    What information do we collect? How do we use it?
    When you order templates or software, we need to know your name, e-mail address, and institution. This allows us to process and fulfil your orders and to notify you of the status of your order.

    We also ask for your telephone and fax numbers which enables us to contact you urgently if there is a problem with your order. For some international deliveries this number may be given to our couriers.

    We may also use the information we collect to occasionally notify you about important functionality changes, problems or upgrades to our products and services.

    Submission of the registration form indicates your consent to receive relevant email marketing messages from us unless you have indicated an objection to receive such messages by ticking the ‘opt-out’ box during registration. If you would prefer not to receive such messages you can send a blank email to with the subject line ‘opt out of marketing messages’.

    How does Meridian protect customer information?
    When you place orders or access your account information, we offer the use of a secure server. Furthermore, as required by the UK Data Protection Legislation, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we are able to disclose sensitive information to you.

Such companies and individuals will have access to personal information needed to perform these functions, but may not use it for any other purposes and are required to process the data in accordance with the UK’s Data Protection legislation.
