These parties may be based in countries and territories outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Please note that some of these non-EEA countries (including the United States) have legal systems that currently are not regarded as providing a level of legal protection for personal information which meets the standards required under EU data protection law.

You are responsible for taking reasonable precautions to protect yourself against fraud and other security risks (such as phishing, computer viruses and malware).

4.5 A password (or secure log-in) may be necessary to access areas of our site.
