The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), the Data Protection Act 2018 and Privacy and Electronic Privacy Regulations (PECR), along with any other applicable legislation provide the framework for how we do this.

We act as a Data Controller for the personal data we process about our employees; our customers and suppliers (current and prospective); our visitors; enquirers and those who engage with our website and directly with us.

Where our website contains links to the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and any other third parties, please note that these websites will have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies.

The following are examples of types of personal data that we may collect. The specific kind of information collected by us will depend on the Services provided:

The lawful bases we rely on

Under the GDPR there are six lawful bases under which organisations can collect, use and store (called “processing”) personal data. We have identified four which we rely upon for our business activities: Consent, Contractual, Legitimate Interests and Legal Obligation.

Contractual: in many circumstances we rely on the lawful basis of “performance of a contract”. This enables us to process your personal data to provide the services you buy from us (or in preparation for the contract).

Consent: in some circumstances we rely on your specific consent, whereby you actively agree and “opt-in”. We will always make it clear how you can withdraw you consent, which you can do at any time.

Legal Obligation: there will be circumstances under which we are legally obliged to hold your personal data or are required to disclose it to a third party by law. This will apply for certain tax or other regulatory purposes.

Legitimate Interests: for some of our activities we rely on our legitimate business interests to collect and use your personal data. In such cases, we have been very careful to balance our interests with yours. We are confident that these activities will not have any negative impact on your privacy rights and freedoms.

We specifically rely on Legitimate Interests to:

  • send you marketing communications about our webinar programme and our products and services where we believe you will be interested in hearing about them
  • personalise the marketing content we provide you
  • undertake business sales and advertising activities
  • research publicly available business contact details
  • customise the content you see on our websites
  • share your contact details where you register on any Partner Webinars

You can always object to our marketing messages by opting out, either by contacting our Data Protection Manager or by clicking the subscription preferences link in the footer of every email we send.

If you wish to object to our reliance on Legitimate Interests for any other purpose please contact the Data Protection Manager at


We may contact you to tell you about our products, services and offerings (or updates to them) using information that you have provided to us, or that we have collected through third parties (e.g. external marketing companies).

We will only send you direct marketing communications:

  • When you have provided your consent (typically by clicking a “button” to submit a form)
  • Where we believe we can demonstrate a legitimate business interest and have balanced this with your interests and privacy

You can stop receiving direct marketing communications from us at any time. We provide a clear and easy way for you to do this for by including a subscription preferences link in the footer of every email we send.

For electronic marketing communications we adhere to the rules of the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR).

The data we collect is only used for internal review and to contact you for marketing purposes. It is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.

We may collect information about your computer (or other device) that does not, by itself, identify you by name. This may include (where available) your IP address, operating system and browser type. This helps with our system administration and allows us to report aggregate information – statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns. The purpose of the data is to improve effectiveness of the site, to help diagnose problems and to administer the sites.

Cookies and information gathering tools

Our websites (and subdomains) use cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our websites and helps us to improve them.

2020 may also collect information during your visit to our websites through automated tools, which include Web beacons, embedded web links and any other commonly used information gathering tools. A web beacon is an object that is embedded in a web page or email and is usually invisible to the user but allows checking that a user has viewed the page or email. 2020 may use the web beacons for the purpose of email tracking and page tagging for Web analytics. In addition we might use web beacons implemented through an embedded image include tracking pixel, pixel tag, 1×1 gif, and clear gif that may be implemented by using JavaScript.
