We use this information only to analyse the use of our website to help us improve the site and our services.

Transfers of data outside the EEA

The personal data you provide to us will be transferred to and stored securely on our servers in the UK and we take steps to protect your personal data from unauthorised access and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. 

In processing your personal data, it may be necessary for us to transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"), for example, to our headquarters in Mexico. It may also be accessed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. This includes staff engaged in, among other things, the provision of support services. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy and Data Protection Laws when it is processed in, or other accessed from, a location outside the EEA. This means that we will only transfer your personal data to third parties outside the EEA if that third party (a) is situated in a country that has been confirmed by the European Commission to provide adequate protection to personal data, or (b) has agreed (by way of appropriate written contract) to provide all protections to your personal data as required by the Data Protection Legislation. 


Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

While we have implemented reasonable technical and organisational precautions to protect the security and integrity of personal data provided to our Site, the transmission of data via the internet is not completely secure and as such we cannot guarantee the security of that information transmitted through our site. Any transmission of data via our site is therefore at your own risk. However we will at all times maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal data as required under Data Protection Laws.

You agree to (a) immediately notify us of any unauthorised use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. It is your responsibility to control the dissemination and use of your password, control access to and use of your account, and notify us when you desire to cancel your account on this Site. We are not responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this provision. 

We will not be liable for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorised acts of third parties during or after transmission.

We recommend that you change your password every three months. If you are using a public computer (e.g. at a library), or a shared computer, we urge you to log out of your account and our Site altogether, and quit the browser application before you leave the computer. This will help prevent others from accessing your account and any personal data. 

In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your personal information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavour to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances using appropriate lawful methods, and, to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail. You hereby consent to our use of e-mail as a means of such notification.

Your personal data (including any relevant correspondence between us)  may be retained, processed and used (by us and our service providers) for as long as necessary in accordance with applicable regulations and/or our internal policies, and in locations that we consider appropriate for the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy and at all times in accordance with Data Protection Laws.
