    1. By submitting data or information to us and/or using the Portal, you consent to the use, processing and transfer of your personal information as described in this clause 11 and you warrant that all data and information provided by you is complete, true and accurate.

It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our or our Group member's suppliers or subcontractors (for example, the third party supplier which hosts the Portal on our behalf).
    6. Where personal data is transferred to and stored in a country not determined by the European Commission as providing adequate levels of protection for personal data, we take steps to provide appropriate safeguards to protect your personal data, including entering into standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission, obliging recipients to protect your personal data. If you would like further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data outside of the EEA, please contact us using the details set out at the end of these Terms of Use.
    7. We shall take appropriate technical and organisational measures against unauthorised or unlawful processing of your personal information or its accidental loss, destruction or damage.

    12. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted over the Internet; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use appropriate procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
    1. We aim to update the Portal regularly, and may delete, suspend, revise or otherwise change the content and/or services it provides (or any part thereof) at any time in our sole discretion.

    1. Nothing in these Terms of Use:
      1. affects our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence; fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited under any applicable law; or
      2. excludes our obligation to adhere to the rules and regulations imposed on us by the FCA, which will apply at all times.
    2. Except to the extent otherwise expressly set out in any Retail Client Terms of Business you have entered into with Buck Consultants or as set out in clause 13.1 above, we, the other members of our Group, our Group's officers and employees and all third parties engaged by us, hereby expressly exclude liability for any losses or damage however caused incurred by any Authorised User in connection with the Portal and/or the Services, or in connection with the use, inability to use, or results of the use of the Portal and/or the Services, any websites linked to it and any materials or information posted on it, whether they are directly associated with the incident that causes you to claim or not.

    1. From time to time the Portal may also include links to other third party websites or resources. These links are intended to provide further information only and are not intended to signify that we endorse such websites and/or resources or related products or services or are in any way affiliated with the linked websites or have investigated, verified or monitored any of them.
    2. Such linked websites or resources are independent from Buck Consultants and we have no control over their content.

It is your responsibility to check the terms and conditions of any other websites or resources you may visit and you use them and the products and/or services made available through them at your own risk.
    3. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies or the protection and privacy of any information that you provide or which may be collected from you (whether automatically or otherwise).

If any such provision is or becomes illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any respect under the law of any jurisdiction that shall not affect or impair the legality, validity or enforceability in that jurisdiction of the other provisions of these Terms of Use (and the provision itself shall apply with the minimum modification necessary to make it legal, valid and enforceable), or of that or any provision in any other jurisdiction.
    2. A failure or delay by us in enforcing compliance with any provision of these Terms of Use shall not be a waiver of that or any other provision of these Terms of Use.
