What Information We Collect And How We Use It

When you subscribe for updates you will be providing an email address. This will be used to update you on matters related to the site, for example when a new article or book becomes available. Your email address will not be sold to anyone. It will ony be provided to a third party if necessary by law or for hosting the email subscriber service used to send you the updates.

If you register your interest in any produt or service, for example speaking or advisory work, you will be asked for information such as your name, contact details (phone and email), job title and company name. We will use this to contact you about your enquiry and subsequent interest in any product or service. We may also use this information to contact you about the delivery of a service or product you have contracted for.

We will not give or sell your personal information to another company. The only times we will divulge your personal information to another company is:

Our website uses Cookies, which are small data text files that are sent from a server computer during a browsing session. Cookies are typically stored on your computer’s hard drive and are used by Websites to simulate a continuous connection to that site. To make our site more responsive to your needs we use cookies to track and manage information relative to your specific interests. In this way we can tailor our site to your needs, deliver a better and more personalised service and track the pages on our site that you visit. The use of cookies automatically identifies your browser to our computers whenever you interact with our site. Your browser options allow you to disable cookies.

Lawful Basis For Processing Personal Information

We will process information where we have your consent to do so, for example, where you have consented to receive a newsletter. In many cases the lawful basis will be under a contract we have to provide a service or product to you. We may also rely on a legitimate interest to process information.

How Long We Keep Your Personal Information

Some information, such as certain financial information, needs to be kept for a period required by law. Where we hold data as a consequence of providing a product or service to a customer, the retention will be based on the terms of the contract for providing that product or service. Information related to marketing will be kept for a reasonable time (and in any event no longer than 36 months) after our last contact with you to make it easier if you choose to re-engage with us, or to facilitate a continuing discussion about a possible service or product.
