The Website is intended for and directed to adults. The Website is specifically not for use by any children under the age of 16. Accordingly, we do not intend to collect Personal Information from anyone we know to be under the age of 16. No information should be submitted to the Website by users under the age of 16. If a child under the age of 16 submits personal information to the Website, we delete the information as soon as we discover it was provided by a child under the age of 13 and we do not use it for any purpose. MSI Distributors LTD encourages parents to take an active role in their children's use of the Internet, and to inform them of the potential dangers of providing information about themselves over the Internet.

A cookie consists of a piece of text sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
We may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on the website. We will use the session cookies to: keep track of you whilst you navigate the website; and other uses. We will use the persistent cookies to: enable our website to recognise you when you visit; and other uses.
Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
Our advertisers/payment services providers may also send you cookies.
Our advertising services providers may send you cookies for the purpose of enabling the service of advertisements based on your previous visits to our website.
Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.
(5) International data transfers
Information which you provide may be transferred to countries (including the United States, Japan and Australia) which do not have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the European Economic Area.
In addition, personal information that you submit for publication on the website will be published on the internet and may be available, via the internet, around the world. We cannot prevent the use or misuse of such information by others.
You expressly agree to such transfers of personal information.
(6) Security of your personal information
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure (password- and firewall- protected) servers. All electronic transactions you make to or receive from us will be encrypted using SSL technology.

You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will not ask you for your password (except when you log in to the website).
An IP address is a number that is assigned automatically to your computer whenever you use the World Wide Web. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. MSI Distributors LTD may collect IP addresses for system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers and partners and to audit the use of the Website. When visitors request pages from the Website, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We typically do not link IP addresses to Personal Information. This means that a visitor's session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a visitor if required by law, when disclosure is required to maintain the security and integrity of the Website or to protect any user's security or the security of other persons, consistent with applicable laws.
To protect your privacy, MSI Distributors LTD has adopted the following principles: Notice, Choice, Security, and Access/Accuracy.
You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to MSI Distributors LT. If you choose not to provide the requested Personal Information, you can still visit most parts of the Website, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services that involve MSI Distributors LTD’s interaction with you. If you chose to have a relationship with MSI Distributors LTD, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.
Wherever your Personal Information may be held within MSI Distributors LTD or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the Personal Information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we have taken appropriate steps to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or otherwise warrant the security of any information you provide to us or from the Website, and therefore you use the Website at your own risk.
To the extent that you do provide us with Personal Information, MSI Distributors LTD wishes to maintain accurate Personal Information. Where we collect Personal Information from you on the Website, our goal is to provide a means of contacting MSI Distributors LTD should you need to update or correct that Personal Information.
Third Party Services
Third parties provide certain services available on the Website on MSI Distributors LTD behalf. MSI Distributors LTD may provide information, including Personal Information that MSI Distributors LTD collects on the Website to third-party service providers to help us deliver programs, products, information, and services. Service providers are also an important means by which MSI Distributors LTD maintains the Website and mailing lists. MSI Distributors LTD will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third-party service providers are obligated to protect your Personal Information on MSI Distributors LTD’s behalf.
MSI Distributors LTD does not intend to transfer Personal Information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to protect your Personal Information unless such transfer is legally required. Similarly, it is against MSI Distributors LTD’s policy to sell Personal Information collected through the Website without your consent.
