It seems a lot of 'computer speak' like this forum, for your comment I must have the wrong one, sorry.

They seem to be OK, they have been in operation for a few years, if they were 'fly by night' they'd be gone by now. I think the only thing that may concern me is that you are likely to be spammed. This is from their terms of service:
