7. Links to third party websites
We cannot be held responsible for the privacy policies of third party websites and we advise users to read the privacy policies of other websites before registering any personal data.
In cases when we use external websites provided by other organisations such as Twitter or Facebook, then we would ask you to consult their privacy policies.
8. Security and payment card information
We recognise the concerns that many people have about giving personal information online. These are the measures that we take to secure your information whilst using our web based services.
All “gorillas.org” web pages that require you to enter personal information are in secure format.
Our web servers use strong encryption and only store information for a temporary period. Once you have fully submitted your information, any temporary information is purged from our systems.
The Gorilla Organization does not store any sensitive payment card data in our systems. We ensure that our IT systems do not directly collect or store your payment card information; for example the full 16 digit numbers on the front of the card or the security code on the back.Our online payment solutions are carried out using a “payment gateway” which is a direct connection to a payment service provided by a bank. This means that when you input card data into the payment page, you are communicating directly with the bank and the bank passes your payment to us, this means that your payment card information is handled by the bank and not processed or held by us.
