“cookie” based information that makes your use of our Site easier by recording your preferences so that when you return to our Site the “cookie” re-loads that information into your web browser.
For example, we will collect Personal Information from you when you register on our website, subscribe to our newsletter, respond to a survey or fill out a form related to any customer service feature operating on our websites.

The security of your Personal Information is important to us but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We use different technologies and procedures to help protect Personal Information from unauthorized access, loss, alternation, disclosure or use. Some of the safeguards we use are physical access controls, information firewalls and access authorisation controls to where your Personal Information is held in data centres. We also use data encryption when Personal Information is transferred to and from our service providers. Our commitment to data security means:
we have procedures to limit access to Personal Information within our organisation;
