together users and their site usage characteristics according to user
characteristics, but does not reveal individual Users or User ID’s (or provide

likelihood who might be the specific individual in question).
We may also share your personal information with suitably authorised
representatives of law enforcement agencies or financial regulatory bodies, if
reasonably requested to do so, and with others if required by law to do so. In

requests for such information that might deemed appropriate in some
jurisdictions but not in others. Please also bear in mind that as a result of
anti-terrorism, crime and money laundering legislation, we may be required by
law to obtain satisfactory evidence of the identity of our customers. We may
also be obliged to disclose knowledge or suspicion of money laundering or
terrorist activities or dealing with proceeds of crime and in particular
circumstances that obligation will override other duties of confidentiality we
might implicitly or expressly be subject to. Moreover, we may not be permitted
to inform our customers that we have made such a disclosure or the reasons for
your browser, although some of the features of our services may not function
properly as a result, or the quality of service you may receive may be
diminished in some other way.
We will not collect or use "sensitive personal" information for
supplementary notices, unless we have obtained your prior consent.
"Sensitive personal" information includes information we know to be
related to confidential medical information, racial or ethnic origins,
political or religious beliefs or sexuality and tied to personal information.

purpose(s) it was originally captured/processed for.

ensure or warrant the security of any information which you send to us, and you
do so at your own risk. If during log-in you are redirected to a secure
Nematrian server (referenced by ‘https’ in the browser address field) then,
where practical, your subsequent interaction with that server during the same
site session, including transfer of sensitive information if any, will be
encrypted until you log out, to minimise the risk of interception during

of your information and you should take all normal personal precautions such
as, but not limited to, not sharing passwords, not reusing passwords on
multiple sites, closing browsers and not using public networks (e.g. internet
cafes, etc.) when transmitting sensitive information.
A cookie is a small text file placed on your computer by a web browser, which
has been sent by a web server. It is essentially an ‘identification card’
relating to you. The main purpose of our cookies is to identify you when you
visit our website. Each time your browser requests a web page from our server,
the browser sends the information in the text file back to the server and lets
