Who we share information with
- The NWG Network does not rent or sell mailing details to any third party. However, occasionally the NWG NETWORK works with partner organisations or companies to send you information on other ways in which you can support the NWG NETWORK. However we will not simply add your name to another organisations database.
- The NWG network may from time to time need to use the services of an Internet Provider. For financial and technical reasons these may be sited outside of the European Economical Area. Use of data by the Internet Service Provider on behalf of NWG Network is regulated and safeguarded by both international procedures and legal agreements to comply with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998. In particular we wish to ensure that data is adequately protected in the Provider’s country of business, as obliged by the 8th Data Protection Principle.
