We endeavour to keep updated information and records about your personal information. This enables us to provide you with the best service possible. To assist us with this please inform us of any changes to your personal records such as change of telephone number or address as soon as possible.

Historical data is regularly archived and encrypted for security purposes.
Accessing your personal information
We will provide you access to the personal information we have about you. This information is available to you via your log in to our web site.
Communicating with you and remarketing
Occasionally we will use your personal information to let you know about new developments and products that we offer that might better serve your needs or other opportunities which may interest you.
We may use third party service providers to assist with this (such as mail services or advertising agencies including, but not limited to, Google, Bing, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter). We will not allow these service providers to use your information for any purpose other than for our communications.
The following link may be used to help you opt out of any remarketing pixels and technologies.
