Does anyone other than EDO NQ collect information from EDO NQ website?
Except as stated in this Policy or unless you are informed at the time of collection of information, only EDO NQ collects personal information from the EDO NQ website. Does EDO NQ share user information? EDO NQ will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to any third party. In the event that we co-organise or co-host a specific event with a third party, and you register for that event online, the information that you enter when you register, and only that information, may be shared with that third party if we inform you prior to online registration that we will do so. The only other circumstance in which a third party will have access to your personally identifiable information is where that third party is managing and/or maintaining the EDO NQ's computer network, website, databases or sending communications from EDO NQ, on behalf of and as an agent for EDO NQ .

What other security precautions should users take?
No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect users' personal information, EDO NQ cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to it or from its online products or services, and users do so at their own risk. Once the EDO NQ receives your transmission, it makes every effort to ensure its security on its systems.
