1 Information we collect and process about you

1.1 We may collect and process the following personal data about you:

1.2 We also collect, use and share aggregated data such as statistical or demographic data. Aggregated data
may be derived from your personal data, but it is not considered personal data under the Data Protection
Legislation as it does not directly or indirectly identify you. If at any time we do combine any aggregated
data with your personal data so that it can identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data,
which we will use and process in accordance with this Privacy and Cookies Policy.

2 Cookies

2.1 We and our service providers collect information about your use of our website from cookies. A cookie is
a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once it is it helps analyse
website traffic or lets us know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow website applications to
respond to you as an individual. The website application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and
dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

2.2 We use traffic log cookies to identify which of our website pages are being used. This helps us analyse
data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use
this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from our system.

2.3 Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you
find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information
about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

2.4 You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you
can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from
taking full advantage of the website.

3 Purposes and legal basis for using your personal data

3.1 Where you have requested that we provide a specific product or service to you, or you otherwise make
use of those products or services, we will process your personal data in order to perform our contract
with you and provide that product or service.

3.2 We also use the personal data we hold about you to pursue our legitimate interests in providing and
marketing our products and services to you, improving our website, services and interactions with you
and other users of our products and services in the following ways:

3.3 In some cases we may also use the personal data we hold about you to comply with our legal
obligations, or enter into or perform a contract with you.

4 Who your data can be disclosed to

4.1 We may need to disclose your data to others to ensure the effective provision to you of the products,
services and information you request. Your data may also be disclosed to the other entities as described

4.2 We may share your personal information with any member of our group of companies. Our group of
companies may, from time to time, include any holding company and any of its or our subsidiaries. In
some circumstances a group member with whom we share your personal information will act as a joint
controller of your personal information (and we will decide together the purposes and means by which
we will process your personal data) and in others we will act as independent controllers (processing your
personal data for each group member’s independent purposes).

4.3 We may share your information with selected third parties including:

4.4 If you register for or attend any of our events (including webinars) we may share your contact details with
the event sponsors or partners so that they can contact you for marketing purposes. We will only do so
with your specific consent, and we will identify such third parties when obtaining that consent. These
parties are independent controllers of your data, and will be subject to applicable data protection laws
when they process your data, and their own privacy policies will apply to that processing by them. We
may also share your relevant personal data with our selected partners where that is necessary to enable
us to run the event (for example, the webinar platform provider, such as Zoom). Sometimes, it may also
be necessary for you to share your personal data directly with such a webinar platform provider. In these
circumstances the webinar platform provider will also be an independent controller of your data, and will
be subject to applicable data protection laws when they process your data, and their own privacy policy
will apply to that processing by them.

4.5 We may disclose your personal information to third parties if:

4.6 We review all our relationships with third parties carefully so that we can be sure as possible that their
practices match our own commitments to you relating to privacy and security. We also comply with the
Data Protection Legislation in our dealings with these third parties to ensure that your information is
appropriately protected.

5 Direct marketing and how you can change your preference

5.1 We may send direct marketing communications to you, including by email, telephone or SMS or mail. If
we are required by law to have your consent to do this then we will only do so if we have that consent.

longer receive it. When we communicate with you via email you will also be given the opportunity to set
or amend any preferences that you have indicated to us.

have given to us. You can do this by going to the following link and updating your user preferences:  Sometimes we may need to contact you further to ask
you for additional information so that we can comply with your request.

6 Where we store and transfer your data

6.1 Where we store your information ourselves it is stored on our secure servers in the UK or the EU.
However, where we share your information with third parties this may involve transferring it to a country
outside the UK, the EU and the European Economic Area (EEA). This may include countries that do not
have data protection laws which are as strong as those in the UK or EU. Where we do this we will take
the steps required under the Data Protection Legislation to ensure that your information is appropriately
protected. If you would like any further information about this then please contact us using the details in
the Contact section below.

6.2 Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will
do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to
our website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use
appropriate procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access, loss or damage.

7 How long we keep your information for

7.1 How long we keep your information will depend on the purpose for which we use it. We will only retain
your information for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy and Cookies Policy and
as is necessary to comply with our legal obligations. We do not keep more information than we need for
the particular purpose.

7.2 Where we have provided you with a product or service we will keep an archived record of your personal
data for a period of up to 6 years after termination (unless a longer period is prescribed by law) for the
purposes of responding to legal disputes and legal or regulatory enquiries or investigations only, but will
not use this data for any other purpose.

7.3 If you ask us to stop sending direct marketing communications to you, we will keep the minimum amount
of information necessary (such as your name and email address) to ensure that we are able to adhere to
your request.

8 Third party websites

8.1 Our website and other information we send to you (including any emails or direct marketing) may contain
links to other websites. If you follow a link to any of these websites these websites may collect
information from you. Please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not
accept any responsibility or liability for these websites or their policies. Please check these policies before
you submit any personal data to these websites.

9 Your rights

about you. These may include rights to: request a copy of the personal data that we hold, request that we
correct personal data if it is inaccurate, request that we erase or block your personal data, and to object
to our processing of your personal data. These rights are limited in some situations. For example, if we
