Consequently, CENI staff members have access to your information. Occasionally and when necessary, CENI will share this information with Third Party Services.

What personal information do we give to third parties?
Your privacy is important to us and so we will never sell or disclose your personal information to a third party for the use of the information for other purposes than described in this policy.

We may give your personal information to our trusted service partners for delivering services to you. For instance, for the purposes of marketing, finance, advertising and processing payment.

Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf

We may pass your information to our third party service providers, agents subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example send you mailings). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have 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 beyond the CENI 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.

Third Party Product Providers we work in association with

We work closely with various third party product providers to bring you a range of quality and reliable services designed to meet up with your needs. In this case the Third Party is the data controller of your information and therefore we advise you to read their Privacy Policy.  These third party product providers will share your information with us which we will use in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Where is your personal information stored?

We keep the personal information we collect about you in secure environments. Your personal information is protected from unauthorised access, disclosure, use, alteration or destruction by any organisation or individuals. As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Union (“EU”). Some countries outside of the European Economic Area have laws and policies which do not guarantee the same protections as within the European Economic Area. Where your personal information is transferred outside of the European Economic Area we make sure that your personal information is protected in the same way as if it were here and we take all reasonably necessary steps to ensure that the data is kept private and held securely.
