Online Services

We provide, offer and operate a number of websites, social media profiles, email updates and other online services (Online Services).

It is possible to use some of our Online Services without providing us with any personal information. However, we may not be able to provide the information or service a user requests if the personal information which is indicated as mandatory is not provided.

We may also collect aggregated information which tells us about users of our Online Services but not the identity of those users, unless they register or otherwise provide personal information to us (in which case, the identity of a user may become apparent).

Cookies may be used by us for a variety of purposes. For example, we may use cookies to recognise a browser which has previously accessed our Online Services and customise our Online Services according to previous preferences and behaviour. Cookies may also be used to manage security and store information about the type of browser being used. With most Internet browsers, users can erase cookies from their computer’s hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.

Storage of Personal Information

We hold personal information in physical files, computer systems or in a database held by us and by service providers on our behalf. We regard the security of personal information as a priority and use a number of physical and electronic security measures to protect it. Depending on the circumstances, these steps can include security software protections, data access restrictions, firewalls, restricted access to our sites and requirements for our service providers to protect personal information they handle on our behalf.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as completely secure. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us and individuals do so at their own risk.

A username and password may be essential for you to use some of our Online Services or parts of them. For your own protection, we require you to keep these details confidential and to change your password regularly (if applicable).

If you have registered your details for our Online Services, or as an investor with our share registry, you may be able to access and update personal information on your profile, subject to any authentication and authorisation considerations, which exist to protect your security.
