  • access to your PD is only available to the staff who require it to perform their duties; and
  • installing and maintaining industry standard technology to protect our networks and data storage  systems from third party interference.

However, you will appreciate that it is not for us to perfectly secure your PD from cyber-attacks, such as spyware or viruses and you will not hold us liable for any unauthorized disclosure of your personal data arising from such risks.
