We will take appropriate steps to ensure that transfers of personal information are in accordance with applicable law and carefully managed to protect your privacy rights and interests and transfers are limited to countries which are recognised as providing an adequate level of legal protection or where we can be satisfied that alternative arrangement are in place to protect your privacy rights.

The security of your information is paramount and a critical consideration for Working Software in the provision of its services to you.
We work hard to protect you and Working Software from unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold. Measures we take include:
placing confidentiality requirements and restricted access protocols on our staff members and service providers who need access to your information in order to process it to provide our services to you;
destroying your personal information if it is no longer needed to provide you with our service;
destroying logging or other transactional information that may incidentally contain personal information in accordance with our schedules to clear such information;
following strict security procedures in the access, storage and disclosure of your personal information to prevent unauthorised access to it; and
using secure communication transmission software (known as "secure sockets layer" or "SSL") that encrypts all information you input on our website before it is sent to us. SSL is an industry standard encryption protocol and this ensure that the information is reasonably protected against unauthorised interception.
