How we protect your data

Your account password is stored as a cryptographic hash. This means that even if our database were compromised, your password would remain a secret.

Our website only uses secure TLS connections with a certificate signed by a trusted certificate authority meaning you can be confident that data you provide is coming to us and not to someone trying to impersonate us.
