreement to check
your coverage for liability. You are also advised to check your coverage for
liability for unauthorised use of other cards such as debit cards.


In addition, we
have strict security protocols in place to protect our customer database, and
only allow access to it when absolutely necessary, and then under strict
guidelines as to what use may be made of such details.


What Else
you Should Know about Privacy

Remember to close your browser when you have finished your user session. This is
to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence
if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public
place like a library or Internet cafe. You as an individual are responsible for
the security of, and access to, your own computer.


Please be aware
that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information over the Internet
that this information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post
personal information in publicly accessible online forums, you may receive
unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Ultimately, you are solely
responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your usernames and passwords and any
account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are using
the Internet.


Our Websites
may contain links to other websites, and you should be aware that we are not
responsible for the privacy practices on other websites.
