By using 26.org.uk, you consent to your information being collecte and used by these companies.

We aren’t responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of any other organisations, including other sites, services and applications that are linked to from 26.org.uk.
We do all we can to keep the personal information you give us secure, but no security measures are impenetrable, and it’s impossible to guarantee that data transmission will never be intercepted. It’s your responsibility to keep your password confidential, but any information you share online can potentially be intercepted and misused by naughty people. In other words, we can’t guarantee complete security if you give us your personal information.
