How we protect your personal information

We are committed to ensuring that your personal data is stored securely. We actively protect against the loss, unauthorised disclosure or access to your personal data through the adoption of up-to-date industry standard procedures and technology to keep personal data as safe and secure as possible. Space Syntax Limited has arrangements in place with third parties some of whom operate outside of the EU. Please note that your personal data may therefore be accessible to these parties in the course of their provision of services to Space Syntax Limited.

Space Syntax Limited will not sell or share your personal information for commercial or marketing purposes and will not disclose your personal information unless required to do so for legal purposes.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Whilst we will do our utmost to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site and therefore any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we use strict control procedures and security measures to prevent unauthorised access.
