Can I be sure the information is accurate?
SSAC will endeavour to keep information accurate, complete and up-to-date. You may access your information and request information to be up-dated.

Two specific services are offered members that members may choose to refuse for reasons of privacy:

- Inclusion in a listing of SSAC members that will be posted on the SSAC website.
Members should advise SSAC at the time of membership renewal if they wish to exercise these options. Otherwise consent will be assumed.
