From time to time we may also use the information to send you information about us and possibly about third parties (we shall send such information directly to you - your information will not be provided to third parties). In all instances, if you do not want to receive such offers, you will be able to "opt out" from receiving them.

However, this disclosure shall only occur in the following circumstances:
How secure is my information?
Your information is stored on a computer server located in the USA . Our server provider attempts to keep our server secure and free from unauthorised access and use, by enforcing physical security at the premises in which the server is located, and by using industry standard technological measures to prevent unauthorised remote access to the server. Sensitive information, such as credit card and related financial information that is transmitted to our and from our servers is secured using encryption methods such as secure socket layers technology (SSL). You will know when transmitted data is safe by the appearance of a security notice when you enter a secure page. A secure icon will also appear on your browser - for Microsoft Internet Explorer this is a lock icon, and for Netscape Navigator it is small key icon. Finally, you can identify secure pages by the fact that they begin with "https://" (as opposed to http:// for standard pages). Unfortunately, no server on the Internet nor any data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Despite our best efforts to keep our server and transmissions to and from our server secure, we are unable to absolutely guarantee security and there will always be a risk of unauthorised access to your information. Although we will take all reasonable steps to keep secure any information, which we hold about you, we will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to such information.
An important aspect of the security of your personal information is the password protection system. You must keep your password secure and take care not to disclose or share it with any third parties. Although we will take care to ensure that maximum security for your personal information, you are ultimately solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your username and passwords. Please notify us immediately if you believe that your password has been disclosed, or you become aware of any unauthorised use of your account, or any other breach of security.
