Data Security
We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your information from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure. These measures include measures to secure our servers and data transmission, as well as measures to prevent unauthorised access to our systems and data.
We may employ a number of technical, organisational and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information we collect. However, no security measures are failsafe and we cannot guarantee the security of personal information. You use the services at your own risk.

Retention of Personal Information
We will retain your information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, or as required by law. We will also retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
We retain personal information only for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected and processed, in accordance with our retention policies, and in accordance with applicable laws and regulatory obligations or until you withdraw your consent (where applicable).
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of personal information, the purposes for which we use personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal and regulatory requirements.

Do Not Track
Some web browsers may have a "Do Not Track" feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, so we are not currently set up to respond to such signals.
