  2. COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES

    The App and Websites use cookies. A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we may set on your device.

    If you create a user ID, a password or any other authentication information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential. You must not disclose it to anyone else and must take appropriate steps to keep your information secure by not using an obvious login name and ensuring that you keep your password confidential and change it regularly. If you know or suspect that anyone other than you, or anyone authorised by you, knows your user ID, password or any other authentication information, you must promptly notify us using the contact details below. You are entirely responsible for all activities that occur through use of your user ID, even if another person was using your account at the relevant time. We are not responsible for any losses or liabilities arising out of or in connection with any unauthorised use of the App or Websites.

    Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted via the App or Websites; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
