We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, women in a postal area). We may make use of the personal data we have collected from you to enable us to comply with our advertisers' wishes by displaying their advertisement to that target audience.

It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff maybe engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services.

Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

The site includes features to allow you to share information with other users and on other selected social networking websites and apps. Ensure when using these features that you do not submit any personal data that you do not want to be seen, collected or used by other users.
