We collect your personal information strictly for the purposes of: 

(a) identifying you as a customer and processing your registration and any changes to it; 

(b) communicating with you in accordance with clause 2.1 (d) and, if relevant, for the promotional purposes set out in clause 2.1(e); and 

(c) internal record keeping and administrative purposes. 

We will not use any of your personal information for direct marketing campaigns, or for any market research purposes.

We will take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse, interference, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. We will keep all personal information about you, including hardcopy and electronic information, safe and secure in accordance with reasonable security standards. If your personal information is no longer needed by us for any of the purposes identified above, and we are not required by law to retain it, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or render it incapable of identifying you.
