WHO DO WE DISCLOSE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO?
It is sometimes necessary for us to pass on some of your personal information and your requested delivery information to other organisations which are contracted by us to assist in providing some products and services. We also may disclose personal information to our related entities. Some of our related entities and service providers may be located overseas (most likely the USA and the European Union). If any of that personal information is not de-personalised before it is provided to them, those entities will be required by us to abide by any express choices that you may have made regarding the use of your personal information. For example, we will not share your personal information with any of our related entities for their marketing purposes if you have elected not to receive any marketing and product information from Now and Forever.

If you do not wish to receive additional information on our products and services or on the products and services of our related entities or business partners, you can request us not to send that additional information to you by contacting us as detailed below. If you supply us with your personal information via our website, you may utilise a function on that website to “opt out” from receiving additional information at the time you supply us with your personal information via our website. You will also have the opportunity to utilise a function linked to any marketing or promotional emails that you receive to “opt out” from receiving further additional information.
WHAT ABOUT WEBSITES OF THIRD PARTIES?
Our website may contain links to or from other websites (“3rd party sites”) but that does not amount to an endorsement by us of any of those other websites or their content. We do not take responsibility for the privacy practices of the operators of 3rd party websites and you should check the privacy practices of those 3rd party websites.
HOW DO WE STORE PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We hold your personal information in a combination of hard-copy and electronic files. Hard-copy files are kept on secure premises away from the general public. Our electronic records are kept in a secure system with password protection and restricted access both internally and from external sources.
We take steps to protect the security of the personal information we hold from both internal and external threats by:
1.regularly assessing the risk of misuse, interference, loss and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure of that information;
2.taking measures to address those risks, for example, we keep a record of when someone has added, changed or deleted personal information held in our electronic databases and regularly check that staff only access those records when they need to.
We use a high level of commercially available encryption for financial transactions online and implement secure procedures for disposal of personal information when we no longer need it (for example de-identifying or destroying the personal information).
