Security of Your Personal Information 

When we collect and process personal information, and while we retain this information to fulfil our contract with you, we will protect it within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification. 

Although we will do our best to protect the personal information you provide to us, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure.

If necessary, we may retain your personal information for our compliance with a legal, accounting, or reporting obligation or for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific, or historical research purposes or statistical purposes. 

International Transfers of Personal Information 

The personal information we collect is stored and/or processed where we or our partners, affiliates, and third-party providers maintain facilities. Please be aware that the locations to which we store, process, or transfer your personal information may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. If we transfer your personal information to third parties in other countries: we will endeavour to perform those transfers in accordance with the requirements of applicable law; and we will protect the transferred personal information in accordance with this privacy policy. 

Age Restrictions
