Types of data we collect
When someone visits a GFIA website, we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not allow Google to make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
We use Lead Forensics to identify the public IP address of visitors to our websites via a line of Java script inserted into webpages. Lead Forensics uses the IP address to tell us the corporate information of the organisation registered to that IP address (individuals are not identified.) Lead Forensics also records the activities undertaken by these visitors on our websites. This information may be used by our businesses for follow up marketing with relevant individuals at the organisations.
As part of the sign-up process to register for one of our events, join our mailing list, or to request further information about a particular product, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to send you the information that you have requested, to contact you if you have a legitimate interest in our other products and services, we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re satisfied.
We use Adestra to deliver our newsletter and email marketing campaigns. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing Rebecca McConnell at email@example.com
We do not rent or sell your Personal Information to anyone. We may share and disclose information (including Personal Information) about our customers in the following limited circumstances:
Vendors, consultants and other service providers: We may share your information with third party vendors, consultants and other service providers who we employ to perform tasks on our behalf. These companies include (for example) our registration and event ticketing providers, payment processing companies, market research, , event management, website analytics companies (e.g., Google Analytics), CRM service providers (e.g., Salesforce), email service providers (e.g., Adestra), data cleansing and processing services. Unless we tell you differently and you consent, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
ONE Communications & Marketing Group Companies: We may also share your personal data with other companies under the One CMG Group brand if you have a legitimate interest in that product.
Disclosures for National Security or Law Enforcement: Under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose your Personal Information in response to valid requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
Exhibitors and sponsors: If you choose to allow your badge to be scanned at an event, we may pass the information you provide to third parties. Generally this will be via a process whereby you, as the user, visit or interact with a third party e.g. visit a stand at an exhibition, have your badge scanned or click on an asset branded and provided by a third party. If you wish to change your contact preferences with an individual exhibitor/sponsor, please follow their own unsubscribe request details. Unsubscribing with one of our products will stop that product from contacting you in the future, but not the individual third parties whom you have interacted with independently.
Links To Other Websites
Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
