Third-Party Service Providers working on our behalf

We may pass your information to our third-party service providers (such as Campaign Monitor), agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf. However, when we use third-party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service: 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 ECI network 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.

 

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.

In some cases, they will be acting as a data controller of your information and therefore we advise you to read their Privacy Policy.
