5. Questions:

Proof of identity will be required before any information or personal data can be disclosed.
6. Data Security:
  We consider that the protection of all personal data we process is an important responsibility and we comply in this respect with the terms of the DPA.

We implement data security safeguards based upon generally accepted industry standards to protect personal data from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, alteration, or loss.

Nonetheless, no data security techniques are 100% effective and where information is transmitted over the Internet, there is always some element of risk involved in sending personal data. We cannot and do not therefore guarantee the security of personal data.
7. Applicable law and Jurisdiction
  English law shall apply to this Privacy Policy and you and we submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts in relation to any dispute which may arise from or in relation to it.
