We are committed to protecting the privacy of the visitors to our website. This policy explains how we use any personal information we collect from you through our website.
Collecting your information
What information may we hold about you
You can access most of the pages on our website without giving us your personal information. However, you may choose to provide us with your personal information (name, email address, mailing address) on some pages of our websites, for instance by completing an enquiry form, requesting a publication, or expressing an interest in a seminar. By submitting your personal information, you consent to our use of the information as set out in this privacy notice.
When you attend one of our events, you may choose to provide us with your personal information (name, email address, mailing address) and let us know what you are interested in receiving further information from us about. By doing so, you are giving us permission to enter your details into our systems on your behalf. A confirmation email will be sent to you with links for you to follow so you can complete the registration process and login to our preference manager website.
We may also generate personal data about you in connection with our work for you or in connection with marketing activity. Our marketing systems record information such as your contact details, your responses to event invitations and interactions with us and with marketing emails (e.g. what events you attended, which marketing emails you have opened or what links you have accessed). They also record your preferences such as your preferred location for attending events at our offices, and of the sectors and services that you are interested in.
When you visit our website, our server will automatically record your IP address and the time and duration of your visit. We may use the information we collect about your interactions with our website to tailor our marketing communications to those areas that we consider are most likely to interest you (“profiling”).
If you attend an event at our offices, we may hold images captured by our CCTV cameras.

You also have the right to ask for inaccuracies in your data to be corrected, and in certain circumstances for us to stop processing your data or for your data to be erased. Some of these rights are not automatic, and we reserve the right to discuss with you why we might not comply with a request from you to exercise them.
