6. Security and where we store your personal data

We are committed to protecting the security of your personal data. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal data from unauthorised access and use. As effective as modern security practices are, no physical or electronic security system is entirely secure. We cannot guarantee the complete security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. We have implemented strict internal guidelines to ensure that your privacy is safeguarded at every level of our organisation. We will continue to revise policies and implement additional security features as new technologies become available. Where we have given you a password which enables you to access certain parts of our App, you are responsible for keeping that password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We will never store your passwords in plain text and all passwords we store are hashed and salted using the most secure hashing algorithms.

Once we receive your personal data, we use appropriate security measures to seek to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure.

Your data is stored in Dublin, Ireland and will not be moved outside of the European Economic Area (EEC). We will store your personal data only for as long as necessary for the purposes of providing access to our App and related services to you; as required by law, and for the exercise or defence of legal claims.

However, if we make material changes to this Privacy Statement, we will notify you by means of a prominent notice on the App prior to the change becoming effective. Please review this Privacy Statement periodically for updates.
