  • A team of independent security experts regularly tests our website.
  • We may contact you by telephone to check the details of changes you have requested online - it is important that you keep us informed if you change your number, and if possible provide more than one number on which you can be contacted.
  • We do not use email to communicate confidential account information to you except where you specifically request and agree to this.
  • We will verify your identity before disclosing confidential information over the telephone or re-setting your password.
  • Your session will time out after a period of keyboard inactivity.
  • Access to your online account will be locked out after three failed access attempts. You will need to call us to reset your account.
