We collect three categories of Personal Information about You; Identifiable Information, Anonymous Information and Lifestyle Information. ‘Identifiable Information’ means any information about You from which You can be personally identified, common examples include (but are not limited to); Your name, address, date of birth, phone number and email address. ‘Anonymous Information’ means information that does not identify You personally but categorises You into certain groups or categories. Commonly this is demographic information such as; age group, gender, marital status and income. Anonymous Information is useful because it allows Us to build statistical and analytical information about You which means We can better identify products and services that are relevant to You. ‘Lifestyle Information’ means information about Your way of life and interests. Like anonymous information it does not identify You personally but helps Us understand You better. Together We call this ‘Personal Information’.

We use a variety of physical and network security technologies and procedures to help protect Your information from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure.
