How do we protect your information?
We recognise that online security and data protection is a vital importance for our customers, so it is important to us that you have confidence in the way we protect your personal data before you use our Services. We are committed to employing security measures to protect your information from access by unauthorised persons and to prevent accidental or unlawful processing, disclosure, destruction, loss, alteration and damage. Our approach is focused on preventing risks. As the security of some communications via the internet is not completely secure, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you disclose using your internet connection. You accept the inherent security implications of using the internet and The Worm Bin will accept no liability for any direct, consequential, incidental, indirect, or punitive losses or damages arising out of such an occurrence.
