Examples include (without limitation) hosting our web servers, analysing Data, providing marketing assistance, and providing customer service. These third parties will have access to your Data as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not use that Data for any other purpose.

5. WHERE WE STORE YOUR DATA
Data contributed by or collected from you may be stored, processed and transferred in the United Kingdom, the European Economic Area, or any other country in which we or our affiliates, business partners and/or suppliers maintain facilities. By submitting your Data, you agree to this transfer, storing and/or processing. If we transfer your Data outside the European Economic Area, we will comply with Data Protection Act 1998 by ensuring any such country has adequate data protection processes in place.
6. HOW WE SECURE YOUR DATA
We take appropriate technical and organisational measures to guard against unauthorised or unlawful processing of your Data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your Data. While no system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by our Alpha Services and Alpha Platform reduce our vulnerability to security problems to a level appropriate to the type of Data involved.
However, it remains your responsibility to:
(a) protect against unauthorised access and/or use of your Account;
(b) ensure no-one else uses your Account while your device is logged on to our Alpha Platform (for example, by logging on to your device through a mobile, Wi-Fi or share access connection you are using);
(c) log off or exit from your Account when not using it;
(d) keep your password or other access information secret. Your password and log in details are personal to you and should not be given to anyone else and/or used to provide shared access, for example, over a network. You should use a password which is unique to your use of your Account (do not use the same password across other sites or email accounts); and
(e) maintain good internet security. If your email account is compromised this could allow access to your Account. You must tell us immediately after you become suspicious or aware of this by emailing our Operations team at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can try to help you keep your account secure and if necessary warn anyone else who could be affected.
If you have asked us to share Data with third party sites (such as Facebook), their servers may not be secure. We also use third parties to help us optimise our website flow, content and advertising. Note that, despite the measures taken by us and the third parties we engage, the internet is not secure. As a result, others may nevertheless unlawfully intercept and/or access private transmissions and/or Data.
7. CORRECTING / UPDATING YOUR DATA
You can change or modify Data you have previously provided to us if it is incorrect or out of date. You can do this by sending the request to our Operations team at email@example.com.
You may opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us by the following means:
(a) contact our Operations team at firstname.lastname@example.org;
(b) follow the instructions included in each communication or newsletter;
(c) use the Unsubscribe function; or
(d) mail the request to us at 28 Wapping High Street, 84 Cinnabar Wharf East, London, United Kingdom, E1W 1NG.
Please remember that if you change your preference it may take a short time for those preferences to become effective.
When you share Data about you on Alpha Platform, it may be indexable by search engines (e.g. Google) which may mean that the Data becomes public. For example, the public part of your profile may be indexable.
9. LINKING TO 3rd-PARTY WEBSITES
Our Alpha Services and Alpha Platform may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of 3rd-parties e.g. websites of our affiliates, business partners etc. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies.
