When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear on the top of web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
We may analyse your personal information to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information relevant to you. We will only contact you if you have given us relevant permission to do so.
We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. We may also use your personal
information to detect and reduce fraud and credit risk.
