Where third parties are contracted to provide a service to Kondinin Group members such as bulk mailing houses, a confidentiality agreement is entered into between Kondinin Group and the third party.
Kondinin Group collects personal information about members for the purpose of providing them with a product or service of their choice and for the ongoing administration and management of that product or service. Kondinin Group carefully protects member information to ensure privacy is maintained.
We only collect information by legitimate means. Generally information is collected directly over the telephone, through completed surveys, applications and order forms either paper-based via mail or electronically through the internet.
