We operate online forums on our websites to assist you in using our products, services and events and to allow you to discuss technical issues and share your experiences. Any information that you provide in these public forums is not confidential and may be read, collected and used by other forum users.

We use appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect Your Information from misuse, unauthorised, accidental or unlawful access or disclosure, loss, alteration, damage or destruction. These measures include but are not limited to organisational, physical and technological safeguards such as processing data within secure facilities, utilising end point protection and encryption tools whilst ensuring our employees undergo mandatory privacy and security training.
