You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk). We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO so please contact us in the first instance.
It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). Contributions made by users that subsequently delete their profiles become anonymous data.
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:
Identity Data includes first name, last name, profile image, banner image, username or similar identifier and location.
Contact Data includes billing address, email address and telephone numbers.
We do not specifically collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences. However, your engagement with certain features of the platform or specific events, exhibitors and conferences may lead to us or others to being able to make interpretations about Special Category data. We reserve the right to process your data in this way and shall treat such interpreted data appropriately, including updating the legal basis on which the data is processed and updating our data protection impact assessment.
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with goods or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:
Direct interactions. You may give us your Identity, Contact and Financial Data by filling in web-based forms. This includes personal data you provide when you:
From other users of the platform.
Exhibitors and Organisers are invited to widen their networks by connecting with attendees. The exhibitors and organisers will provide us with connection data by creating a contact with you.
Automated technologies or interactions.
Third parties or publicly available sources.
We will receive personal data about you from various third parties and public sources as set out below:
Technical Data from the following parties:
We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:
Generally, we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data although you are able to set marketing and alert preferences which will be referenced before we send you alerts about relevant activity on the platform and before sending you third party direct marketing communications to you via email or text message. You can amend your alert preferences at any time through your user profile. You have the right to change your marketing and alert preferences at any time by contacting us.
We have completed a legitimate interests assessment in relation to the nature of the data processing that will take place in order to provide the platform services to users. The platform is, as far as possible, replicating the experience of a “real” event, exhibition or conference. The attendees benefit from knowledge acquisition, networking effects and market surveillance. There are additional social networking features. The organisers benefit from promotion, knowledge sharing, networking effects and market surveillance.
They too enjoy social networking features. Event organisers benefit from the opportunity to reach wider audiences and to deliver services that may not otherwise be economical or logistically possible. In order to provide these benefits, the platform will process the data gathered (both personal and non personal data.) In addition, the platform may process the data in order to create other financial opportunities. We have considered the risks to data subjects and completed a balancing test.
Further legitimate interests assessments will be carried out before proceeding with additional processing of personal data.
We have set out below, in a table format, a description of all the ways we plan to use your personal data, and which of the legal bases we rely on to do so. We have also identified what our legitimate interests are where appropriate.
Note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data. Please contact us if you need details about the specific legal ground we are relying on to process your personal data where more than one ground has been set out in the table below.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising. We have established the following personal data control mechanisms:
We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).
You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or purchased services from us and you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.
We may share your Identity, Contact, Technical, Activity and Usage, Engagement and Profile Data with third party organisers and exhibitors in order for them to form a view on what they think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you.
You may receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from such third party organisers and exhibitors or purchased services from them and you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.
We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.
You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by logging into the platform and checking or unchecking relevant boxes to adjust your marketing preferences OR by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you OR by contacting us at any time.
Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of purchasing tickets. Ticket purchases may not necessarily involve a financial payment.
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.
If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
We may share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out below:
Third party exhibitors and organisers
Specific Third Party Service Providers who we contract to provide services to the platform such as financial services providers, data verification services and data analysis tools. At present we work with:
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our external third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
We do not transfer your personal data outside the UK and European Economic Area (EEA), however some third party service providers may transfer your personal data outside the UK and EEA as part of their global processing capabilities. Whenever they transfer your personal data out of the United Kingdom and EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented :
They will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the UK.
Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the UK or European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe. For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
Details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal data are available in our retention policy which you can request from us by contacting us.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see below for further information. Engagement content is not deleted when your personal data is deleted. Instead these are anonymised, where it is possible to do so. Personal contributions to room, halls and stands that are video recorded for “catch-up” cannot be anonymised. The content of private chats and videos are not processed and will be deleted when a user is deleted. In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data.
If you wish to exercise any of your rights please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us.
Performance of Contract means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.
Comply with a legal obligation means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation that we are subject to.
