In no event will we be liable for any loss or damage including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or damage, or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of or in connection with the use of this website.
Through this website you are able to link to other websites which are not under the control of the Manta Ray Media Ltd. We have no control over the nature, content and availability of those sites. The inclusion of any links does not necessarily imply a recommendation or endorse the views expressed within them.

The following principles apply to the personally identifying information we ask for and that you provide. 'Personally identifying information' is information that individually identifies you, such as your name, physical address or email address. Any information you supply, including, where relevant, sensitive personal data relating to you will not be shared with 3rd party individuals or organisations. We would only disclose personally identifiable information to the relevant authorities if we are required to do so by law.
Personal information that this website collects and why we collect it
This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
1. NTD-SC Contact Form
If you choose to complete and submit our contact form and provide personally identifying information (typically your name and email address), this data is stored on this site, which is hosted on a secure server, with an SSL certificate. Individuals can also request access, updates, deletion or more information about the data held about them at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Site Visits Tracking
Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.
Although Google Analytics records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. Google Analytics also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data processor.
3. Email Links
Should you choose to contact us using an email link, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us.
3. Email Newsletter
Your email address will remain within MailChimp’s database for as long as we continue to use MailChimp’s services for email marketing or until you specifically request removal from the list. You can do this by unsubscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in any email newsletters that we send you or by requesting removal on the emails themselves, or by emailing email@example.com. When requesting removal via email, please send your email to us using the email account that is subscribed to the mailing list.
If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before joining our email newsletter.
While your email address remains within the MailChimp database, you will receive periodic (monthly) newsletter-style emails from us.
4. NTD ConnectOR
By choosing to register as a user on NTD ConnectOR and/or submiting a study, you may be asked to provide personally identifying information (typically your name and email address). This data is stored on this site, which is hosted on a secure server, with an SSL certificate. If you have signed up for email alerts, you will automatically be notified via the site when a study that matches your interests is posted. Individuals can also request access, updates, deletion or more information about the data held about them at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use the information collected primarily to process the task for which you visited the website. Data collected in the UK is held in accordance with the Data Protection Act. All reasonable precautions are taken to prevent unauthorised access to this information. This safeguard may require you to provide additional forms of identity should you wish to obtain information about your account details.
