INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

All material contained on the site are proprietary to Anglo Pacific Consultants (London) Limited, or its third party licensors. All intellectual property rights on the site are reserved to Anglo Pacific Consultants (London) Limited or its third party licensors. APC grants you a limited licence to access any part of the site you are authorised to access; and print off pages from it.

SECURITY

APC takes security very seriously and uses a security system which we believe to be one of the strongest available to protect your communications with us. Whenever you fill in a form, such as a request for a quote, it is automatically protected using software called a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) between your computer and ours. SSL works in the following ways:

  • It prevents impersonation – you can tell that you are using a genuine SSL site by the padlock symbol at the bottom of the screen. Clicking on the padlock will reveal our Registration Certificate that is issued by a third party.
  • It encrypts data – as soon as your computer has recognised our computer they encrypt all information that is passed between them. Data encryption means that no one else can read or change your information as it travels over the Internet.
  • It prevents scrambling – SSL uses a Message Authentication Code (MAC) to prevent anyone tampering with our Internet site. Your computer will always check this code before it takes a message from us. This means that if anyone tried to interfere with a message, your computer would not recognise the code and would alert you. The Internet cannot be guaranteed as being secure and accordingly we do not offer any warranties or assurances in this respect. Similarly, whilst we may communicate with you via e-mail or via the QuoteMac site itself, we cannot accept any liability for the security or transmission of such e-mail or internet-based communications.

INTERNET AND E-MAIL COMMUNICATIONS

Messages sent over the Internet (including e-mail) cannot be guaranteed to be completely secure as they are subject to possible interception, monitoring, delay, loss or alteration. APC are not responsible for any such messages nor liable to you or anyone else for any damages or otherwise in connection with any messages sent by you to us or any third party or any messages sent by or appearing to be sent by us or any third party to you over the Internet (including e-mail). You should not include any sensitive or confidential information in such messages.

OUR MONITORING OF COMMUNICATIONS

To help us improve our service and in the interest of security, APC may monitor and/or record communications (whether over the Internet, telephone or otherwise) between you and us.
