How we protect your personal information
We take great care with your PI, never sharing it with other organisations for marketing purposes.
We take all reasonable steps to safeguard the PI in our possession, vetting and training staff, ensuring our records are kept in secure cabinets and never left unguarded on desks etc.
We never disclose your PI to third parties without your permission.
The MIR is printed in the USA and posted from the USA under the control of the Maoz International office in Dallas, Texas. Because the USA is outside the European Economic area and not subject to the EU data protection regulations, we have put in place a contract with the USA office to ensure they provide the appropriate level of protection. The same applies to email address lists.
