We protect your information by using technical and administrative security measures (such as firewalls, data encryption, and physical and administrative access controls to the data and servers) that limit the risk of loss, abuse, and unauthorised access, disclosure, and alteration. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INFORMATION SUBMITTED TO US VIA THE INTERNET, NOR FOR YOUR OR ANY THIRD PARTIES’ USE OR MISUSE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION.


The security of your personal information is important to us. Please contact us immediately if you become aware of any incident involving the loss of or unauthorized access to or disclosure of personal information in our custody or control.


Except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulation, we will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. Under some circumstances we may anonymize your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you. We reserve the right to use such anonymous and de-identified data for any legitimate business purpose without further notice to you or your consent.



Abuse and unsolicited commercial communications (“spam”): We do not tolerate abuse of our Website. You do not have permission to add other Website users to your mailing list (e-mail or postal) for commercial purposes, even if a user has purchased something from you, unless the user has given his or her explicit consent. If you notice that someone is abusing our Website (spam or spoof emails), please contact us.

It is prohibited to use our member-to-member communication resources to send spam or content that violates our Terms of Use in any other way. For your security, we may scan messages automatically and check for spam, viruses, phishing and other malicious activity or illegal or prohibited content. We do not permanently store messages sent through these resources.

Third Parties: Unless explicitly provided otherwise in this Privacy Policy, this Privacy Policy applies only to the use and transfer of information we collect from you. We have no control over the privacy policies of third parties that may apply to you. When we work with third parties or use third party tools to provide certain services, we will explicitly indicate which privacy policy applies to you. We therefore encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
