Any payments you make to us via BACS, online bank transfer, PayPal or by cheque are also recorded by our bank (HSBC) - we do not control their own data collection and storage policies and security; however, we are happy with their policy at the time of writing this policy.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely.

When you are on a secure page, a suitable notification will be shown by your web browser (e.g. Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge).

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) may be transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
