Information we request directly from you such as in registration forms, order forms, surveys and contests may require you to give us contact information (like your name and email address) and demographic information (like your postcode, or age). Our order forms and the payment pages of our Payment Gateway Service Provider, require financial information (like your debit or credit card numbers) for which a secure environment is used, Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL). This data is kept in encrypted storage within the EU. There are strict access controls in place and all access is centrally monitored.

c) adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed;
d) accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay;
e) kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed; personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures required by the GDPR in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of individuals; and
