We cannot guarantee the information we collect is completely secure. The internet and its ability to transmit data isn't flawless, and there is no current method of guaranteeing complete security. However, we will do our best to protect and secure information by taking reasonable steps to identify all reasonably foreseeable risks to security; and establish and maintain appropriate safeguards against such risks.

7. When we might disclose information

As part of our regular business conduct, we may share information we collect with companies or individuals providing services or acting on our behalf, such as companies providing technological or fulfilment services.
