Your personal information will be kept confidential and will only be used to support our customer relationship with you including the provision of products, services and support to you and, where applicable, your university, college or school.

However, you understand and agree that our network management and monitoring activities involve us in reactive and implicit monitoring of, amongst other things your transmissions.
