We use your information for these legitimate purposes:
- If you have signed up to receive information from us on particular issues or policies, we may contact you by telephone or by written communication (including via electronic communications, for example email) with relevant content and information, if you have consented to us contacting you in this way. You may unsubscribe from such issues-based lists at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.

We work hard to protect Red Flag and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold. In particular:
- We review our information collection, storage, and processing practices, including physical security measures, to prevent unauthorized access to our systems.
- We restrict access to personal information to Red Flag employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or their contracts terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
While no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, we strive to protect the information submitted to us. We consider the sensitivity of the personal information we collect, process, and store and use the appropriate technology to protect your personal information. We cannot, however, guarantee its absolute security.
