As a part of its day to day operations Feenics is likely to receive and store personal
information to enable it to buy supplies, stock inventory, provide on-line training, receive
orders or engage with professional advisors. When you contact us by email or post, we may

Sections of Feenics’ website have restricted access to online content. To access content on
these sections of the website users must first complete a registration form. During
registration for our site, users are required to give select personal information and contact

containing Personal Data that is subject to the requirements of EU Law. Except as provided
Personal Data stored in connection with the Services to be transferred or otherwise made
available to third parties.
