Protecting your information
When you submit a form, your data is secured by encryption using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Storing your data within and outside the EEA
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to an external third party hosting company (i.e. who works for us, our related companies and companies who we have contracted to process or store data on our behalf) within the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It can also be transferred to and stored at a destination outside the EEA. Please note that privacy laws in countries outside of the EEA may not be the same as, and in some cases may be less protective, ‘Personal Data’ may be subject to lawful access requests by government agencies.
