Where we store your information

We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Changes to this policy
The Data Protection Act (the “Act”) has various provisions which ensure that any person who has access to your personal information must comply with strict rules.
The Act provides the following principles, which we follow at all times:
• We will process your data fairly and lawfully.
• We will obtain your data only for specified and lawful purposes, and shall not use it for any other purpose.

• We will take appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect any personal data from any destruction, damage, or loss.
• We will not transfer your personal data outside the United States unless that country or territory ensures an adequate level of protection.
The Data Protection Act gives you the right to access and check information held about you. Should you wish we can provide you with all the information that we hold about you on payment of $10 for each request, which is to meet our costs in providing this information to you.
We control and operate our site from the United States (regardless of where hosting servers are located).
