Security of Information
You should be aware that there are inherent risks associated with the transmission of information via the Internet.
Our internal network and databases are protected from unauthorised access using firewall and other technologies. To improve security of personal information, some electronic forms that collect this information have been secured under the HTTPS protocol (Hypertext Transport Protocol Secure), a standard Web communications protocol that encrypts and decrypts a message for online transmission.
The Data We Collect - E-mails and Electronic Forms
Where you choose to send us a completed electronic form that includes your personal details, we do collect personally identifiable information, such as name, address and email address.
The information collected by email or electronic forms will be used only for the purpose for which you provided it and we will not disclose it without your consent, except where authorised or required by law.
Where you provide us information to request a printed copy of a publication, you are implicitly providing us with approval to distribute the information to our third party mailing house where necessary to fulfil your request.
We may also use the information from your order form to measure trends in publications ordering activity which assists us to produce better and timelier information for users. The details of the information you order electronically may be used as part of this overall measurement, however it is in no other way attached to your personal details.
