Third Party Relationships

We have relationships with experts and services companies throughout the UK and internationally. We may pass your information to a narrow and select group of third party providers, subcontractors or other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to process our payments or within a consortium to deliver our expertise and training). You can recognise these by joint branding (such as Sussex Innovation Centre, University of Sussex, etc).

When we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver or support that service 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 InterAnalysis network unless 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.

If you have any questions about whether certain information, content or services pertain to us, or are “powered” by one of our partners, please contact us at info@tradesift.com.

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 is treated securely.

We do not store sensitive information such as credit or debit card details.  For details on the minimal information we hold on you, see What information do we collect from you?

We operate secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection. We have security measures in place to attempt to protect against loss, misuse and alteration of our user data under our control.

Only certain employees have access to the information you provide to us. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur, we go to significant lengths to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.
