We may also use 'cookies' or other similar tracking technologies on our website that help us track your website usage and remember your preferences. Cookies are small files that store information on your computer, TV, mobile phone or other device.

To keep your information secure, we safeguard our systems in the following ways:
Anti-virus protection stops threats before they reach our computer network.
Firewalls prevent unauthorised access to our network.
Secure transmissions maintain confidential information. Encryption technology such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is utilised when sending information between you and Seiko. Security is achieved through:
