Social Media Services
When you communicate with other users on social media channels we post on, be aware that if you comment on a post, image or advertisement, this information is available to the public in an online environment. Each user is solely responsible for their posted comments. If you choose to use any such social media platform, please be aware that this environment and all data posted there is publicly accessible. We cannot control how other parties will use this information. We are unable to prevent you from receiving unsolicited messages or communications from third parties.
If you no longer want to be contacted by one of our employees or receive the newsletter through our service, please unsubscribe directly from that newsletter by clicking the “unsubscribe” link provided on that newletter or contact us directly to update or delete your data by emailing us here.
We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we hold about you is not subject to loss, misuse or unauthorized access or alteration. However, no security system is impenetrable and, due to the inherent nature of the internet, we cannot guarantee that information, during transmission through the internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise, will be absolutely safe from unauthorized access by others. Access to personal data on our databases is subject to reasonable technical safeguards. We will also take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information if it is no longer required.
Web Server Protocols (Including IP Address)
Whenever you use our site, or any website, the server on which the web pages are stored requests the network address of your device so that it can send the required web pages to your browser. The unique network address of your device is called an IP address, and is sent automatically each time you access any Internet site. From a device’s IP address, it may be possible to determine the general location of that device but is otherwise anonymous. We do not keep a record of the IP addresses from which users access our site except where you have specifically provided us with information about yourself, in which case we may record your IP address for security purposes.
If you have any queries regarding this policy, you may contact us here.
