Protecting your personal information

We will take all reasonable steps to keep your personal information safe from loss, unauthorised activity, or other misuse.

Accessing and correcting your personal information

In order to comply with any such request, we will need to reasonably seek evidence to confirm that you are the individual, or organisation to whom the personal information relates.
