Transfers of Information Outside of the EEA/UK:

How We Protect Your Information:
We safeguard and protect the security of all data in accordance with applicable law, inclusive of any information collected by us from you through the Sites and the CX Centres. It is also important for you to comply with the access controls (e.g. username/password management) and other applicable provisions of the Terms to protect against unauthorised access to the devices you use to access the Sites. Although we protect your information to the standard required by law, as technologies change note that we cannot guarantee the absolute security of all information collected or transmitted through our Sites or the CX Centres.
Storage Period for Information:
We retain information only for so long as it is necessary or relevant to fulfil the relevant purposes or comply with applicable law, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems or assist with investigations.
