Third Party Services Working on Our Behalf
We may pass your information to our third party service providers, or other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example processing payments and providing sales/technical support). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes.
Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond the Radio Future Africa network for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

Radio Future Africa’s infrastructure is managed by multiple service providers (For example, Amazon Web Services). However they do not have access to any personal information and are prohibited to selling or passing on any stored data.

Security of our data is important to us and we take every possible reasonable measure to prevent against loss, damage, theft or misuse where possible.
Any data processed by one of the third parties working on our behalf is also sent over an encrypted SSL connection. Third parties are contracted to provide a high level of security on their systems.
