This helps us see how many people have accessed our information online, and what they did with it. This information is used internally only to inform and improve our website and online communication.

How we keep your information safe:
It is important to be aware that there is always a risk associated with transmitting data online, especially if it is over a public network or computer. The protection of non-sensitive details such as your email address can never be guaranteed 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. All staff who have access to your personal information are trained in how to keep your data secure.
