Non sensitive details (your email address et cetera) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we have robust documented and regularly reviewed processes and policies in place to protect its security on our systems
