Data Retention and Accuracy of Personal Information

We keep information you provide to us and which we collect about you, including Personal Information and Personal Data, for so long as you have an account with us and we continue to provide Services to you or specifically until such time as you request us to delete your Personal Information and Personal Data.

If you would at any time like to review or change the information in your account, deactivate or delete your account, you can:

  • Log in to your account settings and update or delete the information you have provided us
  • Contact us at to deactivate or delete your account

Upon request to delete your account, we will remove your account and information from our active databases. However, we may retain some information in our files to prevent fraud, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our legal terms and/or comply with applicable legal requirements.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your information, we will either delete or anonymise such information, or, if this is not possible, then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

You have the right to ask for a copy of any personal information we hold about you, and to ask for it to be corrected if you think it is wrong. If you’d like to ask for a copy of your information, or to have it corrected, please contact us at We may charge you a reasonable amount for such requests as we deem appropriate.

Security of Personal Information

We will take every reasonable precaution to ensure your personal information is secure. This includes keeping your information safe by storing it in encrypted databases and files and only allowing access to staff who have authorisation and require it for the job.

However, no electronic transmission over the internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, therefore we cannot guarantee that the data may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards by malicious persons or unauthorised third parties. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, transmission of personal information to you and from our Services is at your own risk. You should only access the Services within a secure environment.

Controls for Do-Not-Track Features

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track (‘DNT’) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities tracked. At this stage no uniform technology or industry standard for recognising and implementing DNT signals has been adopted. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this policy.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

We may, at any time and at our discretion, vary this privacy policy by publishing an amended privacy policy on our website. We recommend you check our website regularly to ensure you are aware of our current privacy policy.
