Privacy statement

What is a privacy statement for?

OutSec Services Ltd is registered under the Data Protection Act and of course, acts in accordance with all the regulations laid down there. So why make a Privacy Statement?

We’ve prepared this Privacy Statement to make specific reassurances that your information is kept confidential. This document will run through the different kinds of information collected and stored by OutSec and explain what we will use it for. OutSec has a strong moral and ethical stance on the issue of privacy. Our philosophy is that you can trust OutSec with your work and we will never divulge any information concerning it or you to any other party.

Your personal details
To register for an account with OutSec, you are required to supply your company name, your name, address and email address. This information will be used for compiling the reports that make up the OutSec service and for invoicing purposes, as well as being added to the OutSec customer database. From time to time, we may send you a newsletter updating you on the service or advising of important customer service announcements. You can request not to receive these newsletters by writing to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . We may also ask you to participate in an email questionnaire in order to allow OutSec to improve our service levels.

OutSec will not pass your personal details on to any third party.

Other information we do not collect
We DO NOT use IP addresses to analyse trends, administer the site or track user’s movements.

Who can access my information?
When you set up your account, a password is created for your account. As long as you keep your password secret and secure, your files will be protected. You can choose or amend your password manually by calling Technical Support on 0870 243 0295 but make it hard to guess! We thoroughly recommend that you chose a meaningless combination of numbers and letters eg: di3i892q. You will be surprised how easily you remember it after typing it in half a dozen times or you can get your browser to store it for you.

Employees of OutSec do have access to the database and therefore to your information. This is vital for the provision of the service to you and is limited to those people who specifically require access to the data and are fully aware of any and all privacy issues.

We will not share information about you or your work with any other party.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the OutSec site.
