Google Analytics places several persistent cookies on your computer's hard drive. These do not collect any personal data.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. All payment transactions, all traffic between the user and our servers, all traffic between system components and where applicable, all traffic between our servers and our suppliers are encrypted using SSL.

Where we have given, or you have chosen a password, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.

 

However, you acknowledge that no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take these steps to secure your personal data, we do not promise that your personal data will always remain completely secure.
