The WH Software and InstaCode Live websites are frequently trawled and indexed by search engines such as Google. Please note that website content written and submitted by a member, will often be indexed and will therefore be listed within these search engine directories. This type of website content may contain the personal information of the member who submitted the review, if this constitutes part of the website content.
The indexing and retrieval of such site content within search engines such as Google is beyond the control of WH Software.
3. Mail (electronic and postal)
After your membership, from time to time we may contact you regarding offers or promotions that may be of interest to you.

We recommend that users review the privacy policies of external websites before submitting personal information to the operators of those websites.
6. Data quality
WH Software wishes to ensure that all personal information we collect and use is accurate, complete and up-to-date, and so we provide a facility under "My Account" for users to change, amend and update their personal details. It is the responsibility of each user to make sure this information is accurate and complete.
7. Data security
WH Software stores personal information in a secure environment accessed only by authorised persons. WH Software uses generally accepted security standards to protect personal information it holds from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification and disclosure.
Where credit card details are transmitted, WH Software uses 128-bit encryption through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. The common name of encryption certificate may be that of either WH Software or WH Software's official hosting partner. This encryption process helps ensure that the information you give us is protected against unauthorised access. If you have any queries concerning encryption then you should please contact our Member Services team.
We have implemented technology and security features, as well as strict internal guidelines to safeguard the privacy of your personal information from unauthorised access. We will continue to look to enhance these features as technology changes and new technology becomes available. While we make every effort to ensure that your information is secure, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
WH Software will keep your personal information for only as long as necessary for use in connection with the purpose for which it was collected.
