We will collect and process all or some of the following personal data about you:
In this section, we set out the purposes for which we use personal data that we collect and hold and, in compliance with our obligations, identify the “legal grounds” on which we rely to process the information.
We use your Personal data only when we have a valid legal basis to do so. Depending on the circumstance, we may rely on your consent or the fact that the processing is necessary to fulfil a contract with you, protect your vital interests or those of other persons, or to comply with law. We may also process your Personal data where we believe it is in our or others’ legitimate interests, taking into consideration your own interests, and rights.
To communicate effectively with you and conduct our business, including to fulfil your requests:
We might use your personal data in order to effectively respond to your contact request; your registration request to events organized by us; or to your appointment request with one of our experts; to respond to your request for proposal or offer if you are interested in doing business with us; or we may contact you if we are interested in doing business with you; to respond to your job application; to otherwise communicate with you; or with other internal and external parties concerning you; or to carry out our obligations arising from any agreements entered into between you and us.
When we use your information for these purposes, we often base such use on your prior and informed consent, or on contractual necessity (which means we will not be able to fulfil our part of an agreement without using your data to do so), or on our legitimate interests (which means we have legitimate business interests that we wish to protect and cannot do so without using your personal data).
To provide you with access to restricted Website areas:
In order to provide you with an online account and access to restricted areas, where you have filled in a form to create an account on our website.

For research and development purposes:
To analyze your personal data in order to better understand you so that we can continue to develop and improve our products and services.
When we use your information for these purposes, we base such use on our legitimate interests (which means we have legitimate business interests to improve our products and services and cannot do so without using your personal data).

Depending on the types of cookies we place, which can range from strictly necessary to marketing cookies, we base such use on our legitimate interests to ensure proper functionality of our website or on your prior and informed consent. When using your data for content relevance, we typically base this on our legitimate interests (which means we have a legitimate interest to keep our website content current and updated and fit for your use. We will be unable to do this without using your personal data).
To monitor certain activities:
We collect information about you to monitor queries and transactions to ensure service quality or to comply with our legal obligations to combat fraud.
When we use your information for these purposes, we base such use on our legal duty (which means that there are different laws that compel us to monitor for certain behaviors and activities) or on our legitimate interests (which means we have legitimate business interests to monitor for fraudulent transactions and cannot do so without using your personal data).
To inform you of changes:
To notify you about changes to our Services
When we use your information for these purposes, we base such use on our legitimate interests (which means we cannot communicate changes to you without using your personal data).
To reorganize or make changes to our business:
Should we ever sell our business or a part thereof; or undergo re-organization, we might be obligated to disclose your personal data to the relevant third party (or its advisors) as part of any due diligence process for the purpose of analyzing any proposed sale or re-organization. We may also need to transfer your personal data to that re-organized entity or third party after the sale or reorganization for them to use for the same purposes as set out in this notice.

We may also use your personal data to comply with our regulatory requirements or dialogue with regulators as applicable, which may include disclosing your personal data to third parties, the court service and/or regulators or law enforcement agencies in connection with enquiries, proceedings or investigations by such parties anywhere in the world or where compelled to do so. Where permitted and feasible, we will direct any such request to you or notify you before responding unless to do so would prejudice the prevention or detection of a crime.
When we use your information for these purposes, we base such use on contractual necessity (which means we will not be able to fulfil our part of an agreement without using your data to do so), our legal obligations (which means we are legally required to comply with certain laws), or on our legitimate interests (which means we have legitimate business interests in cooperating with law enforcement and regulatory authorities in compliance with applicable laws and cannot do so without using your personal data).
In order to fulfil your requests, we may need to share or otherwise transfer your personal data within our group of companies such as to a shared services company located in a different region or jurisdiction to you. Where appropriate we may also transfer your personal data to third parties, for example external event organizers or partner companies who may be in a better position to satisfy your request.
We may also share your personal data with our service providers who perform services on our behalf. We contractually require these service providers to use or disclose the personal data only as necessary to perform services on our behalf.
Security over the internet
As you will know, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. We maintain commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal data in accordance with data protection legislative requirements.
All information you provide to us is stored on our or our subcontractors’ secure servers and accessed and used subject to our security policies and standards. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential and for complying with any other security procedures that we notify you of. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
International data transfer
Where we transfer personal data from the European Economic Area (the “EEA”) to a country outside the EEA (or a country that is NOT considered as offering an adequate level of protection as adopted by the European Commission on the basis of Article 45 of the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR), we may be required to take specific additional measures to safeguard the relevant personal data and such transfer will
be based on legal grounds and mechanisms justifying such transfer, such as EU Commission-approved standard contractual clauses, or other legal grounds permitted by applicable law.
Certain countries outside the EEA have been approved by the European Commission as providing essentially equivalent protections to EEA data protection laws and therefore no additional safeguards are required to export personal data to these jurisdictions (see the full list here http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/adequacy/index_en.htm).
This international data transfer can for example occur when your personal data may be transferred to, or stored in, or accessed by our staff or suppliers in a destination outside the country in which you are located. Despite any differences in the regional or national laws, we will, in all circumstances, safeguard personal data as set out in this Privacy Notice.
The same applies to transfer requirements from all globally privacy regulations. All international transfers will be in full compliance of the exporting country as well as the importing country
Our retention periods for Personal data are based on business needs and local legal requirements. We retain Personal data for as long as is necessary for the processing purpose(s) for which the information was collected, and any other permissible, related purpose. For example, we may retain the information you provided to us as long as necessary to provide you with the services you requested through our website and until the time limit for claims which may arise from those services has expired, or to comply with regulatory requirements regarding the retention of such data. So, if we use your personal data for more than one purpose, we will retain it until the purpose with the latest period expires; but we will stop using it for the purpose(s) with a shorter period once that period expires.
When personal data is no longer needed, we either irreversibly anonymize the data (and we may further retain and use the anonymized information) or securely destroy the data.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will inform you if we intend to use your information for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by not checking certain boxes in the forms we use to collect your personal data. You can also exercise the right at any time by Contacting us as set out in the “Contacting us” section below.
We will use reasonable endeavors to ensure that your personal data is accurate. In order to assist us with this, you should notify us of any changes to the personal data that you have provided to us by Contacting us as set out in the “Contacting us” section below.
