To do so, we have considered the impact on your interests and rights, and have placed appropriate safeguards to ensure that the intrusion on your privacy is reduced as much as possible.

Consent – Sometimes we want to use your personal data in a way that is entirely optional for you, such as when you sign up to our newsletter. On these occasions, we will ask for your consent to use your information. You can withdraw this consent at any time by following the instructions in the marketing communication (e.g. clicking “unsubscribe” in the marketing email) or reaching out to us using the information in the section “How to Contact Us”.

These providers process your personal data as part of the services they offer to us. We take steps to ensure that our service providers process your data in accordance with the Data Protection Laws, only use it in accordance with our contract with them and keep it secure. If you would like more information about our processors, please contact us using the details at the section “How to contact us”.

We strive to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures in order to protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss or alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access and any other unlawful forms of processing.
