By using any services we offer, you agree to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information as described in this policy.
Information we collect
We may collect and process the following personal information or data (information that can be uniquely identified with you) about you:
- Certain information required to register with us or to access other services provided by us;
- Your e-mail address and a password;
- Details of any orders or requests for goods or services;
- Copies and details of correspondence with us
- Replies to any surveys or questionnaires;
- Details of financial transactions;
- Details of your visits to our website and the resources that you access;
- Information we may require from you when you report a problem with our website.
We only collect such information when you choose to supply it to us. You do not have to supply any personal information to us but you may not be able to take advantage of all the services we offer without doing so.
Information is also gathered without you actively providing it, through the use of various technologies and methods such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and cookies. These methods do not collect or store personal information.
An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), so you can access the Internet. It is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address can only be traced back to your ISP or the large company or organisation that provides your internet access (such as your employer if you are at work).
We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, and determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and to administer and improve the site.

in order to enforce the terms of any agreement between us or between users;
to protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our users, or any other third parties including exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction
as part of a sale or transfer of our business (in which case we will take steps to ensure your rights are protected).
Other than as set out above, we shall not disclose any of your personal information unless you give us permission to do so.
