  • Social Media, Blogs, Reviews, and Similar Services
    Any social media posts or comments you make to us (e.g. on our own Facebook page) will be shared under the terms of the relevant social media platform (e.g. Facebook or Instagram) on which they are made and could be made public by that platform. These platforms are controlled by other organisations and so we are not responsible for this sharing.

    Data Security
    We maintain appropriate technical, physical and organisational measures to protect Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access. Unfortunately, no information security system can be 100% secure. As a result, although we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of the Personal Information against unpredictable loss or unauthorised access.

Your Rights 

Subject to restrictions under applicable law, you have the right to request from us access, rectification, erasure, restriction and portability of your Personal Information.

Data Integrity 

We take reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Information we collect is relevant for the purposes for which it is to be used and that the Personal Information is reliable for its intended use and is accurate, complete and current. However, in some cases we must rely on individual users to provide and maintain accurate Personal Information. You are responsible for making sure that your information is up-to-date and accurate when you provide it to us and where our services offer you the tools to maintain your information.

It is very important to us that all the information we hold about you remains accurate and up-to-date at all times to reduce the chances of us having a misunderstanding.

We will only retain Personal Information for as long as we are required to do so by applicable law(s), or for as long as necessary for the purpose(s) for which it is processed (e.g., for as long as you remain a member).
