Payment and Newsletter Processes

We use PayPal and MailChimp to provide us with services which are needed to run our business and help assist us with our work and who process your information for us on our behalf. All of these companies are located in the United States.

Your information will be shared with these service providers where necessary to provide you with the service you have requested, whether that is accessing our website, joining our mailing list or paying for
conference/seminar tickets from us.

If you would like further information about the identities of our service providers, however, please contact us directly via our contact form or by email and we will provide you with such information where you have a
legitimate reason for requesting it (where we have shared your information with such service providers, for example).
