Privacy - Introduction

Meridian Contract Services is committed to safeguarding your privacy. We believe that the best way to protect the privacy of users of www.meridianfacilities.com, www.meridianfacilities.co.uk and any other Meridian Contract Services controlled website (each a ‘Website’) is to tell you what information we gather and ensure that you understand and consent to Meridian Contract Services uses of information you provide.

We may occasionally modify the Privacy Policy and will post the revised Privacy Policy on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we use or disclose it. We may let you know via the homepage when this happens but you should check the policy frequently to read the latest Privacy Policy. Please note that the Website contains links to and from other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites whether or not we provide you with a link from this Website to such third party Websites.

Security

We are committed to using our best efforts to maintaining the security of your personal information.

Therefore, you assume that risk by using the Website.
