Period of Grace
We will endeavour to update your records as promptly as practical; however you may receive communications for a transitional period whilst we process your records.
This website takes every precaution to protect and maintain the security of your information. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, as will be the case for most of the time that a user is browsing the web. However, the Internet is an open system and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.

We are not responsible for the privacy practices nor do we accept any liability in connection with the content of such websites. We may use third party advertisements on our site.
