Information security measures

We use the latest encryption technology (Secure Sockets Layer or SSL) to secure personal information.

This coding makes it extremely difficult for anyone to reach personal information as it moves through our system.

To use our websites, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Firefox or Chrome. This protects the confidentiality of personal information while it is transmitted over the Internet.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Data retention

We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
