Who has access to your information?

We do however use certain Third-Party Service Providers for the purpose of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to send email campaigns). When we use third party service providers, we disclose only the information that is necessary to deliver the service and there is a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.
When you are using our secure online registration pages, your registration is processed by a third-party payment processor (if a fee is applicable), who specialises in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions. If you have any questions regarding secure transactions, please contact us.
You have a choice about whether or not you wish to receive information from us. If you do not want to receive direct marketing communications from us about the DigitalDNA, then you can select your choices by ticking the relevant boxes situated on the form on which we collect your information.
