The Data you provide us will be stored in a database for the length of your membership or registration validity, whichever is longer, after which it will be destroyed. The website has a firewall in place, which aim to protect Data collected from you against unauthorized or accidental access. However, complete confidentiality and security is not yet possible over the Internet, and we cannot assure complete privacy during any communication between you and us.
You should understand that personal information is disclosed at your own risk, and may be subject to unauthorized use by others. This may result in you receiving unsolicited messages from other parties. We are not responsible in any manner for direct, indirect, special or consequential damages, howsoever caused, arising from the communication of information to us.
We may occasionally send you email updates about our latest products and services, as well as special offers.
Should you prefer not to receive any email updates from us, feel free to opt out from these services by contacting us directly. Alternatively, simply replying to our email with a short note e.g. "Please do not send me email updates about your latest news and offers".
