Use of the Information for a Secondary Purpose
We may sometimes use or disclose the Personal Information we collect for a secondary purpose, that is, for use in a way different from the original reason for collection. We will only do this in the following circumstances:

We strive to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of Personal Information submitted to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. However, we will endeavour to take reasonable steps to protect the Personal Information which we hold about you from misuse and loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Our employees and contractors who provide services related to our information systems are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any Personal Information held by us. However, we will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access and use of your Personal Information.
