Since 2003

Through our rigorous processes that apply the highest standards of confidentiality and ethical business practice which is underpinned by our Limited by Guarantee structure. Our database is globally certified and independently audited on a regular basis, ISO27001 certified and also carries with it numerous other security seals like TRUSTe, VeriSign Certified, Safe Harbour and SysTrust

It is a legal instrument that demands that any surplus is reinvested in the company not distributed to shareholders

Because the members who control and manage the company are specifically precluded from distributing the surplus between them

A Limited by Guaranteed vehicle does not have share holders; it has Members who legally cannot take a share of the profits

No, IXC cannot be sold, the Members can only leave and bring in others to replace them or wind up the company

All client confidential information would be destroyed in accordance with the ISO standards applicable at the time for the handling and destruction of data

Our rigorous process identifies issues and actively manages any potential conflicts arising. Should a situation arise whereby more than one client has an interest in a discovery, then that interest would be simultaneously offered to all
