Data Storage

By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Security

We realize how important it is to securely store any information that you provide. www.littleemerald.com maintains the highest levels of security. Our site uses high-level SSL encryption technology, the most advanced security software currently available for online transactions. You can therefore rest assured that we take the privacy and security of your payment and personal details very seriously.

You can tell whether a page is secure as 'https' will replace the 'http' at the front of the www.littleemerald.com in your browser address window. A small locked padlock will also appear in the bottom bar of your browser window.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of www.littleemerald.com you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

We do appreciate that remembering passwords can be tricky, but setting effective and secure passwords on all the sites you use is vital in combating possible fraudulent activity using your personal details.

It’s best to avoid using the same password for each of your online accounts, because if a criminal gains access to it, all your accounts could be at risk. Multiple passwords keep you safer.

When you set a password, it’s a good idea to use a mix of numbers and characters, and something that’s very personal to you. Most sites these days will set a minimum number of characters to use, but do avoid using obvious phrases like “password”, or your name, or phone number.

It’s a good idea to change your passwords on a regular basis, especially for sites you use frequently and which involve financial transactions.

If you ever get a request to reveal your password for an online site, don’t respond as legitimate sites and services won’t ask you to send them passwords via email. You may be tempted to share passwords with close family, but do keep in mind there’s always a risk they could pass information on inadvertently or share it with someone else.

At any time you can re-set your password on www.littleemerald.com via the “forgotten password” link on the login page where we will email you instructions to re-set your password. You can always change your password via the Account menu once you have logged in. It’s a good idea at this point to change your password to something that’s as secure as possible.

For more information on online safety and passwords, there are a number of useful websites such as:

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to www.littleemerald.com and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
