The only other information automatically provided to us is the type of computer and operating system you are using. Your browser automatically supplies us with this information.
4. In some of our email communications, we may use a device called a “clickthrough URL.” When you click on one of these URLs, you pass through our system before arriving at the website that is your true destination.

We do not share this data with anyone, and we make no attempt to match clickthroughs to particular email addresses.

Authorised third parties, including external service providers, with permitted access to your information are specifically required to apply appropriate security measures that may be necessary to safeguard the personal data being processed from unauthorised or accidental disclosure, loss or destruction and from any unlawful forms of processing.
