Protection of information

We understand the importance of security and protection of your data and personal information. We take all practical steps to secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. However, it is not possible for any organisation to guarantee that 100% security will be maintained at all times.

We will maintain all personal information and data in controlled environments that are secured against unauthorized access. All data transferred between you and MYPN’s servers is encrypted. However, the internet is not in itself a secure environment, and we recommend that you should only enter or import data to the servers within a secure environment.

We may continue to store and use the information you provide to MYPN or you impart into the MYPN website after the purpose for which the information was collected is completed.
