4. How We Secure Your Information

Storage and Security of Personal Information

The measures we employ are divided into 3 classes:

1. protection from internal risks;

2. protection from external risks; and

3. protection from cyber risks.

Internal Risk Management

To guard against the risk of unauthorized access, loss or disclosure of information from internal sources, we:

1. permit access to information to only those staff who require such access in order to perform their duties;

2. train staff in the use of information-technology, systems and software;

3. keep records of the equipment and storage devices maintained by us to prevent unauthorized removal;

4. Implement policies and procedures with respect to the use of information, including procedures as to how work is performed to ensure consistency with privacy principles.

External Risks

To guard against the risk of unauthorized access, loss or disclosure of information from external sources, we:

1. maintain security at our premises;

2. ensure information-technology is password protected so that access to our premises does not permit access to your information;

3. prohibit third-party personnel from accessing areas of our premises in which information is stored; and

4. Do not permit the reproduction of information for removal from our premises.

Cyber Risk

To guard against the risk of unauthorized access, loss or disclosure of information from cyber-attack or intervention, we:

1. maintain updated information-technology platforms;

2. regularly change passwords;

3. protect our systems, communications and servers using proprietary encryption software, which is updated (or replaced) regularly;

4. maintain firewalls and scanning tools to detect attempts by outside sources to access our systems, network or information-technology;

6. do not permit the installation of third-party platform software capable of displacing control of our systems.

In addition, we destroy any information held which is no longer required by us.

No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our website, you can contact us at or using the details set out at the end of this policy.
