Security

We are committed to ensuring your personal information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure we have put in place safeguards to protect the information we collect. Digital transmission of data is never completely secure, and whilst we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of transmission and so you do so at your own risk. We control and limit access to personal data, and have policies and guidelines in place to which all staff have access. In order to protect your Personal Information, we may require identification from you before releasing the requested information.
