If you are a parent or guardian and your child under 13 (or other ages as appropriate by country) may have provided personal data to our website, please contact us as set forth in Section 18. The age of consent for proessing personal data in the United Kingdom (the “UK”) is 13 and such age varies from country to county.

We collect your personal data in a number of ways.
If you are accessing our services from the UK or the European Economic Area (the “EEA”), please be aware that under data protection laws applicable in the UK and the EEA, we must have a legal basis to process your personal data. The legal bases on which we may process your data are set out below.
We may use your personal data for the following purposes:
You may receive offers and/or promotional emails from us. Where we are legally required to obtain your consent to provide you with marketing materials, we will only provide you with such marketing materials if you have provided consent for us to do so.
If you want to unsubscribe from mailing lists or any marketing, you should look for and follow the instructions we have provided in our relevant communications to you.
If you do not wish to receive marketing communications from us, you can at any time contact us as per Section 18 to request that such communications cease. If you choose to unsubscribe from any or all mailings, we may retain information sufficient to identify you so that we can honour your request.
Where you opt out of receiving marketing communications, we may still process your personal data for other required purposes, as specified in Section 6 above.
We will not retain your personal data for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data is processed. This means that your data will only be retained for as long as it is still required to provide you with services or is necessary for legal reasons. When calculating the appropriate retention period for your data, we consider the nature and sensitivity of the data, the purposes for which we are processing the data, and any applicable statutory retention periods. Using these criteria, we regularly review the personal data which we hold and the purposes for which it is held and processed.
When we determine that personal data can no longer be retained (or where you request us to delete your data in accordance with your right to do so (please see Section 14 below for more information)), we ensure that this data is securely deleted or destroyed.
Please note that, in some circumstances we may decide to retain your personal data for research or statistical purposes and, in such circumstances, we will anonymise your data before retaining it.
It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
In order to protect your personal data, we put in place appropriate organisational and technical security measures. These measures include ensuring our internal IT systems are suitably secure, and implementing procedures to deal with any suspected data breach.
In the unlikely event of a data breach, we will take steps to mitigate any loss or destruction of data and, if required, will notify you and any applicable authority of such a breach.
Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal data, you will appreciate that the transmission of data over the Internet (including by e-mail) is never completely secure. We endeavour to protect personal data, but we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to or by us.

If you would like more information regarding these third party service providers please contact us using the information in Section 18.
Our business and that of the third parties we use to deliver our services to you is international in nature. If you are accessing our services from the UK, your personal data will be transferred to countries outside of the EEA, including the United States of America. In addition, your personal data may be transferred outside the United States to our other offices or service providers with locations in other countries.
Certain countries have rules relating to the transfer of personal data across borders and require us to ensure that your personal data remains protected according to appropriate standards.
