We take reasonable steps to ensure this information is held as securely as information stored on our equipment.
There is always risk involved in sending information through any channel over the Internet and while we aim to use our best efforts to secure and protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the “perfect security” of any information you transmit or provide to us.
