Third Party Services and Data Security

Constant Contact: Constant Contact is a trusted global leader in email marketing. We uses Constant Contact to send our email Spotlight and all other email communications to members and other contacts. Constant Contact adheres to the highest level of data and internet security. SDN does not use Constant Contact’s tools to collect data. Rather we collect your data directly through the SDN website, and we export that data to Constant Contact when we send email. All emails we send through Constant Contact allow you to opt out from future emails. Click here to read Constant Contact’s Privacy Statement.
When you apply to become a member of SDN, we ask you for several types of information. Personal Information includes your name, e-mail address, and city and country of residence, phone number, interest in SDN.
