The email address will be your user name and we will issue you with a personal password and after verification, a UK Provider Reference Number (UKPRN).
We also request other information including your title, any additional phone numbers and your work address, but you don't have to give us these details. Following registration as a Registered User via the Website, we may request additional personal data from you in order to support your use of the Website.

Protecting your personal information
As a registered data controller, we are required to take appropriate technical measures to protect your personal information including making a regular backup of our system and data. We have security measures in place to make sure any personal information we collect is secure. If you are a Registered User, your account is password protected and all information including your password is on a secure server, which only a limited number of employees and sub-contractors can access. All parties with access to your information are subject to confidentiality obligations. If you think someone else knows your password, or is using it, tell us immediately and change your password using the "change password" option accessible via the Navigation panel when you login.
Even though we take appropriate technical steps to protect your security, you should remember that data transmission over the internet cannot always be guaranteed as 100% secure so you use the Website at your own risk.
