Purpose and legal basis for processing

Our purpose for collecting the information is so we can provide you with a service and let you know about what is going on in your chosen topic of interest, industry and upcoming events.

The legal basis we rely on for processing your personal data is your consent under article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR.

What we need

To ensure that we are providing you with the information that is most appropriate for you we require you to register for access to our website before registering for any newsletter - there is currently no charge for this. Depending on your circumstances we ask for some of the following information: your name, email address, market sector you work in, your job role and function.

Why we need it

We use your email address to send you our newsletter(s) your have opted for and all the remaining information is used to ensure that we provide a very specific experience for you requirements, as each of our user groups is able to access and view information just for them. For example, some information related to a breach news item may only be relevant for a home users to action if they have suffered a breach, whereas other information may be relevant to a business on responding to a similar breach - our service is filtered based on user groups.

This information helps us ensure that we are meeting the needs of each user group.

What we do with it

We only use your details to provide the service.

We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies including clear gifs to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter.

You will receive a confirmation email once you have submitted your details and then the newsletters on a regular basis as selected by you.

How long we keep it

For information about how long we hold personal data, we are currently finalising a retention schedule to make it clearer.
