The Services are not intended for persons under the age of 18. We require that only persons 18 years of age or older use the Services.

Where we store your personal data

We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Once we have received your information, we use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
We restrict access of your personal information to those employees of Proteégé who have a business reason for knowing such information. We continuously educate and train our employees about the importance of confidentiality and privacy of customer information.
