Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
We may analyse your personal information to create a profile of your interests and preferences so we can contact you with information relevant to you. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively.
