TSRG is intended for general use and does not knowingly collect personal data from children. We take specific steps to protect the privacy of children by not allowing minors to sign up to the site unless parental or legal guardian consent is provided. Parents and legal guardians are responsible for the activities of their children online.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the TSRG site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Given that the Internet is a global environment, using it to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. This means for instance that data you pass to us may be transferred to and processed outside the European Economic Area (EEA). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, amongst other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this policy. By communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way.
