We take your privacy seriously. We want you to be in control of your personal data and its value
- What personal data G39 collects and why
- How G39 uses that information
- How individuals can access, update and delete their information
G39 needs to gather and use certain information about individuals. These can include participants, audiences, suppliers, business contacts, employees and other people the organisation has a relationship with or may need to contact. This information helps us to achieve our aims, operate more effectively and have better relationships with audiences.
What personal information do we collect and process?
The GDPR says that we are required to have a lawful basis for processing your personal data and places emphasis on us being accountable for, and transparent about this. In most cases, our lawful basis for processing data will be Contract, Legal Obligation, Legitimate Interest and Consent as explained below:
: the processing is necessary for a contract we have with you, or because you have asked us to take specific steps before entering into a contract
: the processing is necessary for us to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations)
: the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, unless there is a good reason to protect the individual’s personal data which overrides those legitimate interests (such as electronic marketing)
We collect information from you if:
- You signed up to receive information from us about forthcoming events and activities. We will record your name and email address when you sign up to our mailing list, with the option to give you postal address, phone number and any professional capacity you have or special interest group you belong to that will enable us to tailor our communications with you
