In respect of personal data transfers subject to the UK GDPR, we rely on the International Data Transfer Addendum to the EU Commission Standard Contractual Clauses (version B.1.0) issued by the UK Information Commissioner for transferring personal data to third countries.

Your personal information may be disclosed outside of the UK to countries that do not have laws equivalent to UK data protection laws, including to Australia We may also engage service providers outside the UK, and Australia.

  • Australia;

  • Europe: United Kingdom;

  • Asia: The Philippines.

We may hold your personal information in either electronic or hard copy form. We take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse, interference and loss, as well as unauthorised access, modification or disclosure and we use a number of physical, administrative, personnel and technical measures to protect your personal information. We do this by taking a range of physical, electronic and other security measures such as:


  • storing electronic documents containing personal information in secure hardware and software systems, and hard copy documents containing personal information in locked cabinets and storage places;

  • maintaining physical and software protection over paper and electronic data stores and premises, by way of locks and encryption security systems; and

  • maintaining computer and network security via the use of firewalls, email and internet monitoring systems, as well as the use of security features that involve user identification and passwords that control access.


Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of the information transmitted to our services or via our website.  We therefore do not assume any responsibility for any transmission of your information, which you do at your own risk. 

Our website may contain links to websites that are operated by third parties. Those links are provided for your convenience only, and may not always be current or maintained.
